Cibra is a pioneer in Brazil with the implementation of SAP S/4HANA Cloud in a BLUEFIELD™ journey

Jan 10, 2024

Cibra, one of the largest and most innovative fertilizer companies in Brazil, has chosen delaware Brasil to accelerate its growth with the implementation of SAP S/4HANA Cloud, in the first BLUEFIELD™ project in Brazil. 

Cibra: pioneering, innovative and sustainable

Cibra has been a recognized force on the Brazilian fertilizer scene for almost three decades. Founded in 1994, the company is an example of innovation and leadership in the sector. Headquartered in Camaçari-BA, Cibra has adopted a remote working model (Work From Anywhere - WFA) for its corporate team, demonstrating its willingness to innovate even in the way it operates.

With 13 plants strategically located in Brazil's main agro-producing states, Cibra is a benchmark in the production, import, formulation and distribution of fertilizers. It was also a pioneer in the launch of CibraCoin, the world's first cryptoasset linked to fertilizers, and the first manufacturer to offer e-commerce for the product, CibraStore.

Its commitment to excellence in the workplace is also undeniable; the company was certified by GPTW (Great Place To Work) for the fifth year running and achieved the position of 17th Best Company to Work For in Agribusiness.

The search for innovation and strategic growth

As the fertilizer market has evolved in recent years, Cibra has kept a close eye on emerging trends. As part of its growth strategy, it became clear that the company needed to adapt to the dynamic changes in the sector. The existing SAP system, although solid, no longer offered the flexibility needed for the planned expansion. In addition, the constant need to carry out a large volume of updates whenever new satellite systems were added or modifications made posed a considerable challenge.

It was in this context that the strategic partnership with delaware Brasil became crucial. The adoption of SAP S/4HANA Cloud represents the search for the latest in the ERP market, a change that will not only improve their integration capacity, but will also drive the evolution of their processes.

With the goal of reaching a production of 5 million tons by 2026, the ACELERA project plays a key role in this strategy, involving the restructuring of processes and systems to accommodate such growth in volumes. This initiative will enable agile and incremental evolution, ensuring that Cibra is prepared for the future and remains among the largest in the fertilizer sector.

Excellence towards SAP S/4HANA Cloud: Cibra's partnership with delaware

By opting for SAP S/4HANA Cloud, Cibra is setting a new standard for evolution and performance. This leap in quality includes an environment upgraded by SAP, in a BLUEFIELD™ journey, implemented by delaware Brasil.

Using the Hana in-memory database will not only give us exceptional performance, but will also provide the security that our data backups will be virtually instantaneous. In addition, we will gain time in data access and transactions, with an improvement of approximately 25%, according to information provided by SAP.
