It did not stop with the migration to SAP Commerce Cloud. As part of the unbundling from the old owner, the HR system SAP SuccessFactors was also migrated to an environment fully managed by Fabory. The database behind the SAP ERP system was also redesigned. "And it all had to be done yesterday so that we could get back to focusing on growing our business as quickly as possible," says Muralidhar. "With delaware, we have a partner who understands all the different components and technologies."
Ultimately, the Fabory and delaware team managed to complete the disentanglement and the migration to SAP Commerce Cloud within six months. "I am impressed that we met the tight deadline," observes Muralidhar. "The migration to SAP Commerce Cloud meant the migration of large amounts of data and a change of processes. It was much more than a lift and shift. Upon go-live we received dedicated support from both SAP and delaware to promptly resolve any issues that arose to make sure the operations could continue to run."
According to Van Eyken, this success is partly due to good management. "From an early stage, there was a clear project plan that left no room for interpretation. There was a strong IT team at Fabory to support the integration, and the goals and deadlines were clear to everyone. This enabled us to make decisions quickly, and we were able to achieve a lot in a short space of time."
