Development of application architecture to support the merger of two companies
The customer is one of the largest consumer products/food manufacturing companies in Norway.
Customer need/ Project scope
As part of a post-merger integration process, a new application architecture had to be developed for the merged operation. At the same time, a roadmap for the implementation of a shared, SAP-based system platform was required.
Brief description of Akselera’s role, deliverables and results
Akselera teamed up with Lodestone (later acquired by Infosys) to deliver this application strategy project. As this was part of a larger integration program, we were asked to deliver the application strategy in just seven weeks. We interviewed several key individuals, conducted several process/system-oriented workshops, analyzed the architecture of the two existing SAP solutions, and involved key resources from both organizations in defining the future application architecture. Based on the agreed architecture, we defined a roadmap detailing how the different organizations could migrate into one shared, and improved, SAP solution.
