About Georgsmarienhütte (GMH)

Georgsmarienhütte's challenges

GMH’s 'Future ERP' transformation project involves the migration of several SAP ERP systems to create the basis for a structural shift from a decentralised to a centralised organisational structure.

For the SAP HCM part, the main challenge was to consolidate and migrate the four ERP systems with different HCM clients, and to standardise the processes. To this end, some of the data needed to be transformed to fit into the new structure.

The holistic and solution-driven project approach adopted by EPI-USE Labs has enabled a high degree of economic efficiency for the project.

The solution

It was important for GMH to find a partner that had the required SAP HCM-specific expertise, and solutions that could manage the individual HCM data models. The depth of knowledge in specialised areas such as incentive wages tipped the balance in favour of EPI-USE Labs.

Another deciding factor was the holistic approach to the project, which not only supported the actual transformation, but also enabled holistic, automated testing and the required provision of current and consistent test data.

The results

Having proved their worth during project execution and demonstrated increased efficiency and quality, all these solutions (HCM Productivity Suite) will now continue to be used by GMH even after the project. Query Manager for HCM will help to make the HR department more independent in SAP HCM reporting, and improve efficiency in this area. To continue to be able to provide consistent test data in a flexible way, GMH will use the Data Sync Manager™ (DSM) suite both in SAP HCM and also in the complete SAP ERP system. Testing in SAP HCM will be optimised by Variance Monitor, a solution for determining discrepancies in HCM data.
