ABeam Consulting to adopt SAP S/4HANA® Cloud
As its internal systems environment

~A world-leading early adopter, leveraging knowledge to help companies convert to the cloud~

ABeam Consulting Ltd.

 ABeam Consulting Ltd. (Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo; Tatsuya Kamoi, President) in February 2021 will adopt the new cloud computing service SAP S/4HANA® Cloud, provided by SAP Japan Co. Ltd. (Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo; Hirofumi Suzuki, President), as its infrastructure platform.
 The new system uses RISE with SAP1, the most recently announced new cloud offering by SAP, which transforms companies into intelligent enterprises.


 Factors such as COVID-19 and the development of digital technology have increased uncertainty about the changes affecting industry. In order to increase corporate competitiveness and achieve sustained growth in an environment like this, building a business infrastructure platform that assumes agile cloud-based responses to drastic changes in business is essential. According to the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications (MIC) 2020 White Paper on Information and Communications in Japan, implementation of cloud computing is among the essential topics that companies must address, given the year-by-year increase in the ratio of companies that are using cloud computing.
 At ABeam Consulting, we are adopting this solution in order to apply the knowledge we gain by leading the world in utilizing it, thereby further bolstering the support we provide to clients as we strengthen our own corporate competitiveness by moving our IT infrastructure to the cloud. Moreover, we will achieve high-quality migration in the shortest possible time frame with this implementation by using ABeam Cloud® Conversion Express Factory for SAP S/4HANA®2, the SAP S/4HANA® implementation support package solution provided by ABeam Consulting.


■Aims and objectives
Accelerating, refining client services through the shift to agile IT infrastructure and high-value-added employee operations
With the IT infrastructure provided by SAP S/4HANA® Cloud, using the latest functions becomes possible with effortless operation and maintenance. This reduces the operational burden of IT that until now has been accomplished by setting up offshore development locations primarily in China, enabling a shift in human resources toward high-value-added operations and acceleration of in-house DX efforts. It also enables seamless links with SAP®SuccessFactors®, the personnel management system already implemented, as well as the SAP Fieldglass® external human resources management system, realizing accelerated, refined support for client management issues.

Further boosting value provided through support for customer business
With the ABeam Cloud®3 business innovation platform provided by ABeam Consulting, we provide the functions needed for many issues that confront businesses, as well as the knowledge and know-how needed for corporate transformation, in the form of templates categorized by issue and by industry. By now applying our company's experience to implement the ABeam Cloud® through SAP S/4HANA® Cloud, we intend to further improve the value we provide to clients as we support their businesses by increasing usability and speed in the services available through the ABeam Cloud® global manufacturing and sales template and other industrial infrastructure systems templates, as well as stronger links with numerous peripheral systems and services.

■Endorsement from Seiji Takahashi, Principal and Group Leader, Information Systems Group, ABeam Consulting Ltd.
I think that this migration to SAP S/4HANA® Cloud will enable continuous operation of IT systems and bring efficiency to maintenance work, making it possible to shift human resources into jobs with higher added value. In addition to reinforcing links with the state-of-the-art security of cloud-based authentication, further utilization of the cloud services that SAP provides, and more seamless links to a range of services provided by other companies will promote further strengthening of our company's DX.

■Endorsement from Uwe Grigoleit, SVP & General Manager of SAP S/4HANA® for SAP SE
