smartShift, a Cambridge Technology Enterprises (NSE: CTE) company and the leading provider of automated optimization of complex IT systems and cloud transformation services, announced that a Fortune Global 500 Company leveraged smartShift to automatically correct code issues and modernize the large ABAP™ code base in their SAP ERP system.

smartShift’s automated upgrade and Unicode solution was an integral component for this Fortune Global 500 Company to streamline its SAP upgrade process from Release 4.6c to ECC 6.0 Enhancement Pack 3 with Unicode conversion.
