SNP and ThoughtFocus announce partnership

SNP Schneider-Neureither & Partner SE, a leading provider of business transformation solutions, today announced a partnership with ThoughtFocus, a leading US digital transformation company. The partnership will offer transformation software and services jointly with ThoughtFocus SAP Consulting Services to help organizations understand and address the complexities of transformational change. The new team will assist companies in achieving successful migrations to SAP S/4HANA®, an industry leading next generation business suite built for a digital and networked world.

The SNP Transformation Platform analyzes the SAP ERP environment to accelerate business transformation, with lower cost and risk. SNP software simulations provide a deeper understanding of an organization’s ERP landscape to deliver comprehensible recommendations. ThoughtFocus’ SAP implementation services organization applied the SNP Transformation Platform to assess the need for custom software development and integration for a large, multi-national metals supplier and fabricator. Results of the analysis using SNP’s software enabled the ThoughtFocus team to quickly guide the client towards the best migration path for SAP S/4HANA® with the least amount of financial and implementation risk.

SAP S/4HANA® is dramatically changing all critical enterprise functions from logistics and customer service to marketing and finance. It enables businesses to run in real time, providing immediate ability to transact, analyze and predict. SAP S/4HANA® also lowers the cost of operation, integrates with cloud services and runs new business processes with greater simplification. Migrating to SAP S/4HANA® can be complex and requires expertise and tools to develop the most rapid and least risky upgrade path for the organization. The partnership between SNP and ThoughtFocus provides better insights through the unique combination of SNP software and ThoughtFocus’ industry expertise and SAP implementation skills.

Roger Elwell, VP of Sales and Partner Alliances, said “SNP is pleased to welcome ThoughtFocus to our growing partnership program. ThoughtFocus is has been recognized as an emergent leader in the growing SAP S/HANA® market and we share the same objective of making our customers successful through a better understanding of business transformation planning. ThoughtFocus has integrated SNP software into its own processes to give its clients a detailed understanding of the SAP features in use and how the organization will be impacted by its migration to SAP S/4HANA®”.
“We helped a major client avoid time consuming and costly approaches to SAP S/4HANA® migration using SNP software to identify potential challenges on its upgrade path”, states Tony DeGregorio, ThoughtFocus CTO. “This deeper level of insight gave our client more flexibility in making the trade-offs necessary to achieve the best outcome. We are very selective in using third-party tools and we chose SNP because of the alignment with our own SAP S/4HANA® methodology. We look forward to continued success using the SNP software portfolio”.
SNP and ThoughtFocus are sponsors at SAPPHIRE NOW® and ASUG Annual Conference and will present at the major industry event, on June 5-7, 2018 in Orlando, Fla. SAPPHIRE NOW® attendees are invited to join SNP and ThoughtFocus at a joint “Ask the Experts” session on Wednesday, June 6 from 1-2 pm at the ThoughtFocus booth (#279). The session will feature Steele Arbeeny, CTO at SNP and Tony DeGregorio, CTO at ThoughtFocus. The discussion will include an overview of upgrade migration paths to SAP S/4HANA® and how to achieve the best outcomes.
