Think of luxury, and you think of Bentley. It produces British sporting grand tourers that are not only beautiful but also exhilarating to drive.
Bentley uses SAP to support their business. There is a permanent need to add and change data held in SAP. In car assembly, there are many different components, and changes to an assembly could require changes in excess of 6,000 SAP records. At the time, data was uploaded either manually or through ABAP scripts.
The ability for SAP to react quickly to changes in the business was impaired by the complexities and time needed to change SAP data. There was also a real financial loss in terms of time and resource expenditure required to get the job done.
Key IT and Business Challenges
