EY & SAP partner to drive smart chemical digitization


EY has launched its Intelligent Chemicals Solution (ICS), to support chemical companies with innovative technologies across the chain and help prepare their businesses for the future through digital transformation.

Based on the latest version of SAP S/4HANA Cloud, the new solution covers key chemical processes including: production planning and detailed scheduling, sales and service, finance, procurement, enterprise asset management, multi-resource scheduling, and environment, health and safety management.

ICS combines a rich industry reference model, key performance indicators and benchmarks, risk controls, test scripts, and demos mapped to the SAP Best Practices for Chemicals package and cross-industry best practices.

EY Intelligent Chemicals Solution is designed to accelerate critical business transformations, bringing leading practice processes to clients to help optimize costs and enhance revenues. The solution also improves program design by taking an experience-led approach to workshops, utilizing the embedded EY industry model.

Jade Rodysill, EY Americas chemicals and advanced materials industry leader, said: “ICS allows companies to improve processes seamlessly and drive digital enablement. Customers who want to redesign key functions and processes can now configure a model in a matter of days. Using a decoupled, two-stage approach, ICS allows EY and SAP to work on a company’s methods, data, and operating model. The solution’s unique value proposition offers the ability to map a company’s business and operating models to a technical one, built in EY’s environment, test it, and port it to a customer’s environment.”
