Fujitsu and SNP sign global partnership agreement

Fujitsu Ltd and Schneider-Neureither & Partner SE (SNP) have signed a global partnership agreement to accelerate SAP S/4HANA conversions through the Bluefield approach.

The deadline for the maintenance cut-off for SAP ECC 6 is approaching, and existing SAP users are advised to complete the conversion to S/4HANA and move to the next-generation ERP platform.

Under the partnership, SNP will provide the technical know-how of its Bluefield approach to Fujitsu to perform S/4HANA conversion and data transformation projects. Fujitsu will also resell licenses of CrystalBridge, the data transformation software platform of SNP, which consists of modules that automate the analysis, data transition and tests.

Michael Eberhardt, SNP chief operating officer, said: “We are excited to partner with Fujitsu given their global presence and professionalism, their leading technical approach, and their strong industry capabilities. This partnership underpins the fact that our software and partner-centric strategy resonates well with the increasing market demand for automated software-based data transformations.”

Shunsuke Onishi, Fujitsu corporate executive officer, head of private enterprise business and head of global services business group, said: “Leveraging SNP’s technology with a strong global partnership will position Fujitsu to achieve optimal business infrastructure reform and modernisation utilising SAP’s solutions, which represent the de facto standard for enterprise applications. This move will also allow us to accelerate structural reforms for growth including mergers, integration, and carve-outs.”
