Adaro Energy optimizes business efficiency with SUSE
“The deployment of SAP S/4HANA on SLES for SAP Applications is an important step that provides real-time analytics for business insights throughout the enterprise, thereby aiding agile monitoring and decision making.” Eka Suharto Head of IT Adaro Energy.
Indonesian energy producer Adaro Energy has experienced strong growth across its 8 business lines and 70 business units in recent years. A lack of centralized data and consistent business processes, however, created challenges around standardization, financial consolidation, product costing, procurement, and maintenance processes.
Tasked with consolidating a complex mix of on-premises infrastructure, different enterprise resource planning (ERP) applications and a wide range of configurations and customizations, head of IT, Eka Suharto, sought an ERP solution and technology implementation partner that could harmonize the key operating pillars of the organization. The end goal? To drive smarter business integration, cost reduction and production efficiencies.
Adaro chose SAP S/4HANA on Google Cloud Platform as its new ERP system and with guidance from partner, Cloud Comrade, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) for SAP Applications was selected to support groupwide SAP S/4HANA deployment. SLES is SAP’s preferred Linux platform, and the most popular platform globally for the SAP HANA real-time database – which made it a natural choice. Ease and speed of deployment and optimized performance around compliance and security were also major considerations behind Adaro’s selection of SLES for SAP Applications.
Creating clear visibility across the entire organization
The new SAP S/4HANA landscape on SLES for SAP Applications consolidates financial information that was previously spread across multiple repositories in different systems. As a result, Adaro finance teams now have fast and reliable access to all the information they need, helping the company grow more efficiently.
Since SUSE’s deployment, time and effort spent managing asset depreciation has been reduced by 78% and 99.999% availability for critical SAP S/4HANA applications has been achieved. Time and effort previously spent on payroll processing has been reduced by 99%.
The deployment of SAP S/4HANA on SLES for SAP Applications powers real-time analytics for business insights throughout the enterprise, aiding agile monitoring and decision making.
With future innovation in mind Adaro’s new ERP solution provides the agile foundation required to enter the renewable energy sector. Thanks to the advanced AI and IoT capabilities supported by SAP S/4HANA, the platform will continue to deliver benefits for years to come.
