Infosys-powered SAP upgrade enables Sidmar to derive continuous business value while significantly reducing operational costs
Sidmar is a part of Arcelor, the world's second largest steel producer. It caters to the automotive industry and other sectors that require high levels of quality, including white goods, furniture and construction.
Sidmar wanted to upgrade to a recent SAP version for improved additional functionality and shorter upgrade cycles in the future. The SAP upgrade would also provide an opportunity to replace custom modifications with standard SAP objects. It would enable the organization to derive continuous business value while reducing operational costs.
Sidmar's highly dynamic system with large ongoing SAP projects needed dexterous treatment. Changes due to ongoing projects and production support were continuous; therefore, it was important to manage additional complexity while ensuring minimal impact to business. On-time delivery was extremely critical to the client's competitiveness.
- Infosys completed a rigorous assessment of the expected impact of the SAP upgrade. The evaluation was based on the analysis provided by the proprietary Infosys upgrade tool.

- Over 20% cost savings as an outcome of using Infosys' Global Delivery Model
