Satriun Group implements SAP BusinessObjects Planning & Consolidation on HANA (SAP BPC HANA) as a group FP&A Reporting Tool. The 24 Business Units and 1’300 Reporting Units benefit from an agile and flexible application.
Engie is a global energy player and an expert operator in the three businesses of electricity, natural gas, and energy services. The Group develops its businesses around a model based on responsible growth to take on the major challenges of energy’s transition to a low-carbon economy: access to sustainable energy, climate-change mitigation and adaptation, security of supply, and the rational use of resources.
The group reorganization in 2016, switching from 6 Business Lines to 25 Business Units (BUs), forced the FP&A Group Service to adapt their Excel-based reporting to a more robust solution. A project started in July 2015, the first lot went live in January 2016. Engie chose SAP BusinessObjects 10.1 version, based on the in- memory technology SAP HANA (SAP BPC HANA). The solution is deployed on 8 servers to reach around 800 users.
Despite the first objective to create a tool for upward reporting to Group, Engie aimed also at giving autonomy to BUs to further implement the solution. The project has not only been an IT project – analytical schemes, processes, and reporting were redesigned.
An team formed by Engie, Ginini antipode and Satriun Group experts has contributed to success by participating in the designing of the application, building data models and reports, deploying the solution thanks to trainings and change management.
