NTT DATA Business Solutions breaks ground with SAP S/4HANA® Cloud for Geographe Enterprises

BRISBANE – November 16, 2017 – NTT DATA Business Solutions, a leading provider of end-to-end digital technology services and part of NTT DATA Group, today announced it has been chosen as trusted partner by Geographe Enterprises to deploy SAP S/4HANA® Cloud – providing a next-generation solution to deliver improved business outcomes.

SAP S/4HANA is designed for in-memory computing, allowing companies to “Run Live” by gaining instant access to detailed, real-time information. SAP S/4HANA Cloud delivers the power of a digital core with the key benefits expected from a cloud solution, including the scalability, ease of management and security businesses need to excel in today’s fast-paced digital economy. Geographe will be the first customer in Western Australia, and the first manufacturing customer in Australia and New Zealand (ANZ), to deploy SAP S/4HANA Cloud.

Geographe Enterprises is a leading provider of technical and commercial solutions to the mining and resource industries. Geographe has been a long-standing SAP customer, working with NTT DATA since 2011 to drive digital innovation and transformation.

“Geographe has been using SAP software since 2001, bedding down its system to create a stable and efficient operating environment. The move to SAP S/4HANA Cloud from SAP ERP on-premise will provide greater flexibility, real-time analytics and broader scope of functionality at a low operating cost,” said Nick Binns, Managing Director Australia, NTT DATA Business Solutions.

“NTT DATA is proud to be Geographe’s trusted partner, further validating our market-leading position in delivering insights, solutions and outcomes that matter to SMEs in Australia, helping them to make digital transformation a reality,” added Binns.  

“Technology underpins everything we do at Geographe, and in the past few years we have truly transformed our business systems, enabling us to operate more efficiently as we scale,” said Sam Hyder, Chief Executive Officer at Geographe Enterprises. “With SAP S/4HANA Cloud we hope to build on the success we’ve seen to date. This is an exciting opportunity for us to add value for our customers and further transform our user experience.”

Vince Randall, General Manager for SAP S/4HANA Cloud for SAP in Australia and New Zealand, said that Geographe’s adoption of SAP S/4HANA Cloud helps provide a low-risk, fast-to-market platform on which it can transform its operations and adopt a continuous innovation mindset.

“Cloud ERP is seeing tremendous momentum in the Australian market. And with support from leading SAP partners such as NTT DATA, organisations like Geographe can continue to innovate for the benefit of their customers with intelligent ERP. It is an exciting time for SAP and its partner ecosystem, and we look forward to working with Geographe to fuel continued growth and success.”

NTT DATA will work closely with Geographe for a fast deployment, planned to go live early 2018.
