The Group Acquedotto Pugliese SpA (AQP) is the public drinking water supply infrastructure in the Apulia region and some municipalities of Campania. The Group supplies drinking water to approximately 4 million people in Apulia and 30,000 in Campania. This amounts to about 30% of the total population of Southern Italy, where improving the water infrastructure is of fundamental importance for the area's progress.
Given the high population density of Southern Italy which must be guaranteed the supply of public water, AQP deemed it necessary to digitally evolve the management tools at its disposal.
AQP thus embarked on a process of digital transformation by initiating the migration to SAP S/4HANA remotely. In order to allow AQP to obtain the maximum added value from this operation, Exprivia and SNP have included a system scan with Crystal Bridge®, the data transformation platform created by SNP, in the evaluation.
To support the transformation schedule requested by the customer, Exprivia and SNP have begun the migration process remotely: a fundamental aspect considering the current epidemic. Among other things, the migration to SAP S/4HANA included the introduction of a new SAP GL, General Ledge, for finance and accounting. Moreover, thanks to the Bluefield solution created by SNP, it was possible to integrate the solutions and data previously used in the old system directly within the new system, all while continuing to use them. Following the migration, the project includes the revision - based on the new innovative features offered by SAP S/4HANA - of AQP's core processes and the adaptation of its Business Intelligence systems.
Exprivia and SNP have clearly demonstrated their key expertise in the remote implementation of complex projects. The migration to SAP S/4HANA allows to support the customer in addressing the challenges and opportunities of the digital age in a flexible, rapid and always up-to-date way. The new S4 suite is designed to provide the best possible support for the digital transformation of companies.
