Watch the replay of one of the 5 Parallel Deep Dive sessions, presented by our Customers.
Choose from the following sessions:

Session 1: Werminval - Vamos a la HANA
In order to stay competitive and meet all customer (increased) demands, Werminval needed a platform that enabled them to plan their resources efficiently and act swiftly in relation to their new assignments. The conversion to SAP S/4HANA was a logical next step to take.
Most companies think the transition to SAP S/4HANA is only meant for those investing in the latest technology, with time and money to spend on state-of-the-art features.  The Werminval case proves them wrong! The company decided to make the move to SAP S/4HANA in order to be futureproof and to guarantee their growth capabilities without implementing all options at once.  Less than 6 months were needed to perform the conversion!

Do you want to move forward and unlock your company’s growth potential in a short period of time? Learn more about how Werminval experienced the conversion, their lessons learned and future plans.
