  • Expanded SNP portfolio reinforces existing initiatives for selective SAP S/4HANA migration
  • Convista receives partner status “Preferred Partner for Financial Services”
  • Consulting, software and implementation for SAP customers from a single source

Convista customers can look forward to transforming their systems to SAP S/4HANA even more quickly and securely. The Cologne-based management consulting firm offers selective S/4HANA transformations by harnessing the digital data transformation platform CrystalBridge® and SNP’s selective migration approach BLUEFIELD™.

Customers will benefit from the partners’ comprehensive expertise and long-standing experience with SAP landscapes, enabling them to adapt their landscapes to new business models and new technological requirements. Building on the Datavard partnership concluded in 2020, the SNP portfolio will enhance future collaboration to include software-based and highly automated processes that enable fast, easy and secure transformations by providing solutions for analysis, planning and implementation as well as data management. Customers will receive consulting, software and implementation from a single source, therefore benefiting from highly reliable planning.

SNP software enables SAP customers to transform their business with minimal risk by introducing S/4HANA quickly and efficiently. Selective data migration using the BLUEFIELD approach makes it possible to transfer only relevant data to the cloud during a cloud move while also lowering cloud maintenance costs and leveraging best practices and optimizations – all in a single project. In addition, the Near-Zero Downtime approach considerably reduces the impact of system transformations on business operations by minimizing the downtime.

Convista offers all services and software components of the CrystalBridge platform through a reseller model. Consultants are trained by SNP and Convista to implement the software for customers and integrate it into their existing SAP system landscape using ABAP-based programming.

SNP has granted Convista the status “Preferred Partner for Financial Services,” which enables joint marketing with specially adapted offers for the financial services industry and makes the joint offering even more attractive.

“SNP’s products allow us to effectively serve our customers’ individual needs too. Especially in complex SAP landscapes, the SNP suite can be used to fulfill a wide range of requirements for data transformations, documentation, cloud moves or archiving in both ERP and BI environments. We are delighted to have been selected as SNP’s preferred partner for the financial services industry. And of course, we want to bring our expertise and experience to other industries as well.”

– Dr. Klaus Heimes, Managing Partner and Member of the Executive Board

The two SAP consulting companies have already carried out successful projects together in previous years. Gregor Stöckler, COO at SNP, is pleased with the continued partnership:

Our two teams very quickly laid the groundwork for a close and trusting working relationship, and as a partner with proven industry and technology expertise, we greatly appreciate Convista. We are looking forward to the upcoming joint projects: The expanded product portfolio creates completely new opportunities for us and especially for our customers.
