SNP Schneider-Neureither & Partner, a provider of software for digital transformation, and IBM Consulting, an IT consulting firm, announce the establishment of a joint global Center of Excellence (CoE) for hybrid S/4 Hana migrations.

The core of the collaboration is the Rapid Move program, with which IBM supports its customers in their S/4 Hana transformations. The program is based on the SNP software platform CrystalBridge and addresses the growing market of hybrid S/4 Hana migrations. With the new CoE, IBM and SNP are creating an efficient and scalable delivery engine with global reach. As part of the existing partnership and with IBM Rapid Move, more than 100 companies have already moved to S/4 Hana. The launch was celebrated at the IBM Innovation Center for SAP Solutions.  

"It's great what has already been achieved through this partnership and we look forward to what's to come."
