The digital consulting company Valantic is expanding its expertise in the high-volume SAP market. By merging with the Spanish SAP consulting and implementation specialist Saptools, Valantic is reaching for pole position in the European consulting market for Digital Supply Chain (IBP, DMC, PPDS, MII) and S/4 Hana. Saptools' extensive customer portfolio includes blue-chip customers from the food and beverage industry, the oil and gas sector, the chemical and pharmaceutical industry and the other consumer goods segment. Saptools currently employs over 100 people and has offices in Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia and Bilbao.

Saptools has developed a strong focus on Advanced Planning with Integrated Business Planning (IBP) and combines it with PP/DS (Production Planning and Detailed Scheduling) as well as Manufacturing Execution Optimization with DMC (Digital Manufacturing Cloud) or MII (Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence). The migration of many enterprise customers from the old ERP legacy system to S/4 Hana or the S/4 Hana Cloud has also established itself as a strong line of business. José Verdú, founder and CEO of Saptools, says: "We believe that with Valantic we have found a like-minded partner in our fields and the leverage that will make us the European market leader together."

Work on SAP Basis is crucial for successful S/4 conversion. This gives the so-called Competence Center strategic importance among SAP's existing customers. Regardless of the operating model of an S/4 Hana, topics such as automation, monitoring, security, application lifecycle management, and data management are the basis for the operative S/4 operation. For the second time already, E3 Magazine is hosting a summit in Salzburg for the SAP community to get comprehensive information on all aspects of S/4 Hana groundwork. With an exhibition, expert presentations, and plenty to talk about, we again expect numerous existing customers, partners, and experts in Salzburg. E3 Magazine invites you to Salzburg for learning and exchange of ideas on June 5 and 6, 2024.
