While ITL gears up for spectacular growth, it was time to accelerate its operational processes further. For a faster access to information and to turn information into actionable insights; ITL decided to upgrade its SAP ERP to the SAP HANA in-memory database using the state of the art architecture of IBM Power Systems running on SUSE Linux operating system. The technical solution designing was carried out with a well-researched and studied technical design that took all the mission critical applications on to the virtualized environment of the IBM Power Machines.
The SAP ERP powered by SAP HANA on IBM Power Systems deployment feeds into a broader digital transformation being carried out at ITL. This voyage of digital transformation continued on with the adoption of SAP FIORI desktop and mobile applications; SAP Business Warehouse setting a new layer of information and insights; and the introduction of the Digital Dashboards giving insights of KPIs on dimensions that were considered impossible before.
The multi-tiered projects of HANA server landscape, FIORI & BI Implementation were carried out to perfection by the following IT team members:
Atif Saqlain - SAP Technical Lead - Credits for the HANA Infrastructure Solution Design & Architecture Setup
Talha Ahmed - SAP SCM Lead - Credits for SAP Business Warehouse and Business Intelligence Reporting

Ali Warsi - SAP SCM Executive - Credits for SAP FIORI & SAP BW
