In May 2018, SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud was launched as the only end-to-end solution of its kind, delivering comprehensive cloud infrastructure and managed services for in-memory applications, database, and platform.
Wilmar International Limited, Asia’s leading agribusiness group and ranked amongst the largest listed companies by market capitalization on the Singapore Exchange, is collaborating with Wilmar Consultancy Services, SAP and CenturyLink in realizing its digital business vision. SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud is the chosen SAP innovation for this venture.
Khor Chern Chuen, Managing Director of SAP Singapore explained that the collaboration will lead Wilmar in charting their journey to cloud and at the same time focus on its core competencies.
“The deployment of HEC will help Wilmar to simplify business processes and gain real-time insights to transform into an intelligent enterprise for the global digital economy. HEC supports business needs by equipping organizations with mission-critical capabilities and is especially crucial for Wilmar as they wanted to focus on driving positive experiences for their customers.”
At the core of Wilmar’s company strategy is an integrated agribusiness model that encompasses the entire value chain of the agricultural commodity business, from cultivation, processing, merchandising to manufacturing of a wide range of agricultural products. It has over 500 manufacturing plants and an extensive distribution network covering China, India, Indonesia, and some 50 other countries and regions.
With a strong workforce of 90,000 and an expanding global footprint, the next natural strategy for a multinational company such as Wilmar is to adopt cloud computing in accelerating the company’ digital transformation towards an efficient, competitive and intelligent enterprise.
Francis Thangasamy, Vice President-Product Management of CenturyLink, Asia Pacific, said that CenturyLink, the second largest U.S. communications provider to global enterprise customers in more than 60 countries, is poised to help Wilmar become more agile in driving its digital business vision forward.
“As a premium supplier for SAP globally, CenturyLink enables customers in the Asia Pacific and beyond to achieve faster time to market for their transformation projects based on the SAP HANA platform. CenturyLink expands upon SAP’s vision of helping companies of all sizes and industries to run better by delivering comprehensive managed applications and infrastructure solutions.”
