Leading the Wave of Innovation for RISE with SAP with Proven Excellence

In 2020, Managecore achieved a milestone as its customer, GCP Applied Technologies (GCPAT), marked one of the earliest live RISE with SAP implementations on Google Cloud in North America. ManagecoreiQ+ on RISE with SAP offers customers the advantage of intelligent SAP collaborative support, leveraging the company’s expertise as a certified SAP Partner.

GCPAT worked closely with Managecore to define its needs, preferences, and overall roadmap for migrating its SAP applications from the on-prem data center to RISE with SAP on Google Cloud. Managecore brought the knowledge and expertise to guide the process quickly and efficiently.

“Managecore felt like the perfect fit for us, and their approach made this big set of goals we had in mind achievable. We added a lot of layers to this project, such as a HANA upgrade and other value-added efforts, while not having any internal experience with moving from on-prem to the cloud. Managecore, combined with RISE and SAP, put us on the right path.” – Robyn McCall, CIO of GCP Applied Technologies.

As part of its SAP workload migration, GCPAT also standardized all of its nonSAP workloads from a legacy cloud provider to Google Cloud. In all, GCPAT successfully exited its on-prem data center and moved all SAP and other IT systems to Google Cloud in only six months.

“The migration to the Cloud immediately improved our business agility. We can now instantly increase CPU, storage capacity, or memory for any workload to respond to changing needs,” says Kishor Barde, Senior Information Technology Leader at GCPAT. “We have a lot more visibility across the environment through system monitoring tools.”

When the migration project commenced, GCPAT had more than 100 applications of varying sizes and on different platforms. The successful completion of this migration to the Cloud puts it in a position to consolidate and rationalize this footprint through business transformation with S/4HANA. This will translate to more standardized, streamlined processes as well as savings from having to manage fewer applications powering the business.

In the future, GCPAT plans to go all-in with S/4HANA while continuing to transform its business to be more flexible, scalable, and efficient.
