Advanced Petrochemical Company Achieves Mission Critical SAP Transformation at No Risk

1 November 2023

Advanced Petrochemical Company and Cloud4C have completed a mission-critical cloud transformation exercise of the company’s core SAP landscape, as part of the TAQADUM initiative. This involves a risk-proof migration of the SAP ECC core to cloud followed by S/4HANA conversion. The initiative will lay a solid foundation for the company’s long-term digitalization strategy and innovation goals, as part of the TAQADUM initiative.

Advanced Petrochemical Company, a leading player in the MENA petrochemicals industry, produces derivatives used in various everyday items, ranging from food packaging to automotive components and construction materials. Such delivery at scale necessitates a robust Document Management System (DMS) and strong analytics capabilities to optimize productions. Ensuring highly available SAP core is hence crucial, given their significant production volume and unique business requirements.

Cloud4C's experts played a pivotal role in migrating Advanced Petrochemical Company's SAP ECC environment to the cloud. The migration preceded the conversion to SAP S/4HANA, fully leveraging the benefits of cloud-native ecosystems. The exercise enhanced operational efficiency while ensuring uninterrupted business continuity in a single SLA.

Cloud4C was recognized by Advanced Petrochemical Company for its ‘outstanding contribution to the project’s success. Ram Sajja, Chief Technology Officer of Cloud4C, accepted this prestigious accolade on behalf of Cloud4C.
