AKKA is a globally operating engineering and technology consulting group, working in sectors as varied as aerospace and defense, life sciences and manufacturing. Driven by double-digit growth, the group employs 21,000 people. To respond to strong growth and meet its ambitions, AKKA had to strengthen its back-office application platform and offer its consultants the digital tools of tomorrow.
AKKA wanted to standardize and automate the business processes in all of its subsidiaries by creating a core model, as well as upgrading the back-office functions by prioritizing analysis tasks over those of operational input. At the same time, the group wanted to deploy a solution allowing better integration of end-to-end project management, from time recording to invoicing.
To meet these objectives, the group launched the Aktion program for AKKA Towards Innovation. It includes the deployment of SAP S/4HANA Cloud and SAP Concur for expenses management.
The project, which involves a dedicated team at group level, includes a strong integration component since SAP S/4HANA Cloud must integrate with other components of the IT system dedicated to business intelligence, treasury or consolidation. For the optimal configuration of the solution, AKKA is supported by SAP partner, delaware.
