The journey of any enterprise includes the transformation of processes related to presales, sales, procurement, service, production, quality, maintenance, warehousing, and finance operations, adhering to the principles of optimization and faster implementation. The goal is to create a uniform user experience, branching and connecting each enterprise function with minimal transformation effort. With a traditional approach, achieving this is not easy. Some of the other hurdles organizations face are:

  • Lack of localization know-how, especially with respects to  legal and fiscal compliance 

  • Low transparency across business functions

  • Legacy SAP business processes

  • Geo-specific, fragmented and heavily customized legacy SAP ERP systems

  • A complex integration landscape across in-house and cloud technologies

  • Inability to scale with business growth

Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) PreCast is an integrated business solution certified by SAP as a Qualified Partner Packaged solution (QPPS), leveraging SAP’s market leading software, best practices and innovations.

With 50+ predefined alerts and 25+ predefined reports on cloud usage, customers will experience enhanced observability of their business-critical ERP applications, with benefits such as:

  • Higher application availability

  • Is ready to scale through Google Cloud Partner Engagement, providing optimized business process and accelerated innovation

TCS PreCast integrates well with Google Cloud products such as BigQuery, Anthos, Apigee and Google Cloud Cortex Framework, providing customers with an AI-driven intelligent enterprise. Google Cloud Cortex Framework offers pre-configured SAP content for scenario-driven, data-driven, cloud-native reference architectures enabling faster time to market. These services enable our customers to achieve “cloudification” of the ERP digital core and superior business outcomes, to gain resilience, a better customer experience and the flexibility of an open, scalable, and democratized ecosystem.

A Netherlands-based global pipe manufacturer, Wavin IT, and a Canadaian-based leading garments company were some of the many clients who were grappling with the above challenges to make the first move towards SAP S4HANA landscape transformation to support their innovation and growth.

Both of these customers can operate more efficiently and effectively. They’re able to make better decisions, improve their customer service and have now successfully realized their growth strategies by partnering with TCS SAP on Google Cloud and implementing PreCast.
