With two of the continent’s most ambitious industrial projects underway, Nigeria’s Dangote Group has achieved the seemingly-impossible with an SAP-led digital transformation that was completed in record time.
“We want our Refinery to be not just the largest single train Refinery in the world but also the most modern and smart Refinery with the latest state-of-the-art technologies like SAP S4HANA 1909,” says Mr.Devakumar Edwin, Group Executive Director, Dangote Group.
According to Ramakrishna Potluri, Head – IT & Business Applications (Refinery), the Dangote Refinery and Fertiliser strategic business units upgraded their SAP landscape to SAP S/4HANA 1909 in mere six days.
“The upgrade affected all three systems landscapes – development, quality assurance and production environments – and required excellent collaboration between the Dangote internal SAP Centre of Excellence team and the SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud teams.
Despite being spread across four continents and three time zones, the project teams managed to work round the clock to achieve a full upgrade within six business days.
The upgrade is important for our Oil & Gas businesses to enable with SAP’s latest IS-Oil industry solution”.
