As the global leader in chemical and ingredients distribution, Brenntag leverages data whenever possible. With this data, Brenntag can make the best possible business decisions and enable partners and customers to interact directly and intelligently with Brenntag’s systems. However, the increasing demand for new innovative processes and applications, along with a historically grown IT landscape, limited these capabilities. To overcome the current limitation, Brenntag performed a proof of concept for an innovative digital integration hub based on SAP HANA Cloud as a cornerstone of their ambitious infrastructure modernization.
Brenntag Performs Successful Digital Integration Hub Proof of Concept
The idea was to implement SAP HANA Cloud acting as a harmonized gateway for different ERP systems, as well as the newly implemented S/4HANA, towards Brenntag’s customer portal, “Brenntag Connect.” SAP HANA Cloud, a fully managed cloud-native database platform, brings together Brenntag’s data solutions with speed and consistency. This should make future rollouts a quick and agile process. All this would help Brenntag’s customers interact with Brenntag digitally, expanding existing relationships and enabling new ones.
SAP HANA Cloud gave us the power to better connect with our customers and suppliers. Thanks to the flexible storage options, we can offer improved interaction capabilities to deliver outstanding services.Dr. Tobias Carstensen, Director Application Management EMEA
