Performance optimization and upgrade of SAP Business Planning and Consolidation at IDEXX Laboratories
Since 2011, IDEXX Laboratories has utilized the SAP Business Planning and Consolidation solution to help streamline critical financial planning processes across the organization. However, after further testing and feedback from its users on processing time, it was found that the tool’s full potential was not being realized. By partnering with TruQua, IDEXX was able to significantly optimize the performance of its SAP Business Planning and Consolidation system with an upgrade to version 10.1.
Industry: Healthcare/Diagnostic Services
Solution: SAP BPC 10.1
Despite having SAP Business Planning and Consolidation meet the company’s functional and business requirements, the solution was experiencing less than ideal performance, which in turn led to a slower user adoption rate. As the company set out to migrate to SAP BPC SP011, it was critical that IDEXX identify and remedy the root causes leading to its performance bottlenecks.
TruQua assisted IDEXX in the deployment of automated performance testing during an upgrade to SAP BPC 10.1. A load runner training session was also held with IT and Business analysts to help alleviate performance issues moving forward.
Since the project’s inception, IDEXX’s BPC system has achieved greater usability, transparency, and a reduced TCO, including:
- A faster month-end closing process
- Performance boosts in reporting and data accuracy
- A reduction in cycle times for budgeting, forecasting, and consolidating actuals
