Britehouse has partnered with SAP to become the largest adopter of SAP S/4 HANA Public Cloud in Africa, implementing the new ERP suite across its global applications business, with a full staff complement of 1 500.

Having heavily invested in SAP S/4 HANA Public Cloud in their global application business, Britehouse will have firsthand experience with migrating any business over to SAP S/4 HANA Public Cloud solutions.

Paolo Masselli, Britehouse CEO, comments: “As a global strategic partner to SAP, Britehouse is aligned with SAP to be at the cutting edge of hybrid systems, using public cloud and on-premise software solutions. The implementation of SAP S/4 HANA Public Cloud inside our own business has enabled us to build up internal skills and expertise, and the first reference site in Africa, which allows our customers to benefit from the support required for agile innovation.”

Christo Pieters, Britehouse group executive, adds: “One of the prerequisites for our Lighthouse Partnership was that we go live with SAP S4/HANA Public Cloud within our own business and we are very proud to be the first SAP partner to do so.”

The new SAP S/4 HANA Public Cloud offering includes contextual analytics, digital transformation capabilities, machine learning, and the SAP Fiori user experience. As a full digital solution, SAP S/4 HANA Public Cloud now enables companies to run a live business, act on realtime insights, enjoy scalability, optimise management according to best practices, and operate in a secure environment.

These features of SAP S/4 HANA Public Cloud are made possible through the new design of in-memory accessibility and the system’s ability to act as a digital core.
