SAP have announced Purdue University’s successful implementation of SAP’s next-generation enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution, SAP S/4HANA, to re-engineer business processes with embedded analytics on an intelligent platform to drive efficiency and savings.

“The TransformPurdue project was an ambitious undertaking that required the right software and implementation partners for us to be successful,” said Victoria Farnsworth, Purdue University executive director of IT Enterprise. “Moving to SAP S/4HANA allowed us to modernise our business processes, resulting in year-over-year cost savings while leveraging our SAP investment. Couple this with EPI-USE’s extensive reputation for transforming how higher education does business, and we had a winning combination. We look forward to our continued partnerships and supporting the university’s core mission to be a leading educator and expand knowledge sharing globally.”

As universities and colleges face challenging economic conditions and increasing student expectations, return on investment is a driving factor in business decisions. As a result, institutions must review all options to drive efficiency and improve the cost side of the balance sheet.

Built on SAP S/4HANA, Purdue University’s transformation into an Intelligent Enterprise gives the organisation access to:

  • Clear visibility of end-to-end business process flows spanning multiple organisations
  • New metric-based development of processes to ensure improved process effectiveness
  • Process prioritisation based on magnitude and project impact

The university realised improved quality, productivity and cycle times with a redesign of core business processes, such as management and decision support structures, coordination of people and organisations, balanced loads of information technology, and improved adherence to policies and regulations.
