The Indian pharmaceutical company Lupin is migrating its ERP system to SAP S/4HANA in HPE’s Greenlake cloud. Data will continue to be stored on-premises. […]
“At Lupin, our priority was to move to a highly scalable and flexible IT infrastructure to handle the company’s variable requirements and support new projects and initiatives without compromising data security,” says Sreeji Gopinathan, CIO at Lupin. For this, the company has chosen Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) as a partner.
The goal was to be able to manage Lupin’s applications from a single platform. The pharmaceutical company wants to digitize more applications, improve scalability, reduce the risk of security breaches and avoid critical data loss.
HPE has built an end-to-end solution for the pharmaceutical company based on its cloud service Greenlake. “With this solution, we keep our business-critical data and technologies in our own data centers and have a solution that offers the highest level of availability and security, both of which are crucial for our business,” said Gopinathan, IT Chief.
In order to successfully convert the existing ERP system SAP ECC to S/4 HANA, a pay-per-use model with minimal upfront investments was used. The platform offers a dashboard with which the daily resource consumption can be monitored and planned. IT spending is transparent to improve budget planning and forecasting. Data will continue to be stored on-premises to ensure compliance and legal requirements are met.
The solution is delivered as a cloud service via HPE Greenlake and uses HPE Superdome Flex for in-memory processing and business-critical functions. This is intended to process SAP S/4 HANA workloads more efficiently. Other components such as HPE Primera and HPE Service Guard are designed to make applications and data more accessible. In addition, Lupin uses managed services from the provider to monitor and operate the SAP infrastructure and applications.
Lupin is headquartered in Mumbai. The company operates 15 production facilities and seven research centers worldwide and employs around 20,000 people. In 2021, the company generated about $ 2 billion in sales.
