Panaya, the pioneer in the Change Intelligence and Test Management for packaged applications, today announced signing a strategic agreement with Inetum, European leader in digital services and solutions. The collaboration will provide Inetum’s customers with streamlined, risk-free, and tailored migration to the latest version of the SAP ERP, S/4HANA.
The agreement is particularly well timed, as the demand for S/4HANA migrations is expected to rise rapidly with the vendor’s impending end-of-support for previous solutions of the enterprise resource planning software. Inetum, with its extensive experience managing such projects, will leverage Panaya’s unique SaaS-based Change Intelligence technology to save their customers time and resources, while reducing business continuity risks.
Panaya’s Change Intelligence platform, including extensive automation and granular analysis, will be integral to Inetum’s SAP S/4HANA conversion strategy. Therefore, Panaya’s rich solutions portfolio will become one of the key pieces in the Inetum’s conversion to SAP S/4HANA strategy, together with its own GO2S4 package, certified by SAP, and the ‘Inetum makes your SAP systems run’ initiative, which includes the ‘Move to SAP S/4HANA’, outsourcing operations and infrastructure management services both in on-prem and in any cloud flavor.
“We decided to go with Panaya after having tested their tools for SAP S/4HANA migration across the entire process cycle for a range of projects,” explained David Bayón, SAP Strategic Business Development Director at Inetum in Spain. “We achieved very good results across the board, both in terms of efficiency and customer satisfaction.”
The latest collaboration between Panaya and Inetum is not their first. The companies have been working together since June 2019 to minimize risk and the use of resources in pre-deployment functionality testing with the test platform, Test Dynamix. The developing relationship has expanded Panaya’s European footprint, as well, with access to Inetum’s customer base and extensive commercial network.
Pablo Iglesias, Director Sales of Panaya Spain, called the alliance “a perfect fit,” saying, “Inetum is an innovative distributor, providing great added value, deep knowledge and extensive experience in SAP solutions.”
Inetum, which has been a SAP Gold Partner for more than 25 years, is “committed to the collaboration,” according to Ignacio Artiaga, Director of the SAP Business Line for Spain and LATAM at Inetum, “because it improves our value offer and is an important step in being prepared to accompany all our clients in their digitization processes, guaranteeing they are able to successfully make the transition to SAP S/4HANA within established deadlines.”
Shabi Levi, Director of Channels and Alliances at Panaya, commented, “We are delighted to partner with Inetum to provide secure and reliable SAP S/4HANA migration. The S/4Convert solution makes it possible to design migration projects tailored to each customer’s needs and at a speed previously unattainable, while drastically minimizing go-Live risks.”
