Virtustream, the enterprise-class cloud company and a Dell Technologies Business, will assist the FMC Corporation to migrate and manage its mission critical, global suite of SAP applications.
FMC provides solutions to growers around the world with a portfolio of proprietary crop protection products and a robust pipeline fueled by innovative discovery and development capabilities in crop protection, plant health and professional pest and turf maintenance solutions.
FMC turned to Virtustream to complete a multi-year effort to consolidate its infrastructure and migrate its SAP applications to a new S/4HANA environment on Virtustream Enterprise Cloud.
Due to multiple growth events including the acquisition of DuPont’s Crop Protection business, FMC is working with Virtustream to design a solution that will integrate newly acquired IT assets into its core business and consolidate multiple ERP systems.
FMC is also leveraging Virtustream’s Managed Services, which brings deep SAP expertise into each stage of their migration journey from planning to integration to optimization, and from the infrastructure through to application management level.
“We selected Virtustream because of the company’s extensive experience migrating and managing global enterprise-scale workloads in the cloud. It was also important for us to find a cloud partner who could keep up with our rapid project timeline, and who would work with us every step of the way to ensure our success,” said Dave Kotch, FMC Chief Information Officer. “Our existing SAP applications were highly customized over the last 20 years, which created a complex environment, so we were looking for a partner capable of more than just a migration.”
As a result of transforming its IT operations, migrating mission critical applications to the cloud and implementing a new SAP S/4HANA environment, FMC expects to realize significant cost and time savings.
