Bidco migrates to SAP HANA database to boost efficiency.


In a bid to further improve delivery of services to its customers, Bidco Africa has now migrated to the SAP HANA Database, a platform that will help improve the firm’s delivery of services to its customers.

This system will enable them make accurate business decisions quickly and at scale thus speed up their operational processes to improve the delivery of products to customers.
SAP HANA is a product of SAP, a market leader in enterprise application software. HANA is a business data platform that processes transactions.

“As our business grows and expands, our data has grown. With the world on the cusp of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, we wanted to migrate our data to an in-memory computing platform that could seamlessly integrate with legacy and non-legacy systems to enable us to make accurate business decisions quickly and at scale. We had started using SAP technologies in 2010 and felt it was the right time to make the shift to the SAP HANA Platform,” the Chief Information Officer at Bidco Africa Alkane Patel explains.

Patel adds that they needed to provide real-time visibility over critical business and operational data, regardless of geographic location.

“Whether for our operations in Kenya, Uganda or Madagascar, we needed to stay connected to on-the-ground data and get an accurate view over the total business at any point in time. SAP HANA has real-time capabilities that will enable us to run our largest reports on-demand, while our overall data size has been reduced three-fold, greatly reducing backup times. Vitally, we now have complete visibility over the market dynamics impacting our various operations, and can make informed business decisions based on accurate, real-time information.”

According to the company’s Project Manager Santosh Diwakar, they now have the platform in place to start supporting key operational processes with next-generation technologies.
