Ocean Network Express (ONE) is looking to improve its operational efficiency by running its mission critical SAP systems on Google Cloud, which it hopes will unlock business insights and accelerate data leveraging processes.

In a statement, ONE said it has migrated to an SAP S/4HANA enterprise resource planning (ERP) finance software hosted on Google Cloud.

It said that shifting from its on premise infrastructure to the public cloud will give it the ability to scale its ERP systems up and down to meet changes in customer demands and data volumes.

ONE is also integrating its SAP system with Google Cloud’s data analytics solutions to gain a unified and real-time view of data across its global organisation and allow it to better predict demand in the supply chain and make business decisions faster.

Additionally, plans to modernise its legacy data environment with a data lake using BigQuery are also underway and are expected to be completed by Q3 2021.

This will enable ONE to consolidate and analyse data from its SAP ERP and other data sources to generate even more business value from its data and advance ONE’s competitive advantage in the market.

Kosuke Wada, Senior Vice-President, ONE, said, “Modernising our legacy infrastructure requires a strategic rethink of the way internal data is captured and processed at all levels of the company.

“By accelerating the use of data analytics to enhance operational efficiencies and predict, ONE can better meet changes in customer demands and data volumes and make business decisions faster.

“Our move to Google Cloud is a realization of a centralized and intelligent system that allows us to act on trusted and up-to-date information to shape our data cloud strategy.”
