JOIN THE BEST. Discover your path to digital transformation. Around the world, leading companies and organizations are using cutting-edge technologies to transform their business, drive innovation, and win in an increasingly digital economy. These businesses are a cut above their competitors in many ways, but what sets them apart the most are the technologies they use to support themselves, as well as their industries and customers. Platform technologies are helping these businesses reach their goals and discover new ones, regardless of the industry. Take a look at just some of the industries where leading companies are leaping ahead in innovative ways. Manufacturing In a high-pressure, competitive industry like manufacturing, companies must make use of every possible measure to keep costs low and efficiency high. Aligning its strategy with digital transformation processes, Bosch Group is focusing on innovative, service-based business models and the Internet of Things (IoT). To achieve this, Bosch deployed the SAP HANA in-memory database using SUSE® Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications on IBM Power. As a result, they streamlined SAP HANA operations and support, and maximized availability and business continuity of SAP HANA environments through innovative technology solutions. To produce and distribute tires and rubber auto parts to a wide range of customers all around the world, JK Tyre required efficient manufacturing processes and low-friction methods of coordinating with Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), as well as dealers and distribution networks. In the race to stay ahead of its competitors, JK Tyre decided to make the move to SAP HANA and SUSE Linux Enterprise for SAP Applications. JK Tyre boosts productivity by up to 30% and will now migrate to S/4HANA. Retail/Wholesales Companies in the retail/wholesale industry must offer great value and a seamless shopping experience.

Further, they need to give managers real-time insight into customer purchasing habits, profit margins and stock levels. CarrefourSA decided to refresh its entire enterprise application landscape, introducing an integrated suite of SAP ERP solutions, together with SAP Business Warehouse (BW) powered by SAP HANA for ultra-fast analytics and reporting. SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications provides a reliable platform to support constantly growing operations at CarrefourSA and delivers consistently high levels of performance for even the most demanding SAP workloads. As a major player in the wholesale business, Galexis wants to offer digital, real-time services to complement its logistics operations, as well as Alloga’s pre-wholesale operations. Galexis decided to implement SAP S/4HANA powered by SAP HANA running on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications. Galexis improved business continuity with 50% faster, fully automated failover process. High Tech Innovation also happens at the intersection of industries. Hosting provider FIS-ASP wanted to seize new business opportunities and broaden its service offering to address the evolving requirements of its customers, while also increasing efficiency. Previously, when FIS-ASP was managing systems manually, it typically took between 40 and 60 man-days to set up complex landscapes for customers, such as those featuring SAP S/4HANA applications, SAP Fiori, SAP Hybris and SAP Business Warehouse. By taking advantage of SUSE OpenStack Cloud, FISASP can now complete the same kinds of deployments in just five or ten days. Can you win with a digital platform? Companies across industries are using platform technologies to thrive in their industries – or transcend beyond their boundaries. Find more success stories on
