Shaping the future of businesses Innovative software solutions by SNP Group More than 20 years ago, Dr. Andreas Schneider-Neureither founded SchneiderNeureither & Partner AG (SNP) in Heidelberg – with a clear goal in sight. The company, which has been operating as a Societas Europaea (SE) since 2017, is now a household name in the field of IT transformations and is well on its way to setting international standards with its smart software solutions and comprehensive service offering for software-based data transformations. At the core of SNP’s business model sits a high-performance software portfolio that supports companies to implement even the most complex business management and technological changes in their business applications and to use new technologies. Constant change requires reliable partners Faced with globalisation, digitisation and Industry 4.0, companies are constantly changing. More businesses are acquired or sold and in this context, tech infrastructures and business processes need to be restructured. Plus, a lot of organisations have simply realised the necessity for investing in revamping existing and out-ofdate IT structures. To keep up with techno66 | Issue 62 | May 2018
logical changes and the rapidly advancing networking and digitisation processes, these measures are nowadays not only decisive factors for remaining competitive but, in fact, essential for survival. As each IT systems change has an immediate effect on business processes, data transformations are highly critical operations and, as early as in the planning phase, require technology tools that guarantee a thorough analysis of the status quo to prevent mistakes in the subsequent execution of the project. In order to also eliminate mistakes during the implementation phase, SNP works with highly automated processes. The company’s latest software product ‘CrystalBridge’ combines
all SNP software products in one homogeneous software platform, closing the gap between analysis and implementation for its clients. CrystalBridge works as a kind of navigation bridge that enables companies to visualise and simulate changes in IT systems and their effects prior to implementing them. A high degree of automatisation creates transparency and minimises risk, as well as reduces the cost of these complex projects – and means that businesses are ready for the future. About SNP SNP Group is headquartered in Heidelberg with 1,350 employees worldwide. In the financial year 2017, it achieved a turnover of 122,3 million euros. The company’s clients are globally operating groups in all industry sectors. SNP was founded in 1994. It went public in 2000 and since 2014, has been listed in Frankfurt Stock Exchange’s Prime Standard (ISIN DE0007203705). Since 2017, the company has been operating as a Societas Europaea (SE).
