Lives literally ride on Aircelle; the 3,500-employee French company is one of the world's leading developers and manufacturers of airplane parts. To replace legacy systems from its seven locations in France, England, and Morocco with a single new SAP system, it needed to safeguard its business and technical data while still remaining on a tight timeline.

Challenges

  • Migrate critical static and dynamic data to a new and not yet stabilized SAP system
  • Extract, transform, and load data from seven functional domains into SAP
  • Meet an aggressive eight-month deadline for product completion
In every migration to SAP, there are two crucial dimensions: controlling changes, a key element for adoption by users, and the migration of legacy data, which determines the overall success of the project. The power and flexibility of Informatica PowerCenter allowed us to adhere to our schedule during migration to an SAP system not yet stabilized.
