“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.”

— Cindy Blondeel, SAP Project Manager, Aircelle
