The deal is one of several new, exciting business transformation projects for SAP
Moderna will implement SAP Business Process Intelligence (BPI) to assess, monitor, and improve its business processes.
After the pharmaceutical and biotechnology giant enjoyed success with its COVID-19 vaccine, the company expanded massively. As such, Moderna aims to reimagine how it operates to facilitate this growth.
SAP BPI is central to its strategy, offering visibility into inefficiencies to improve business performance at scale. It also highlights potential risks and improvement opportunities through process mining.
Moderna may also standardize its workflows – built from process maps and data – and roll these out across its global operations.
Other companies that have already turned to SAP BPI this year include Nippon Telegraph, Telephone Corporation, and Telus Communications, amongst many others.
Discussing the rise of the technology, Christian Klein, CEO of SAP, stated on an earnings call:
Our business process intelligence offering, with cloud revenue, is almost doubling year-over-year and has now fully integrated SAP Signavio.
Such integrations will likely prove helpful for Moderna, as the company has already implemented many SAP solutions to support its vaccine deliveries.
An excellent example is the SAP Cloud Platform on which its digital network is built. Harnessing this technology, trading partners may exchange traceability and serialization data. This data may now funnel into the SAP Business Process Intelligence system to enhance business insights.
Also, these solutions may integrate with the broader Moderna ecosystem – which includes SAP ERP and supply chain management software – empowering the company with a holistic view of its end-to-end business processes.
With such an array of software, SAP has kickstarted many more exciting partnerships since the turn of the year. Indeed, Microsoft, Accenture, and Wipro now innovate through the SAP RISE platform – its enterprise resource planning solution.
Commenting on the Microsoft deal, Klein added:
This quarter, Microsoft announced it would become the first public cloud provider to adopt RISE with SAP internally utilizing SAP S/4HANA to transform its own SAP-ERP deployment. This will enable Microsoft to deploy new technologies faster and establish best practices that benefit our joint customers in the market.
These exciting Q1 announcements follow SAP earning “leader” status in the December 2021 Gartner Magic Quadrant for cloud database management systems.
