To keep ahead of the rapidly shifting retail marketplace, Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) launched a transformation initiative designed to modernize the company’s core business processes to give employees better access to data in real-time at all levels of the organization. The initiative began as a program to replace its custom legacy ERP system with SAP S/4HANA at its 9,000 stores worldwide but soon turned into a full-scale transformation of WBA’s business.

SAP S/4HANA, which is hosted on Microsoft Azure to furnish the capacity to scale quickly, has streamlined processes, analytics, and decision-making for WBA. It is providing greater accuracy and confidence in the data because of more rigorous controls, governance, and training, explains Mark Slater, VP, Platform Information Officer, Business Services, WBA.

The company focused its initial SAP S/4HANA implementation on finance, retail, supply, and inventory management. Automating processes and improving visibility into better data are key benefits of the transformation program.
