Bacardi Brings in the SAPLSMW Community

Jimbo's picture

Bacardi in MiamiThe advice, standards and software developed by the SAPLSMW community are now helping the data conversion team at Bacardi load data into their SAP system. Currently the teams are extracting, transforming and loading in preparation for user acceptance testing. The schedule is very tight and the teams are working very hard to stay on track with a lot of success. The project has a scheduled Go-Live in October.

The project has a very ambitious goal of migrating data from JD Edwards, RENCS and other systems in five international market regions to SAP. The volume of the data is small, but the quality is poor because the legacy systems performed little or no validation. The transformation team is doing its best to prepare SAP-ready load files, but a long road lies ahead for everybody on the project.
