Collaboration with SAP

»After almost 4 years of collaboration, we are convinced that partnering with the ITWM was the best thing SAP could do to streamline the development process of SAP S/4HANA for advanced variant configuration.«. We are very pleased with these words from the SAP blog.

Since 2015, we have been developing a new, state-of-the-art configuration engine for the SAP database S/4HANA together with experts from SAP. Our part in the project consisted primarily of developing algorithms for processing a wide variety of variant configurations.
