The SAP Strategy Management (SSM) application helps senior executives and line-of-business managers drive execution of the business planning process by linking strategic plans to initiatives, performance measures and people. Simon Yates from ABC Analytics says that, ultimately, you gain greater visibility into and control over the factors that affect your organisation’s performance, which leads to more agile execution.

ABC Analytics (formally ABCE Smith) are a specialist Australian SAP partner which solely focuses on SAP’s Strategy Management solution. ABC Analytics have been involved in four major roll outs of SSM to Melbourne and Sydney Water, Origin LNG and Latrobe University. Both founding partners Les Smith and Simon Yates have a long history in the SAP Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) space throughout Australia and New Zealand. According to Smith and Yates, New Zealand has demand for the solution and they have identified possibilities in the New Zealand market for the SSM solution.

“With the solution doing well in Australia, we began looking at the New Zealand market to see whether there was a need for companies across the ditch to implement the SSM solution. Through our networks and industry knowledge we can see that a number of organisations should be looking to the solution to enhance performance.”

With ABC Analytics’ focus being in Australia, they went in search of a successful SAP partner in New Zealand.

Soltius is New Zealand’s leading and most trusted SAP partner. With more than 120 consultants and offices in Auckland and Wellington, Soltius is an SAP gold partner delivering the full breadth of SAP services and solutions to more than 80 large enterprises and mid-size companies.  With these credentials, ABC Analytics knew Soltius was the right choice to sell, deliver and support the potential New Zealand SSM client base.

The New Year will see ABC Analytics and Soltius presenting opportunities for New Zealand businesses to learn about the SSM solution through a series of seminars across the country.
