Structuring the complex processes with the right ERP system

The introduction of an ERP system in the public sector is traditionally considered a lengthy undertaking with many stakeholders and specific requirements. But the example of the Humboldt Forum Foundation (SHF) shows that the use of cloud and SaaS solutions is possible. Together with ICB, they made a conscious decision to break new ground in the cloud and demonstrate that the public sector is also "cloud-ready".

The right choice of cloud ERP system

Breaking down silo structures with a cloud ERP system

As a consequence of its recent and rapid growth, during which the IT was repeatedly expanded and adapted, SHF had a fragmented system landscape in which the various areas had previously been operated separately from one another. The result was process and information silos that made it unnecessarily difficult to combine all relevant data and thus fulfill basic reporting obligations. Due to this high level of complexity, it quickly became clear that connecting these legacy systems to a new ERP would very quickly reach its limits.

ERP implementation in record time & under budget

In a preceding conceptual design phase, the target processes and the target architecture, all relevant data and the project data were compiled. The target architecture was to integrate all processes "end-to-end" in order to lay the foundation for comprehensive standardization and further automation. This was followed by the preparation of the specifications and the execution of an EU-wide invitation to tender, as a result of which ICB issued a recommendation for the award of contract. After the tender, the SaaS solution "Microsoft Dynamics Business Central" was chosen.

The smooth ERP implementation as a success factor

"The integration of all relevant finance, procurement and controlling processes into a cloud ERP was a major challenge. With a view to future efficiency increases, we are convinced that we have taken the right path together with ICB."
- Irene Knava, Head of Organizational Development and Quality Management at SHF
