How did we
succeed with Izeltaş?

The project which started with a kick-off meeting on August 12, 2020 was pursued by Project Analysis Studies. Considering the Best Business Processes, adaptations were made on the SAP S/4 HANA Platform according to İZELTAŞ’s business processes and industry needs.

Controls were provided and relevant improvements were made in terms of the SAP-certified MBIS DMP (Discrete Manufacturing Package) solution, business processes, industry-specific requirements, and integrations between SAP and other 3rd party software solutions.

During the project, processes were followed through the Project Management Platform 'Jira'.

The project, which required both remote and on-site work during the pandemic, was brought went live as of June 1, 2021. It was a result of devoted and collaborative work of all teams and made available to users via SAP S/4HANA Fiori screens.

The process continued without any interruption in terms of business objectives during and after the SAP S/4HANA transition.

After a month of live migration support, the project was closed. Today, support continues to be provided by the MBIS Support Unit.


The following gains were achieved for İZELTAŞ with our successful project:
