Digital Transformation for the Chemical Industry with SAP S/4HANA powered by Approyo


To transform chemical companies prioritize new business models and processes. The chemical world as we know it is experiencing a revolution on both the supply and demand sides of the value chain. We are experiencing a digital revolution from the technology advances of hyperconnectivity, supercomputing, cloud computing, smart technology, blockchain, and cybersecurity. We see a strong adoption of cloud solutions already, in particular for nonstrategic processes like HR or procurement, however, cybersecurity remains an important aspect for the asset-and operations-intensive chemical industry.

This revolution will transform the chemical industry away from the traditional, vertically integrated business models to an industry where access to information will overtake access to raw materials and resources as the competitive differentiator. These same disruptive technologies can also be used to reach new levels of safety, cost control, and agility in a competitive environment, while providing a bridge to success in the new, diversified, and outcome-focused economy. To succeed, chemical companies will need to put in place a coherent digital vision with clearly articulated strategies. In particular, they will need to address emerging business models such as driving outcome-based engagements and flexible sourcing of resources through external talent networks. To execute on this, firms will not only need to reengineer their business processes, but they will also have to evaluate if they have the right technology platform that can deliver on that vision.

Priority 1: Deliver customer outcomes, not products Rethinking the value chain from the customer perspective Priority 2: Simplify to shrink cycle time Using the IoT to streamline operations and maximize asset performance Priority 3: Compete as an ecosystem Integrating with both customer and supplier supply chains to unlock superior value Priority 4: Increase market driven strategic agility Adjusting strategy and portfolio dynamically in response to market opportunities and needs
