Salzgitter, SAP cooperate on digitising energy transition

Software forge SAP and Salzgitter are intensifying their long-standing business relationship to jointly expedite the digital transformation for climate-friendly steel production at the German steelmaker.

The company will be working even more closely with SAP from now on to achieve the digital transformation of its processes, it tells Kallanish. In 2017, Salzgitter initiated the group-wide transition to SAP S/4HANA. Collaborating with SAP in the field of data analytics and sustainability is the logical next step, Salzgitter says. “The cloud solutions developed by SAP play an important part in our journey to climate-friendly steel production,” says chief financial officer Burkhard Becker.

The SAP Footprint Management product, for example, will in future help to calculate the company-wide CO2 footprint of Salzgitter. SAP Environment Health and Safety Management will meanwhile support the secure and sustainable structuring of the company’s operating processes. In addition, with SAP Analytics Cloud, the steelmaker says it is putting down the technological foundations for efficient and well-founded sustainability reporting.

“In this way, we are enabling our customers to achieve end-to-end business process transparency,” says Sven Mulder, managing director of SAP Deutschland, calling the cooperation a “pioneering project for climate-friendly steel production.”
