As part of a complex program to integrate the major acquisition of SCA Packaging and drive $150 million of annual cost savings across the DS Smith Group, Ciber has hit the first, critical go-live milestone with the successful migration and consolidation of more than 20 existing SAP systems from SCA’s former parent company to a data center in the UK.

DS Smith Group’s systems also have been transitioned into a full managed services contract that will see Ciber take on the operational and functional application management for all of the Group’s SAP systems over the next five years.

DS Smith PLC acquired SCA Packaging in June 2012 to form one of the largest corrugated and recyclable packaging manufacturers in the world with combined revenues of nearly $6 billion. “The board targeted $150 million of annualized savings that could be realized through synergies and integration. The rapid consolidation and streamlining of the combined organization’s business systems is critical to deliver this for shareholders,” explained Nigel Blenkinsopp, Group CIO for DS Smith.

In an open tender, DS Smith chose to work with Ciber to rationalize and integrate its existing systems and to provide a high quality and responsive managed service that would facilitate the on-going performance of its systems. “We selected Ciber because they had the expertise to deliver a complex, global project such as ours, and they have not only demonstrated that but also an agile and flexible partnership approach. Their consultancy teams have been excellent and prepared to go the extra mile to make sure that we meet our deadlines on time and on budget,” Blenkinsopp said.

The delivery of the program involves a large international team comprising Ciber expertise and services from the U.K, Netherlands, Germany and Poland. “We are delighted to be working with DS Smith on this exciting program,” said Gary Springall, Managing Director of Ciber U.K. “It is a great example of how Ciber combines its global delivery capabilities with strong local account management. Our U.K. team has done a great job building a relationship with DS Smith, with excellent support from our consultancy teams in the Netherlands, our 24x7 global service desk operation based in Poland and our center of excellence for SAP® Managed Services in Germany. We look forward to delivering the next phases of the program and to helping DS Smith realize their business objectives.”

The overall program comprises a number of critical events over the next six months. In addition to transferring the former parent company’s data center to the U.K., Ciber will also take responsibility for delivering the on-going support and maintenance of the production environment of the SAP systems; development and introduction of change to the production environment and provision of ad-hoc changes; the creation of a new finance and procurement shared service; the rollout into targeted parts of the Paper and Packaging Divisions; extension of the SAP template to encompass new modules and functionality, and provision of a five-year managed services contract.

The technical architecture of the SAP system comprises a complete range of components from SAP with Ciber providing expertise and consultancy for SAP ERP, SAP Advanced Planning and Optimization, SAP NetWeaver Process Integration (SAP NetWeaver PI), SAP Supplier Relationship Management (SAP SRM), SAP Enterprise Master Data Management, SAP NetWeaver® Business Warehouse, SAP NetWeaver Portal, SAP System Landscape Archiving and SAP Solution Manager.
