Chemical Carve out Enabled by Protera’s Total IT Outsourcing capabilities

Carve out and migration of data and rebuild of new SAP and non-SAP landscapes in 30 days in order to meet the client business and financial targets/obligations associated with a private equity buy out.

Client Profile

World’s largest producer of additives for PVC and other industries with employees world-wide. The company is also a leader in environmentally friendly addities such as epoxidized soybean oil and specialized additives that make children’s toys more safe. Privately held with Global Operations and customers.

Client Challenges

The client was spun off from large parent organization. Since the parent was providing the IT Services, the new owners needed to get an IT solution quickly.

They required a total IT outsourcing solution to host and manage SAP, Microsoft Exchange, Citrix and other applications.

Additional challenges and requirements included a rapid carve out and migration of data, and a guaranteed time frame for migration in order to minimize impact on business operations.

The final solution needed the ability to scale with current/future acquisition.
