Relying on decades-old technology can cost institutions time, money, and valuable manpower. The importance of a digital transformation strategy is expected to accelerate as universities look to adapt to the ongoing pandemic. In this case study, Penn State University serves as an example of how important digital transformation projects can be to an institution of higher learning. Before modernizing their IT infrastructure with an SAP S/4HANA implementation, the university set clear objectives: build a new financial system capable of not only supporting operations, but also providing employees the tools needed to learn the new system and to empower them to make speedy and accurately informed decisions to help the institution keep running in unpredictable situations.
