To keep ahead of the rapidly shifting retail marketplace, Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) launched a transformation initiative designed to modernize the company’s core business processes to give employees better access to data in real-time at all levels of the organization. The initiative began as a program to replace its custom legacy ERP system with SAP S/4HANA at its over 9,000 stores worldwide but soon turned into a full-scale transformation of WBA’s business.
“With over 9,000 stores, we’ll have the world’s largest retail implementations of SAP S/4HANA of this scope globally,” Mark Slater, VP, Platform Information Officer, Business Services, WBA, says.
