Case Study

Solvay - Harmonizing IT Change Management with ChaRM

Following the acquisition of Rhodia, Solvay’s IT organization became responsible for the governance of a larger landscape, consisting of approximately 60 SAP and 150 non-SAP environments. In addition, Rhodia’s IT governance and change management processes were completely different from the ones in use at Solvay, creating an additional layer of complexity and risk. Leveraging SAP Solution Manager’s ChaRM Solvay was able to create a single central IT Change Management process that allowed them to monitor every single change throughout the company, harmonizing the governance of support services and simplifying the end to end change management process across the entire value chain of the “new Solvay”.
