Jakarta – May 5, 2023: The best pharmaceutical company in Indonesia, PT Holi Pharma, announced a collaboration with IBM (NYSE: IBM) and SAP in accelerating digital transformation to grow and develop in the country. IBM Consulting has helped Holi Pharma successfully deploy RISE with SAP to move mission-critical ERP workloads and processes for the enterprise to the cloud. This will result in faster operational insights for Holi Pharma, with the hope of having a significant impact on the group’s efficiency and production capacity.

Driven by the aspiration to become a national asset, the steps taken by Holi Pharma are in line with the Indonesia 4.0 roadmap to make this densely populated country one of the top 10 economies in the world by 2030 [1]. The pharmaceutical sector is one of the seven industrial sectors identified by the Ministry of Industry of the Republic of Indonesia as a key player and contributor to the country’s economic success.

“We were impressed with IBM Consulting’s migration of a number of core business processes, which was completed within four months,” said Lioe Julius, Head of IT, Holi Pharma. “A reliable, single ERP system, as well as next-generation analytics in RISE with SAP, combined with AWS, allow us to get the insights and reports at the pace that our business needs today, as well as respond to changes in the market, and make informed decisions. strategically more quickly to support the growth and expansion of our roadmap.”

By working with IBM, SAP, and AWS, Holi Pharma can now accelerate the SAP S/4HANA transformation journey and share data efficiently among business units to provide decision makers with the right operational insights. It also speeds up processes such as month-end closing and production planning, allowing Holi Pharma employees to spend more time on the value-added analysis process. RISE with SAP enables Holi Pharma to perform a more detailed profitability analysis at the segment and product level using the FI and CO modules.

With the elasticity of high-performance computing and storage systems, AWS enables IBM and SAP to deploy the RISE landscape with SAP more quickly, significantly shortening project timelines for Holi Pharma.

“Having integrated, accurate and real-time data in the company is a strong foundation for increasing the production capacity and innovation of the Holi Pharma group,” said Andreas Diantoro, Managing Director, SAP Indonesia. “Enabled by RISE with SAP, the combined expertise and experience from expanded partnerships with IBM and AWS underpin Holi Pharma to accelerate its business transformation and enhance its leadership position.”

“Our partnership will help clients streamline and modernize their SAP workloads,” said Gunawan Susanto, Country Manager, Indonesia, AWS. “The collaboration between AWS, IBM, and SAP illustrates the IBM ecosystem at work in addressing the challenges regarding speed and efficiency that our clients face when migrating and modernizing their ERP systems.”

IBM and SAP have deep experience and knowledge to help companies that want to advance their transformation journey by leveraging a hybrid cloud approach, said Andrian Purnama, Managing Partner, IBM Consulting, Indonesia. “Our work with Holi Pharma will be the backbone that enables companies to enhance their digital transformation and accelerate their growth.”
