Operational efficiencies and access to innovation were the key drivers to Sinar Mas, a leading Indonesian conglomerate, to select RISE with SAP.

Sinar Mas, active in seven business pillars: Pulp & Paper, Agri-business & Food, Financial Services, Developer & Real Estate, Communications & Technology, Energy & Infrastructure, and Healthcare, will initially move five of its businesses to the cloud with RISE with SAP, a complete business transformation offering of cloud solutions, infrastructure, and services.

“Organisations today need to ensure they can adapt quickly to new innovations, if they are to continue to grow and achieve their ambitions. Our move to the cloud, with the help of our long-term partner SAP, will ensure that we’re not only able to better navigate future challenges but also leverage future benefits, such as AI, while contributing to Indonesia’s economic growth,” said Franky Widjaja, Chairman and CEO of Sinar Mas Agribusiness & Food and of Golden Agri-Resources.

Previously reliant on an on-premise system, Sinar Mas’s decision to migrate to SAP S/4 HANA Cloud is driven by a desire to streamline its operations, boost agility, innovate faster and drive scalability, all enabled by a clean digital core. The move will also help Sinar Mas future-proof its organization to better serve its customers, as Artificial Intelligence (AI) continues to transform Indonesia’s business landscape. SAP Business AI is built into the SAP applications that power critical business processes. It comprises a range of AI innovations that have been developed using extensive industry-specific data and deep process knowledge, all created using responsible AI practices.

According to Jesslyne Widjaja, Executive Director-Strategy & People at Golden Agri-Resources, “Having access to accurate, high-quality data from across our organization is critical to Sinar Mas being able to better integrate and streamline our operations. Moving to SAP’s Cloud ERP will provide us with this holistic view of our data, which will enable us to adapt better to changes impacting all of the industries we operate in.”
