However, due to a $400 million endowment, it could now transition to a stand-alone non-profit organization. The organizational restructuring meant the client would have the financial foundation required to operate independently while maintaining research partnerships with other institutions. Because the client had been using the internal SAP system of its parent organization to run its operations, this new status also meant the client would require its own independent infrastructure. As a satisfied user of SAP, the client wanted to continue to utilize the robust functionality of SAP ERP ECC 6.0 as their technology platform. SAP would also be able to integrate with third party vendors for their crucial business needs of HR/payroll, E-Procurement, grant awards, and space solutions. As a previous strategic partner for other initiatives at the parent organization, and with deep knowledge of the clients current environment and design, YASH Technologies was once again selected to manage the full lifecycle of this SAP implementation from project planning through Go- Live and support. YASHs knowledgeable consultants would utilize their in-depth experience and innovative ideas to deliver maximum return-on-investment.
