DCW2SAP Implementation



Business Relationship Since



As with many of our long-term customers, contact with what was then Bibliographisches Institut und F. A. Brockhaus AG was established through support for the DCW application of the accounting department at the publisher's headquarters in Mannheim. In 2006, BI decided to replace the DCW system with SAP. In view of the migration projects successfully completed and the migration tools which had already been developed and were ready for use, the client opted for consolut as implementation partner.

During work on the project, special emphasis was placed on the migration of all historic controlling data concerning print runs and on the development of the new media material master. The implementation of this system was the basis for a new SAP media industry solution, IS Media. In future, this solution means that many development, purchasing, production, sales and service procedures can be automated and managed centrally. Since the completion of the project, BI has seen consolut as a guarantee for lean projects completed to schedule from start to finish.

Project highlights at a glance:

  • migration of historic indicators in the finance and controlling sectors at the level of individual vouchers
  • introduction of new media material master for IS Media
  • BAG interface for central payment management

  • customer-specific address structure and greeting formula in forms
  • training of key users and final users in the accounting, controlling and fixed asset accounting departments
