Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Initiative Overview

The Indian Institute of Science (IISc) decided to implement a state-of-the-art Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution to meet the requirements of the Institute, which include administration, finance, purchase, HR, payroll, and academic activities. The Institute decided to structure the procurement process for the total turn-key solution into two phases:

  • Phase 1 involved identifying an Enterprise ERP solution to meet the stated requirements of the Institute and to also look at either a hosted model or the SaaS model for implementing the solution.
  • Phase 2 involved identifying a suitable System Integrator (SI) to implement and customize the solution, wherever needed, to meet exactly the Institute requirement and provide the necessary support for the application administration and management during the subsequent phase of the life cycle of the project.

SAP S/4 HANA, which is SAP’s latest offering, was selected as the platform by the Institute. SAP Cloud-Infrastructure partner, CtrlS was selected as the service provider for cloud infrastructure services. Having selected the platform, an RFP was issued in September 2017 for selecting a System Integrator. Following a detailed techno-commercial bidding process involving four major vendors, Wipro Technologies was selected as the Implementation Partner for SAP S/4 HANA ERP for the Institute.
