Key priorities for 2021
We have recently deployed the intelligent enterprise platform SAP S/4HANA to drive our digital transformation journey across all our process plants to support future growth plans of business with DR systems in the Cloud environment. With this implementation, we have achieved the migration from legacy ERP systems to a nimble, future-ready enterprise platform. As priorities of 2021, we are in the process of deriving the best benefits from S/4 HANA and working on getting the real-time information in Product Costing and Profitability analysis etc., apart from envisaging several other initiatives like RPA and IoT capabilities. Also there are initiatives for amalgamation of group companies this year, which are demanding to handle very highly technical projects with absolute use of AI/ML technology as a core to centralise master data and seamless reporting which will provide us better, more tightly integrated inventory management processes. We are also targeting enhanced cost controls with the ability to compare costs across manufacturing locations and cost centers with this Intelligent Core Capability.


Adopting Work-From Anywhere
As the pandemic brought a lot of changes in life, approaches and working culture, we are not exceptional from it. “New Normal’’ will be more tech-driven and bring more challenges to adopt the best practices to embrace new opportunities parallelly arising. Being a manufacturing company with structured policies, we have allowed WFH / WFA by bringing in quick changes in our SSL VPN usage by adapting two factor authentication with FortiTokens concept. Also we have allowed our ERP users to access S/4 HANA systems with secured access methods. Though adopting Work-From Anywhere, demanding more data security measures and changes in authorisations allotment, we were able to achieve the same following the best practices as per our Cyber Security Strategy.


Redesigning IT & Security strategy
Digitalization and growing the WFH/WFA nowadays, there is always an increase in the risk of different compromises and cyberattacks on any organisation. There should be holistic protection for all systems especially for critical infrastructure facilities and other systems like ERP, which is the backbone of business. We had formulated a comprehensive security strategy that clearly defined the current state of the security environment and aligned with business objectives for the next three years. As part of this security strategy, we have leveraged the setting up of Disaster Recovery (DR) Server in a cloud environment to provide better protection to our data and ensured improvements in IT operations and providing better services to our internal customers and other stakeholders.
