ABB® Deploys Nakisa® Org Management Solutions in the Cloud



MONTREAL, Canada - September 1, 2014- Nakisa®, a leading provider of organization and talent management software solutions, today announced that ABB®, a global leader in power and automation technologies with 150,000 employees globally, has deployed Nakisa Org Management solutions in the cloud. By selecting to deploy the solutions on Nakisa Cloud, ABB were able to realize their strategic objective to improve workforce insight, while benefitting from preserving the security and control of their data and continuing to leverage their long-standing investment in their SAP ERP system.

Well established as a leader in cutting-edge technology, ABB were keen to adopt the latest technologies to fulfill their strategic vision of modernizing their HCM solutions. ABB established the requirements for a simple, coherent and high-performing cloud solution that would provide them with an accurate and secure enterprise-wide view of their SAP HCM data. Maintaining compliance for data privacy and security and real-time access to their SAP ERP system were paramount requirements in the selection process. ABB chose Nakisa's cloud-based Org Management solutions and as a result, will lower IT costs and ensure data privacy and accuracy.

"Increasingly our customers are looking for flexible cloud-based solutions but don't want to compromise data security or trade in years of investment in their existing ERP systems," said Nakisa's COO, Chuck Frosst. "Nakisa offers a cloud solution without compromise, providing customers with the advantage of functionality-rich, seamlessly integrated solutions that ensure data privacy and continue to maximize SAP ERP."

Nakisa Cloud provided ABB with a secure solution by leveraging their on-premise single sign-on (SSO) and existing authorizations, minimizing the risks to data security. Additionally, ABB were able to preserve the privacy and control of their data in-house rather than hosting it outside of their on-premise environment, reducing the complexity and security risks caused by third-party data extraction and the inaccuracies of data staging. With Nakisa Cloud, ABB benefits from the live bi-directional connection to the SAP ERP back-end that provides them with a single source of truth for improved business decision-making. Nakisa Cloud also provides the benefits of faster implementations, having a highly configurable system to support unique business requirements and delivery of ongoing enhancements, updates and patches.
