Brillio helped Coats, a UK-based global leader in thread, yarn, and consumer textiles, move to SAP on Azure. Challenge: customer demand, on-demand delivery without stockpiling, delivery guaranteed for exact colors. Turnaround went from 48 hours to 4-8 hours.
Coats needed agility, performance, scalability, and deliverability. They moved from Oracle and IBM; now all DBs are on HANA. Benefits: cost efficiency (TCO up 60%, efficiency up 30%), faster time to market (same day factory planning), operational efficiency (reports that took 6 hours now take 10 mins, a 98% improvement), and real-time insights (data-driven insights enabled accurate demand forecasting & sales projections).
Using Windows app servers on the frontend and SAP HANA on SUSE Linux in the back-end enables a stable and cost-effective environment.
