Movers & Shakers
Utrecht - Havenbedrijf Rotterdam entered into a partnership with SAP and OutSystems service provider and knowledge partner myBrand Conclusion on 1 August. The collaboration involves the business transformation of the Port of Rotterdam Authority to SAP S/4HANA and a corresponding change process for a successful implementation. In addition, myBrand Conclusion will take care of the technical and functional management of the SAP environment as well as the further development and optimisation of this landscape. The agreement is valid for a period of five years.
With the collaboration, the Port of Rotterdam Authority aims to realise a strong and flexible SAP environment. The DevOps way of working is an important starting point for the organisation. After an extensive tendering process, myBrand Conclusion emerged as the best party. The decisive factor in this choice was the uniform way of working between the two companies. Service quality and the fact that myBrand Conclusion has embraced the DevOps philosophy for years also played a major role in the choice.
Claudia de Andrade-de Wit, Director Digital & IT Port of Rotterdam Authority: "I am very pleased that we are going to work with myBrand Conclusion to take our SAP environment to the next level. We carried out an extensive tendering process in which they convinced us of their knowledge and expertise. Moreover, there is a strong cultural fit. We find it important that a partner listens to our wishes, but is also honest about their feasibility and relevance. During the discussions it quickly became clear that we feel the same about this. I am convinced that myBrand Conclusion is an excellent choice and have every confidence in a successful collaboration."
Dennis Bruijns, Operational Director at myBrand Conclusion: "I am immensely proud that we can connect Port of Rotterdam Authority to us. The way they directed the procurement process was of exceptional quality. There was a click from the very first meeting and it turned out that our way of working was completely in line with the Port of Rotterdam Authority's wishes. In addition, this project fits perfectly with our core business, in which we can contribute to both the transformation and the further development of the landscape. On this basis, we can really enter into a long-term relationship, something that is in the DNA of myBrand Conclusion. I am therefore very much looking forward to the cooperation."
Seger Theuns, Director Enterprise Applications & Consulting at Conclusion: "Port of Rotterdam Authority is an organization with a socially critical function that values digitalization and sustainability. This fits perfectly with Conclusion's focus. I am therefore enormously proud to be able to add a beautiful organization such as the Port of Rotterdam Authority to our client portfolio. We have the ambition to be an excellent partner for them and look forward to a fruitful collaboration."
