Belgian Railways Migrates To New Financial Management System
The SNCB Group (Belgian Railways) had determined the need to migrate to SAP in order to support their future financial management. But it was absolutely necessary that their current system continue to function properly and robustly until the new one was operational. ICTRA and Capgemini decided on a two-phased approach. During the initial transitional phase Capgemini would take care of the maintenance of financial applications for fixed credits, invoicing and accounting, in total representing 34 million lines of code. In parallel, ICTRA would devote itself entirely to creating, developing and finally, maintaining the SAP system. The legacy system functioned smoothly and reliably during the development and launch of the new Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system.
