Capstone Mining to modernise IT infrastructure, lower costs with SAP solution

SAP SE has announced that Canada-based Capstone Mining has selected the RISE with SAP offering as part of a company-wide enterprise resource planning (ERP) consolidation initiative.

Capstone, a base metal producer, is committed to responsible mining practices, including its approach to sustainability, which embraces technological innovations, SAP says. Through the implementation of RISE with SAP, Capstone aims to modernise its IT infrastructure and lower costs.

The company plans to implement SAP S/4HANA Cloud on Microsoft Azure, moving from SAP ERP Central Component (SAP ECC) by the end of 2021. Capstone selected RISE with SAP not only for consolidation but also for improved flexibility and ability to scale, according to the company.

Capstone’s CFO, Raman Randhawa, said: “As commodity prices soar, we need to keep our operations competitive to maximise our output and opportunities. Consolidating our IT platforms and moving to a more secure, low-cost cloud option will allow us to modernise and streamline our business.”

Capstone chose to implement RISE with SAP, SAP’s business transformation as a service, to leverage the success it enjoyed with its legacy SAP software that was active at its Pinto Valley mine in USA (pictured), SAP says. The implementation will help to smooth the transition of SAP services across its other mining operations and will provide Capstone with a unified view of its overall business operations.
