itelligence Implements SAP ERP at Russian Pilot Project

The Baykonur Space Complex is absolutely unique. The first man in space took off from here. Baykonur is now also an international starting point for supply missions to the International Space Station (ISS) and a pioneering center for the rapidly expanding space tourism to the ISS. The Republic State Enterprise “Infrakos” has been chosen as a pilot automation object. Its activity is regulated by the Aerospace Committee of the Kazakh Ministry for Education and Science. “Infrakos” ensures safety and efficient utilization of Baykonur objects, performs scientific research, design and construction activities and is involved in planning and implementing state and intergovernmental aerospace programs. “Infrakos” also acts as an organizer of trips to the Baykonur Space Complex.
The SAP solution implementation by itelligence’s consultants will take place in several stages, directly on site. First of all, the administration, financial accounting and controlling processes will be migrated to SAP ERP. As early as the pilot implementation phase, the materials management and asset management modules will be available to the customer. The system will enable the corporate management to make decisions on the basis of up-to-date and precise information. Migration of the HR management and plant maintenance functional areas to the SAP solution will take place in the subsequent project phases. As the implementation object belongs to the Republic of Kazakhstan, all the relevant Kazakh financial accounting rules have to be incorporated in the SAP solution.
Optimum management of the resources of the Baykonur site requires efficient and reliable administrative, financial and design-related information. In itelligence, the responsible managers at Baykonur have selected an consultancy for SAP solutions with an in-house team of advisers with experience of the Russian and Kazakh markets as well as an outstanding level of SAP expertise. itelligence has been active as an consultancy for SAP solutions in Russia for many years, and has a branch in Moscow.
