SAP, Coca-Cola pact keeps data in perfect harmony

Calling it one of the most significant technology projects in the consumer space, SAP's logistics expert Franz Joseph Schoppengerd asserts that a new partnership with Coca-Cola could change the way the food and beverage industry does business. Coca-Cola Enterprises Inc. last month announced a multiyear deal with SAP to connect information gathered by delivery drivers in the field with the massive beverage company's SAP R/3 Enterprise software. Coca-Cola plans to develop a system over the next two years, one that will revolve around SAP's core enterprise resource planning (ERP) product, as well as its NetWeaver integration middleware, to enable mobile connectivity. In an interview with SearchSAP.com, Schoppengerd, vice president of direct store delivery processes at SAP, said the project will be watched closely by direct-store delivery companies around the globe, mostly those in the food and beverage industry. Applications developed with Coca-Cola could be available to customers within the next several years, he said.
