SINGAPORE; Jan. 31, 2008– Sierra Solutions and Republic Polytechnic's (RP) School of Information and Communications Technology (School of IT) today announces the completion of the SAP system setup and support for RP’s Diploma in Business Applications (DBA) programme.
The project involved the enhancement of their SAP solutions for Manufacturing, Retail and Healthcare involving consultants from Sierra Solutions with the relevant expertise. The SAP systems serve as a platform to facilitate Republic Polytechnic’s DBA students to learn about real-world business processes and to apply this knowledge directly to solving real-life problems. The project also involves the day-to-day running and monitoring of the systems.
“Sierra’s consultants so far have shown to have relevant SAP System implementation experience and good business and communication skills. They were able to understand RP School of IT’s requirements and tune the solution accordingly. They grasped our queries fast and worked extremely hard when problems occurred”, said Choong Siew Ling, Programme Chair of DBA at RP. “With this project, they have been willing to accommodate to our academic schedule and constraints and work with us with a ‘partner’ mindset.”
Ranjan Vaswani, General Manager of Sierra Solutions, said, “We are honored to be part of this cutting-edge programme from Republic Polytechnic. We were able to successfully harness our industry know-how to support a curriculum that will give the students an advantage in their future careers. The SAP platform is an ideal choice to allow students to grasp workplace business processes that are specific in each industry. It would not have been possible without a collaborative approach between Republic Polytechnic and us.”
Sierra Solutions will continue to provide on-going support to Republic Polytechnic in curriculum updates to ensure its relevance in today’s work place.
