Janus Henderson is a global asset manager, specialising in active investment. With assets under management of £335 billion and over 2,000 employees worldwide, the company was formed in May 2017 with the merger of Henderson Global Investors with Janus Capital Group Inc. The company provides its institutional, retail and high net-worth client’s access to skilled investment professionals representing a broad range of asset classes, including equities, fixed income, property and alternative investments.

About the Project

Janus Henderson’s strategic plan is founded upon operational efficiency, client-centricity, global expansion and organic growth.  To support the business objectives, the IT strategy focused on the ability to exploit information and ensure data was accessible across the business.  With their current SAP BW platform going out of support, Janus Henderson needed to move to the latest SAP BW/4HANA platform as a first step that would provide the foundations for transforming their approach to data management.

Turning to itelligence with whom Janus Henderson’s had a long standing relationship from supporting their SAP BW landscape, itelligence introduced a structured approach that reviewed the options available.  After a comprehensive assessment that compared strategic objectives with the current data landscape, itelligence recommended a technical conversion to SAP BW/4HANA with clear documented rationale on how to get there.  This approach allowed Janus Henderson to move to the modern data platform quickly and at low risk. With the fixed scope implementation of SAP BW/4HANA, the technical conversion took only 6 months.
