Reading, United Kingdom – 14th of September 2017 – Invenio Business Solutions announced today the successful go-live of the KSL – Shine project for the Indian media company The Hindu Group.

The Hindu is an English-language Indian daily newspaper. Headquartered at Chennai, it is one of the two Indian newspapers of record and the second most circulated English-language newspaper in India.

In February this year, Invenio was assigned to work on the project, which involved the migration from their legacy database to SAP HANA, along with an implementation of an IS-Media module. The project also involved the migration of tax procedure forms and a GST implementation.

With the successful go-live on the 1st of September, The Hindu is now using the SAP IS-Media solution for their newspaper circulation and advertisement management business. They can now gain access to significant data for inventory management, therefore bringing it to the most optimised level. The company has also better visibility and control on bad debts from agency and other distributors. Lastly, having the data on one single system, they have built custom pricing schemes for improved revenue generation. Working on one of the latest database management systems – SAP HANA - this becomes the first IS-Media project in India to be implemented on HANA platform and it will provide to The Hindu better integration and performance.

Invenio’s Chief Operating Officer, Arun Bala, commented: “We are glad that we had the chance to complete the first IS-Media project on SAP HANA, in India. We are glad that we delivered the project in such a short time and the system in now successfully working.”
