Oxygen, A DXC Technology Company helps DuluxGroup undertake SAP BI de-merger and upgrade

With Oxygen helping on the delivery, DuluxGroup won the 2013 Gartner Business Intelligence Excellence Award.

Paint-maker Dulux Group estimates it has saved $600,000 over five years and clocked up a return on investment of 207 percent after upgrading and augmenting its business intelligence system.

When the demands of a systems de-merger found DuluxGroup’s Business Intelligence (BI) team short handed, it turned to SAP specialists Oxygen for help.

Headquartered in Melbourne, Australia, DuluxGroup manages a portfolio that includes some of Australia’s and New Zealand’s most recognised and trusted brands including Dulux, Selleys, Yates, Cabot’s, British Paints, Berger, Poly and Hortico. When approval was gained to completely de-merge DuluxGroup from Orica in July 2010, DuluxGroup’s BI systems were deeply entwined within Orica’s SAP Business Warehousing solution and hence a separation project was required.

DuluxGroup BI Team Lead, Paul Sullivan, says when the time for the de-merger grew closer his resources were already allocated to other critical projects. He had three options – rebuild an internal resource, hire contractors or hire a consultancy firm.
