About Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin
Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin is one of the 20 largest universities in Germany and among the most renowned institutions of higher learning worldwide. It was targeted for supplementary funding as part of Germany’s excellence strategy in 2019, having already been nominated as a “University of Excellence” as part of the German Universities Excellence Initiative in 2012. With over 40,000 students (including the Charité research hospital), 460 professorships, and an annual budget of around 500 million euros (including third-party resources), HU Berlin is one of Germany’s leading universities, with broad national and international recognition.
With "humboldt gemeinsam" to maintain excellence on the road to SAP SAP S/4HANA
By implementing SAP as an integrated standard software solution, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin plans to optimize its administrative processes to support its scientific excellence. Both central administration and the individual faculties see the need to optimize the administration of cross-departmental processes, simplify the provisioning of control-relevant information and data, and improve data quality.
Unique scope of SAP services to digitalize administration and faculties at HU Berlin
By 2023, the university and its implementation partner Scheer will create a standardized, integrated SAP landscape for the administration of finances, personnel, and facilities, as well as for procurement and reporting. The first big step has already been taken: HU Berlin began productive use of the new SAP landscape in January 2021
With more than 30 years of experience with SAP solutions, Scheer is the ideal partner for the digital transformation of educational and research institutions. As a leading full-service provider for SAP-based resource management, campus management, and learning management, Scheer supports higher education and research processes from design to realization and operation – as a one-stop shop.
“We are happy to have recruited Scheer for this project. They were very understanding of the interests and needs of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin.”
– Dr. Ludwig Kronthaler, Vice-President for Budget, Personnel and Technology | Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin
