SAP on the city beat

SAP goes to work in Buenos Aires

2,000 square miles. 450,000 trees. 125,000 lights. 54,000 sidewalks. 30,000 drains. 27,000 roads. All critical components of Buenos Aires’s infrastructure – and all managed on paper. Until Deloitte helped get SAP solutions on the job.

For years, Buenos Aires, one of the largest cities in the world, relied on a mix of basic spreadsheets and written documents to manage the assets that comprise its public spaces – everything from sidewalks and trees to lights and drains.  As the city grew and faced more pressure from its growing population, this approach wasn’t getting the job done.  That’s where SAP solutions came in, helping the city improve its response to citizen requests, manage supplier relations more effectively, streamline administrative processes, and contribute to more transparent budgeting.  This is what responsive government in the 21st century looks like.

Answering the call

Deloitte customized SAP software to centralize and integrate data across multiple departments within the city government. We developed a business strategy for each application, providing onsite support. After four years, the city is better able to integrate information to respond more quickly to citizen needs.
