JULY 16—The Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center in San Diego will use Internet portal platforms designed by SAP Public Services Inc. and PricewaterhouseCoopers Inc. of New York to modernize Navy financial processes.
Early this month, the SPAWAR Command center, the site of one of four Navy enterprise modernization pilots, implemented mySAP Financials and mySAP Enterprise Collaboration Portal to improve the center's asset management, financial management, program management, procurement and strategic planning capabilities. The collaboration will let the center better track project funding and develop timely financial and project reports, said Rik Pierson, director of the center's ERP Program Management Office.
'SSC-San Diego determined more than two years ago the value of going to commercial software for our business operations,' Pierson said. 'We're very encouraged that the SAP software being implemented ' will provide us with the capabilities we were seeking to manage our financial and human resources much more efficiently.'

The platform can integrate multiple information from multiple systems and databases, said Tom Skirk, president of SAP Public Services of Wayne, Pa.

The center is the Navy's pilot site for warfare center management. The other three Navy modernization pilot sites are the Naval Air Systems Command, Naval Sea Systems Command and a joint effort by the Naval Supply Systems Command and Naval Air Systems Command.

NAVAIR is also using the mySAP tools [see].
