Overview of the
transformation
programme
6
The need for transformation
Ensure Exxaros sustainability.
Protect and build Exxaro s
reputation.
Develop Exxaros leadership and
people.
Improve Exxaros portfolio.
Achieve operational excellence.
Expected financial return on capital
within the core operations does not
support sustainable growth cash
requirements.
Services and corporate functions
do not serve the business
optimally, resulting in below
standard service delivery,
unacceptable service cost and
inappropriate control.
Goals
Improve financial return for
investors.
Optimise the core structures.
Hardwire core for improvement.
Establish greater role clarity.
Better service delivery.
Reduced services costs.

Benefits
Alignment in structures and
processes:
High level alignment in core
structures.
Improved focus on planning and
optimisation.
Aligned key business process.
Value creation:
Significant revenue potential.
Focus on plant efficiencies,
product mix and market
optimisation.
Cost reduction:
Significant reduction in costs.
To achieve its Mission and Vision
and to live the Values and the
Brand Promise, Exxaro identified
the following focus areas:
To deliver this, Exxaro identified
the following business challenges
Siyaya was then launched to
address these challenges

The Siyaya transformation programme
we are on the move
A strategic business programme,
called Siyaya, was launched to
achieve these and other strategic
goals such as creating unrivalled
value in terms of return on capital
employed, and creating robust
businesses that share, optimise
cost structures, improve
throughput and optimise their
sales mix.

It was recognised that technology would be a key enabler to achieve
this vision
September 2010
Investigation to to understand the key
business drivers and technology
requirements of Siyaya and determine the
most appropriate ERP Landscape
Strategy and Roadmap to enable this
vision.
1990s
Exxaro was a pioneer in implementing
SAP in the middle and late 1990s and
had six existing SAP instances and one
Elypse system.
November 2010
Decision to replace SAP 4.7 systems with
a single consolidated SAP ECC6
system.
Exxaros Business Intelligence (BI) capability
was advanced, as this capability has historically
been necessary to create a single view of a
consolidated Exxaro across the multiple
underlying clients.
Technology challenges
Lack of consistency in
business process
execution, underpinned by
discrepancies in supporting
systems. Configuration
differences in the various SAP
clients reflect process
deviations and differences
between operations.
Technology barriers
existed, created by the
multiple SAP client
environment, preventing the
organisation from leveraging
cross business capability
e.g. the opportunity to manage
critical stock as a single
business entity.
Business process
ownership was lacking in
some areas, and the mandate
to govern the organisation in a
single consistent manner is
absent or lacking.
Master data discrepancies
remained a challenge
hindering standardization,
although some notable efforts
have been made, particularly
in Supply Chain.

Blue print Implementation
Single SAP
ECC6 Instance
SAP consolidation into one ECC6 instance
Exxaro opted for a two phase approach to
the overall execution of the ECC6 Project.
1. The first phase was focused on Design/
Blueprinting. This phase included the
calibration of all level four processes to be
aligned with SAP and the requirements from
an ARIS business process modeling
perspective.
2. Deloitte, having been the auditors to
Exxaro until December 2010, was appointed
in February 2011 for the Implementation
phase.
