Waters SAP (ECC) Enterprise Architect in Milford, Massachusetts
We are looking to expand the SAP team with a seasoned SAP Enterprise Architect as we embark on a multi-year initiative to modernize our SAP platform, support the Waters’ digital evolution and empower our end user community with the best tools, information and processes in the market. Everything we do is in support of our customers – both internal and external – to make their engagement with Waters nothing short of world class.
Waters has leveraged the SAP tools and platform since the mid 1990s. Waters has embraced the use of SAP products for their day to day operations and has built upon that SAP platform in the 20+ years since initially deploying it, with more than 65 (SAP and non-SAP) systems interfacing into the core SAP ERP environment today.
