Congratulations American Airlines On Completing the Merger-Driven HR Data Transformation Initiative

The merger of American Airlines and US Airways required a major initiative — called Project Spring — to consolidate HR and payroll data across the newly combined airline’s 130,000+ active employees and 500,000+ former employees. A Premier SAP Solution Extensions Partner, BackOffice Associates partnered with AA to lead data migration and information governance efforts for this program.

The project involved migrating employee populations in legacy US Airways and AA systems to SAP SuccessFactors and HANA Enterprise Cloud Platform — a single, cloud-based HR and payroll platform.

"The BackOffice team has helped us to understand more about the complexities and nuances of our data than we ever knew existed. Now, they’re helping us to build on this foundation as we establish our ongoing data governance capabilities. We couldn’t ask for a better partner in managing the data of American’s most valuable asset – our people."

Implementation Highlights

As one of AA’s largest post-merger data transformation programs, Project Spring demanded superior data migration and information governance capabilities to effectively migrate comprehensive legacy employee data from SAP HCM, Oracle HR and multiple supporting system into SAP SuccessFactors and HANA Enterprise Cloud Platform. The new cloud-based HR and payroll solution would then serve as a single, cloudbased solution to manage all HR data.
