Notes:
BSN Sports are in SAP ECC 6.0 Enhancement Pack 8 with new GL, Profit Center accounting, and Document splitting. Just went live with this.

Leadership has decided to consolidate in SAP ECC at this point. There was a discussion to go to SAP S/4 HANA but the business is not ready for it at this time. They are getting set up for a COE model and SAP ECC was the best choice.
 
They will eventually go to SAP S/4 HANA but the main focus right now is the consolidation of business systems. SAP ECC is stable and forming a COE from an IT and Accounting standpoint.
 
BSN has had ECC, Varsity Spirit was on AS400 and Peoplesoft and is now moving to SAP ECC.
