IBM and Kraft Foods (part of the Mondelēz International group of companies) have extended their engagement until September 2015, to continue helping Kraft in their strategy of implementing three SAP instances globally in three years. This includes the roll-out of a corporate template to harmonize business process across their Developing Markets in CEE and MEA.

This extension marks the completion of the initial roll outs in Central Europe and Russia. The next project, Catalyst CEEMA Wave 4, is now in progress, covering an additional 11 countries in Eastern & South East Europe, Middle East and Northern Africa, with a planned go-live in May 2013.

With the completion of the program in 2014, 22 countries in the CEE & MEA region will be operating on a single enterprise resource planning (ERP) platform, alongside their EU counterparts.
