“I was delighted to be able to thank the German-based team personally for the success that they brought in our recent SAP S/4HANA deployment. There was a high degree of complexity but the project was delivered on time, on quality, and on budget. Throughout the project, they acted as ‘one-team’, along with our Global Business Process Architects and the local Chinese Key Users. With the successful first month-end-close on Friday, it would be hard to find a smoother go-live in our ERP deployment history.”
- Director Global ERP Projects, multinational pharmaceutical company, HQ in Germany
“This is a significant milestone in the ATLAS journey to creating our long-term goals of delivering reliable timely financial data. It is often forgotten that our IT infrastructure plays a key role in the successful delivery of that goal. I am extremely proud of what we have achieved with the migration to Azure.”
- Head Finance-IT, leading reinsurance and insurance provider
"Cognizant was completely committed to the overall project success: Deploying high quality, global processes. Above all, they acted together with us as "one team", doing what was needed to done to achieve the success, as a true partner. With complexity and size of this S/4 HANA deployment, inevitably, there are challenges, but Cognizant responded well and consistently met all project milestones throughout the project. The preparation and hard work meant that the go-live was the smoothest in our ERP history."
Head of IT, global life sciences company
"Well, it was a quite long happy experience with Cognizant from the time we started the overall evaluation of our systems during the assessment until we successfully completed the whole conversion to S/4HANA rel 1809. We are so happy with what we've done so far.”
IT head, leading medical solution provider in Middle East
As an early adopter of S/4HANA, a Norwegian construction, oil & gas and services company needed to upgrade to the latest version to improve visibility and eliminate legacy inefficiencies. This required a multistep conversion from S/4HANA 1503 to S/4HANA 1809.
One of the first S/4HANA 1503 to S/4HANA 1809 conversions, this multistep project included business partner synchronization and integration with all business systems. The project also included upgrading from PI to PO and activating Fiori applications for key business processes. Production downtime was limited to 1½ days.
A medical equipment manufacturer with more than 1,000 users required an ECC to S/4HANA 1809 single-step conversion.
Cognizant partnered with the client to define the business case for S/4HANA and implement its S/4HANA conversion program, which helped eliminate custom developments, migrate CRM processes to the S/4HANA core and simplify the IT landscape. Deploying S/4HANA innovations and Fiori apps helped improve customer and employee experiences.
