Run a hassle-free SAP environment

OVERVIEW

Today’s business priorities cannot be met with 20-year-old perceptions of monolithic, inflexible systems and prolonged waterfall-driven innovation cycles. In a fast-moving and volatile business environment, enterprises must reimagine their business models to respond faster to market dynamics. With SAP S/4HANA, enterprises can future-proof their backbone to become agile, flexible and scalable. It is critical, however, to do it right the first time. An automated and intelligent testing approach is the key to success.

FEATURED WORK

S/4HANA transformation for a global biopharmaceutical company

Background

Our client, an American global biopharmaceutical company, was looking to drive faster, efficient and effective delivery of therapies to patients and customers by improving transparency and accuracy of information across the supply chain. The company wanted to reimagine and transform its business processes to achieve operational excellence across order to cash, source to pay, plan to inventory and account to report while complying with FDA, CFR Part 21, IFRS and GAAP norms. Its digital transformation strategy, driven by S/4HANA-led core modernization and technology rationalization, reached across a dozen disparate platforms.

Solution

As the lead partner, Cognizant delivered the digital agenda in three waves across the client’s manufacturing facilities in Europe, the U.S. and APAC and its affiliates in 18 countries in Europe, APAC and Latin America. We implemented SAP S/4HANA (on-premises and a public cloud) and integrated it with more than 18 technologies.

Impact

The company achieved its SAP S/4HANA transformation in a 30% shorter timeframe and realized $20 million in cost savings by leveraging Cognizant’s intelligent ERP platform, quality assurance and automation capabilities.
