Enabling Digital Transformation With SAP on Cloud for a Leading Supply Chain Firm


The Challenge

A leading Middle East-based supply chain firm faced challenges with its existing on-premises enterprise SAP production system workloads. The firm wanted a more agile, cost-efficient, secure and scalable IT enterprise environment so it could respond faster to changing market requirements. Its existing on-premises IT infrastructure was a major hindrance, keeping the company from achieving high levels of flexibility and responsiveness to continually evolving business and customer needs. The firm approached Cognizant to help migrate its on-premises enterprise SAP production system workloads to the Microsoft Azure cloud platform.

Cognizant’s robust consulting, domain and transformation capabilities, as well as our strategic partnerships with Microsoft and SAP, enabled standardization and modernization of the client’s IT infrastructure with a digital core while ensuring business continuity.
