Cognizant was the implementation partner for one of the most successful SAP roll-out programs in the pulp, paper and packaging industry. The program started in the client organization many years ago but faced several technical and managerial challenges. Hence Cognizant was brought in as a systems integrator to manage the roll-out in a structured and cost effective manner. Along with the SAP implementation, we also handled integration of external systems to provide an enterprise-wide platform for supply chain management for the client.
