Our client, Gulf Medical Company (GMC), is a leading provider of state-of-the-art medical technology and solutions to hospitals and medical centers throughout the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the gulf region. Prior to our engagement, GMC’s ERP system was ECC 6.0 with over 700 custom developments introduced over time to address previous business requirements. It needed enterprise systems that were able to adapt and scale to business needs on the fly. Therefore, the company wanted to leverage SAP S/4HANA’s innovative features, including Universal Journal, faster financial closing and SAP Fiori Apps. GMC’s additional goals included improving agility and business responsiveness by moving to SAP’s standard functionalities and reducing total cost of ownership (TCO). Due to Cognizant’s industry-leading S/4HANA migration tools, accelerators and frameworks that enable clients to migrate faster with less risk, GMC turned to Cognizant for the migration to S/4HANA.
