"When COVID hit around day two of our audit, it was clear it would need to be done remotely. We were in sprint 3 of 6 in the development of SAP. What did we do? We held our nerve. Taking it one week at a time to continue the momentum, SAP went live on time, on budget, and with no fuss or disruption. I could not be prouder of the teamwork, professionalism and positivity shown from all involved."
- Head of Finance, a British high-street retail chain
"We embarked an ambitious transition program, partnering with Cognizant for the implementation and delivery of both SAP S/4HANA and SAP in Azure. After a very intense, complex and challenging 10 months project, the new systems and infrastructure on the SAP S/4HANA core successfully went live on time. This was a tremendous achievement given that the entire program was executed remotely because of COVID-19 restrictions. The Cognizant team worked tirelessly alongside our IT and business teams to deliver a best practice SAP S/4HANA solution that will serve our business for many years to come."
