Beginning a successful S/4HANA journey
When Northrop Grumman, a pioneering company that solves the toughest problems in space, aeronautics, defense, and cyberspace, required a next-generation, enterprise-wide business process platform, the technology of choice was SAP S/4HANA. Already on SAP HANA, Northrop needed a system that would be able to provide ever-increasing levels of business process speed, efficiency, agility, quality, and risk management. Northrop then embarked on a structured assessment journey to uncover exactly how a move to SAP S/4HANA would deliver the tangible outcomes needed to justify the business investment.
