BOOM breaks another record with Cognitus – Fastest SAP S/4HANA implementation in the federal cloud.

Cognitus – Fastest SAP S/4HANA

Cognitus helped Boom improve reporting and recording while meeting SOX compliance with a proven, SAP industry cloud solution in a secure FedRAMP compliant environment.

The aerospace and defense (A&D) industry is no stranger to advanced technology, and startups like BOOM Supersonic are embracing state of the art industry cloud solutions like RISE with SAP S/4HANA to gain the speed and agility needed to be the leaders in the new experience economy.

As Boom Supersonic gears up to commercialize their aircraft production, they realized that they need a robust ERP to execute their end-to-end business processes with SOX compliance. This ERP transformation needed to be delivered quickly to handle the volume and reporting requirements of their rapidly growing business.

No stranger to speed, BOOM partnered with Cognitus, an SAP Gold Partner recognized as the leader in SAP A&D industry cloud solutions, to move their most critical business applications to the cloud securely, seamlessly and swiftly. Living up to BOOM’s reputation, yet another record was broken, this time in the federal cloud with the fastest RISE with SAP S/4HANA implementation.

Going live within just 3 months, this implementation broke records both in its speed of deployment as well as features and functionalities, covering all finance modules including project systems, asset accounting and lease accounting as well as purchasing modules with complex approval metrics and segregation of duties using GRC.

Co-Innovated with SAP, Cognitus’ Cloud Industry Solution for Aerospace & Defense (CIS-AD) enhances the recording, reporting, compliance and audit capabilities of SAP S/4HANA so that A&D companies like BOOM Supersonic remain SOX compliant in all processes from bidding to billing all the way to contract close out.

Traditionally, meeting contract lifecycle requirements demands expensive and time-consuming custom engineering and development. CIS-AD with its pre-built templates speeds up development and integration with SAP S/4HANA. A&D organizations can execute their complex end to end business processes, automate their compliance requirements and be up and running faster than ever.
