Cognex is the world’s leading provider of vision systems, software, sensors, and industrial barcode readers used in manufacturing automation. The company was looking to expand its product selection into more solution- and service-package offerings to create greater value and recurring revenue for customers. To keep up with these growth and business-development plans, Cognex needed to upgrade its 20-year-old ERP system.
Cognex selected SAP S/4HANA for its ERP backbone because of its maturity, stability, and ability to provide cross-functional integration to connect all areas of the business. Working with Capgemini, Cognex implemented SAP S/4HANA with applications hosted on Microsoft Azure. Cognex also uses Capgemini Cloud Platform (CCP) as a single cloud-management system to help the company leverage the efficiency and agility of these cloud solutions.
As a result, Cognex benefits from data that is consolidated and more accurate and accessible, plus tighter integration across the business and a strong digital-core foundation for future growth. According to Doug Curren, Senior Director, Business Applications, at Cognex, “It is powerful to see how S/4HANA can show how changing a business process in one area can have an impact in another, because S/4 is so tightly integrated. We realize the more we talk and communicate, the more we are able to gain control earlier in any change.”
