The Panaya and Cognitus partnership comes in response to the increasing demand of organizations for SAP S/4HANA implementations projects. This will leverage both Panaya’s and Cognitus’ ability to assist businesses with advanced technology and consulting expertise for more efficient and risk-free SAP S/4HANA migration projects.
