Airbus Defence and Space Optronics using SAP S/4HANA

Airbus Defence & Space Optronics GmbH (Airbus DS Optronics) is now using SAP SE´s (NYSE: SAP) SAP Business Suite 4 SAP HANA (SAP S/4HANA) software, the company said.

As the first division within Airbus Group to go live with SAP S/4HANA, Airbus DS Optronics expects to increase the efficiency of its financial and controlling processes.

The system conversion to SAP S/4HANA as Airbus DS Optronics´ digital core marks a major milestone within the group´s financial digitalization initiative. As part of the project, SAP HANA replaced the database previously used by the company.

The new solution helps increase the efficiency of financial and controlling processes, and represents a move toward an end-to-end, fully digital financial process.

The project, including system conversion, was completed by SAP Consulting in less than five months. Airbus DS Optronics is now well positioned for the start of the 2016 financial year, and the company plans to expand SAP S/4HANA as its digital core to other areas of the business in 2016.
