About the Project

Fiberglass for the sky

Mynaric AG is an innovative startup company from the aerospace sector. Through years of development, Mynaric has found solutions to revolutionize current network infrastructure and connectivity worldwide. The laser communication terminals directly link moving objects, such as satellites or aircraft, using a laser beam to enable wireless data transmission at high data rates and over long distances. This form of communication marks a major milestone in aerospace in several aspects. With this technology, Mynaric is heralding the start of a new era in communications and is proving this not least with a large number of noteworthy customers. This big step in the development of new, innovative technology also requires Mynaric to invest on the IT side and to make its own systems secure and innovative.

Ready for new requirements

As a pioneer in the aerospace industry, Mynaric also decided to become a first mover in the SAP world and was one of the first customers to choose SAP S/4HANA Private Cloud Edition (PCE). With this step, Mynaric shows that they recognize the added value of future-proof and sustainable IT and also focus on it despite a large investment decision. After all, this is how rapid growth and strong dynamics in the market can be managed and the move to the cloud can be driven forward. The complex requirements and the desire for agility and reliability of the IT system led to the decision to go down this path together with NTT DATA Business Solutions and SAP.

Stable day-to-day business with innovative IT

The Private Cloud Edition combines the scalability and scope of an on-premise system with the benefits and flexibility of a SaaS solution. One of the most important conditions for the implementation of SAP S/4HANA PCE was that day-to-day business and dynamic growth should not be jeopardized by the conversion. The increased requirements due to the US IPO (initial public offering) in November 2021 also had to be taken into account. In addition, production faces complex challenges, as capacity must be significantly increased while ensuring transparency over processes. With these and several other requirements for scalability and flexibility, the project team started the implementation of the new solution. The initial focus was to find a setup that would allow the complex IT project requirements, international expansion and at the same time scalability of production. The introduction of SAP S/4HANA was implemented within the framework of SAP Best Practices and could be put live after almost 6 months.

With big steps into the world

In addition, other solutions were deployed to support international growth and day-to-day business. In addition to the planned roll-out of S/4HANA PCE in the USA, SAP GTS also supports global growth by automating global trade processes. In addition, an Own IP of NTT DATA is used for mass checking of sales tax identification numbers in SAP. Mynaric receives support for these solutions in the form of NextGen Application Management Services from NTT DATA Business Solutions.
