In today’s competitive landscape, businesses need more than just a one-size-fits-all software solution. They need a tailored approach that meets their specific needs, especially regarding scaling, cost-efficiency, and compliance. VistaVu Solutions recently added a new client, Sidus Space, demonstrating the power of a multi-disciplinary approach, combining business acumen with technological expertise to offer solutions via SAP’s S4Hana Public Cloud.
Sidus Space (NASDAQ: SIDU) is a Space and Data-as-a-Service satellite company focused on mission-critical hardware manufacturing; multi-disciplinary engineering services; satellite design, production, launch planning, mission operations; and in-orbit support. The company has a mission of Bringing Space Down to Earth and a vision of enabling space flight heritage status for new technologies while delivering data and predictive analytics to domestic and global customers.
The first step towards a successful engagement was a deep dive into understanding Sidus Space’s specific requirements. Given the industry’s stringent regulations, the aerospace and defense company had intricate compliance needs. The VistaVu team played a crucial role in understanding the customer’s current state, requirements, and growth path, taking a consultative approach. They also paid attention to the customer’s manufacturing needs, from costing to visibility.
SAP’s suite of business solutions provided the ideal framework for addressing Sidus Space’s diverse needs. Initially, the discussion revolved around an S4 Private Cloud due to the unique compliance requirements, particularly ITAR (International Traffic in Arms Regulations). However, SAP’s flexibility in offering both private and public cloud solutions allowed VistaVu to guide Sidus Space toward a more cost-effective yet fully compliant S4 Public Cloud solution.
One of the standout strategies employed was what the VistaVu team calls the “crawl, walk, run” approach. This method entails a phased rollout of the SAP system, giving Sidus Space time to adapt to the new software without overwhelming them with too many features at once. The team is acting as true consultants, assisting Sidus Space in both business and technical aspects as they transition smoothly through the phases.
No solution can be effectively implemented without a cohesive team. VistaVu leveraged its in-house talent, as well as SAP value advisors and technical consultants, to offer a rounded solution. There was an emphasis on engaging with value advisors early in the sales cycle, as early involvement ensured the crafting of a comprehensive business case that addressed all of Sidus Space’s pain points, aligning closely with their key performance indicators.
VistaVu’s partnership with Sidus Space showcases a nuanced approach to client engagement, blending technological solutions with real-world business strategy. SAP’s suite of solutions was integral to the deal, offering the flexibility and scalability Sidus Space needed. VistaVu’s consultative approach and multi-disciplinary team ensured that Sidus Space didn’t just receive a software solution but a strategic partner in their growth journey.
VistaVu’s is commited to delivering custom-tailored, effective, practical solutions for our clients.
