Our solutions at work

NS2 and Mission engineers built the COVID Tracker in support of NS2 Labs. COVID Tracker is a breakthrough tool that exposes COVID-19 trends, patterns, and predictions that could help save lives. It indexes data from global feeds (including the CDC, WHO, John Hopkins, and state-level governments), allowing every person in the world to access information about COVID-19 cases and infection rates. The site provides a variety of visualizations and analytics surrounding the outbreak. As new data becomes available, the team will add additional dashboards and other user experiences for the community explore. The solution is composed of NS2, SAP and Open Source software products and is running within the NS2 Labs environment.

U.S. Navy and other U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) agencies use our solutions to manage their field operations, including detailed supply chain planning and execution. Many of these solutions are hosted by SAP NS2 Secure HANA Cloud. This allows DoD personnel to focus on the tasks where every minute matters in saving lives and protecting the frontline fighters – the medical care givers. Smooth running SAP solutions and systems make a world of difference. During this pandemic, as DoD agencies are working to deliver critical medical supplies, SAP NS2 is an integral part of these efforts to slow down the pandemic.

Our team

SAP NS2 has decided to close all unclassified office spaces. Although our physical office spaces are closed, our team of nearly 1000 staff shows up for work every day – online.  We continue to find ways to support our customers that protect the security and stability of our nation.
