Helping Northrop Grumman save 25% of their time through digital transformation

Client Stories: Northrop Grumman

Northrop Grumman is a global aerospace, defense and security company. The majority of its business is with the U.S. government, principally the Department of Defense and intelligence community. In addition, it delivers solutions to global and commercial customers. It has 95,000 staff and its annual revenue is over $30bn.



“With Cora, we can easily understand what we committed to delivering to our customers, statement by statement, and tracking that against the cost that we’re incurring to execute. That’s empowering future bids, and ultimately helping to execute the staffing process – how you staff people to demand, ensuring we have that traceability to determine if we have the capacity to deliver on all of our projects.”

Ryan Godfrey, Director of Business Management, Digital Transformation, Northrop Grumman



Challenges Northrop Grumman faced

  • Required an integrated project scheduling platform that could unify its disparate business processes across 4 separate business units, replacing Oracle Primavera, Planview, Clarizen, Smartsheet, etc. and other point solutions (PTC, Ansys, etc.)
  • A single, scalable workforce planning solution that would be tightly coupled to this project schedule platform
  • Sought a single source of truth – a single system of record, a single decision support platform that would provide integrity surrounding every aspect of finance, accounting and cost control


Capabilities Cora brings

  • Meets strict DoD demands around EVM and the DCAA and DCMA requirements
  • Supply chain synchronization
  • Financial controls for all elements of the contracted project (people, assets, materials)
  • UX and ease of use underpins all functionality
  • Flexibility of the product to adapt to business processes and methodologies



  • 3,000 employees save 25% of their time to be able to do other activities
  • Allows all reporting to both government and investors to be rolled up from a single platform
  • Low code, no code, enabling Northrop Grumman to control its own destiny
  • Measure benefit delivery against target and baseline values
