SAPPphire & SAP World Tour common themes

AMM Blog / 21. July 2010

After talking to numerous clients from various industry backgrounds with a diverse set of SAP systems, a common discussion topic kept appearing:

‘we need to reduce the number of SAP instances, the number of systems (modules) duplicating the same business processes, reduce the complexity of the interfaces between these systems & standardise on the SAP versions’.

What became apparent is the complexity some clients have to operate & manage a business with these IT systems.  The need to reduce ongoing operating expenditure & increase the flexibility and agility of business driven system changes, was a key priority for many people.

These issues can be addressed by a modernisation process of harmonisation & consolidation … utilising a structured methodology to assess, design & then implement a set of consolidation projects to deliver the following:

  • Harmonize applications and platforms onto industry recognized standards.
  • This will drive down the complexity of AMS support services.
  • Reduce licensing & operating costs, with fewer providers to manage.
  • Allow more efficient collaboration of business processes across departments & companies – increasing business change agility & flexibility.
  • Reduce the compliance & security risks of unsupported environments & platforms.
  • Specific technology solutions such as SAP SNP – and other market leading consolidation tools.
  • Enables a move to ‘Dynamic hosted’ services.

These Modernisation projects are sometimes viewed as a ‘business risk’ but with T-Systems experience in SAP H&C projects, coupled with market leading tools, the benefits of change will out way the risks.

Kind regards
