Operational productivity gains by efficient SAP infrastructure management

223 views

Published on

To prepare for digital transformation, scalable and easy-to-manage SAP environments with the ability to simplify central monitoring and orchestration of all SAP resources are key. We will evidence how to manage typical challenges such as
• Rising operational costs caused by complex SAP environments running on multiple systems arising from organic growth
• Maintaining a broad technical skill set as a consequence of operating a heterogeneous SAP infrastructure.
• Long implementation cycles and general maintenance activities that require downtime due to partial virtualization
As an outlook, let us investigate how SAP environments evolve in the digital age and how Fujitsu’s Integrated SAP Infrastructure Solutions support Hybrid IT approaches to manage data everywhere.
