Skoda Auto improves performance and availability with SAP ActiveEmbedded

  1. 1. ŠKODA AUTO: Improving Efficiency and Data Management with Data Volume Management Services and SAP® © 2013 SAP AG or an SAP affiliate company. All rights reserved. With a history that goes back over 100 years, ŠKODA AUTO prides itself on innovation that is “Simply Clever.” From an ice scraper that is stored inside the fuel tank door to safety features like emergency vests under the front seats, ŠKODA AUTO vehicles are designed for utility, efficiency, and performance. And as a company, ŠKODA AUTO demands the same of its business operations, running the SAP® ERP application as its core IT system. But as ŠKODA AUTO grew, so did data volume, presenting database challenges. With the SAP Active Global Support organization and SAP ActiveEmbedded offerings, ŠKODA AUTO launched an archiving project that cut data volume in half and minimized the risk of data loss with faster backup and recovery processes. With data volume management services from SAP, ŠKODA AUTO data storage is as clever as its cars. Picture Credit | ŠKODA AUTO a.s., Mladá Boleslav, Czech Republic. Used with permission.
