Helped the client obtain cost-efficiency and avoid incoming hardware refresh costs, while boosting the performance with 24/7 availability
About the Client
The client is a leading American cloud computing company with its headquarters in Santa Clara, California. It is one of the leading ITSM tool providers who helps its customers to manage digital workflows.
The client wanted to create a more efficient customer experience through its SaaS workflow platform for ITSM. The client decided to move its business-critical SAP estate—including 50 essential applications, more than 10 SAP landscapes, 50 database instances, and over 50 terabytes of storage and other IT assets to Microsoft Azure to understand the value they can deliver. Another reason behind the decision to migrate its SAP infrastructure to the cloud environment platform was to attain cost-effectiveness and to avoid the incoming hardware refresh costs in 2020. The performance of the SAP platform and intensive operations were critical and required better administration of infrastructure, dynamic allocation of computing, and 24/7 availability of SAP servers.
Increase availability by reducing major outages due to infrastructure failure, which caused production downtime and adhere to an aggressive business continuity plan with Recovery Point Objective and Recovery Time Objective.
Reduce costs by ramping down huge maintenance of OnPrem, and upcoming (2020) hardware refresh costs.
Boost organizational elasticity by mitigating the failure to provide on-demand capacity and by eliminating slower builds that are not aligned with the business demands
