When switching to SAP S/4HANA with Enterprise Application Integration, users have lots of questions relating to IT architecture and operation:
- What interfaces and functions will be provided for users?
- What are the mobile workflows like?
- What real-time analyses are now possible?
- What will my SAP landscape look like in the future?
- What will I still need from my business warehouses?
- Which applications can I consolidate?
- How do I link the SAP cloud solutions?
- How do I operate the new landscape?
- What can be migrated to which cloud? And what needs to remain on premises?
- What service levels can I expect for SAP Basis and Application Management?
High planning certainty due to fixed prices and standardized methods
Enterprise Application Integration from T-Systems gives companies the certainty that this transformation will be trouble-free – with a transparent procedural model comprising analysis, consultancy, transformation and the operating phase as well as fast, binding results for future planning. Custom consultancy packages with schedules and cost plans show clearly and reliably when a company should migrate which part of SAP and where to – for example to the public, private or hybrid cloud –, what this solution will cost once it is in operation and what solution is best suited to the company’s special business case.
Big data, Hadoop and SAP HANA
Example data integration: How can I combine the fast but expensive HANA technology and its benefits with other big data
solutions such as Hadoop which are cheaper but offer other services? The transformation experts at T-Systems design the optimum analytics landscape for their customers in terms of functionality and costs, implement this landscape at a fixed price as part of a project and take on responsibility for ensuring trouble-free operation (Application Management services) in the T-Systems cloud.
End-to-end responsibility with a look at the big picture
According to McKinsey, thinking in terms of end-to-end solutions plays an essential role in successful digital transformation.3 As a certified SAP global outsourcing partner, T-Systems oversees all SAP applications end to end through to the operation. In technological terms, this means solutions from the network to the source code. For a standardized and secure transformation process, the “Cloudifier” uses a market-leading “fixed price + fixed time” transformation approach which brings technical, financial and timing risks under control. During the business process, T-Systems brings together experts for cross-section processes and industrial experts.
Security, quality and reliability
Data protection and security have the highest priority: as part of Deutsche Telekom, T-Systems and its international subsidiaries maintain the very highest data protection and security standards. The “Zero Outage” quality processes ensure that service promises are kept. Thanks to the TÜV-certified quality program, minimal downtimes and maximum business capability can be achieved. And if customers should nevertheless experience a major incident, they can terminate their Application Management contracts – no ifs or buts. T-Systems also works with carefully selected partners in specific areas, e.g. Virtual Forge, Onapsis, West Trax and SNP.
Another plus of Enterprise Application Integration is multi-provider orchestration: T-Systems knows that customers need to assert themselves in an ecosystem with partners and suppliers. Orchestrating this environment with a service-oriented architecture for the customer is therefore a particularly important service. T-Systems keeps the big picture in mind, can provide details on possible cost savings thanks to fixed price lists and can minimize financial and timing risks for the customer.
