Digitization with SAP from the cloud

Market cycles are getting shorter and companies need to make critical business decisions more quickly: real-time processes is the buzzword here. However, that often means that companies need to modify their SAP landscape. Dynamic Services for SAP Solutions now provide companies with systems and services from the cloud at short notice and in line with their current needs – ensuring high availability, low costs and maximum security.
As a result, companies are able to generate scales of economy and lower their costs. Simplified processes with Dynamic Services for SAP Solutions minimize the risk of system failure. Customers can add and cancel servers automatically as needed. Pooling resources means considerably lower operating costs compared to traditional operating models.

Up to 30 percent lower operating costs

Dynamic Services for SAP Solutions also lowers operating costs by up to 30 percent because companies no longer need to maintain extra capacity to cover peak loads. So companies only have to pay for the resources they actually use. This tailored form of billing minimizes investment risks. T-Systems and SAP are also working on innovations like Dynamic Services for SAP HANA® or Mobile Solutions. New deployment models transfer the solutions either to the public cloud or to a combination of private and public cloud. This makes SAP operation easier and even more cost-effective and yet it remains secure.

Uncompromising security and quality

Dynamic Services for SAP Solutions benefit from constantly updated security solutions from T-Systems’ data centers, offering the maximum possible levels of data security and data privacy. If required, customer systems are mirrored in the secure twin-core data centers (99.7% availability at system level, up to 99.9% availability at platform level).
