One Step Closer to Your Business Transformation

In times where technology and new solutions are arising faster than ever and business requirements are changing, IT has risen from its former supporting role to an active role in driving business transformation. But how do you achieve a closer alignment between your IT and business strategy when you are in over your head in managing the current landscape?

Application Management Services – SAP AMS were created to change this:

As recent studies* show, IT teams and decision makers are being held up by repetitive tasks – ones that keep the boat afloat but don’t move it further up the river. IT decision makers state that they spent too much time on the following operations:

  • 66% Managing IT-Infrastructure
  • 49% Development and Maintenance of Internal IT-Apps
  • 31% Helpdesk Tasks for Colleagues

Application Management Services were built to save time and resources that these routine operations occupy. SAP AMS reduce your operational workload significantly – to give you back the freedom you need to innovate and to transform your business into an intelligent enterprise!

*we asked 400 CEO’s, CIO’s and decision makers about the daily tasks that bog them down the most.

Built for You, with Expertise, for Tomorrow!

Transform your business by using our Application Management Services!

Rising pressure on diverse IT landscapes demands that CIOs operate their IT in a more agile way.

More Efficient IT Operations Are the Foundation for Your Progress

As a CIO, you know that innovation requires freedom: You strive to transform your own role from being a manager of day-to-day IT operations to setting a vision for your company’s technological future. But while you’re on your way to becoming this visionary who transforms a company, these everyday operational tasks don’t just vanish. In fact, with local IT landscapes expanding into private and public clouds, operating these application landscapes has become a challenge. Business processes stretch across on-premises applications, cloud services from the different hyperscalers like AWS, Azure or GCP and SaaS applications like SAP Ariba, SAP Fieldglass or SAP SuccessFactors. Making sure that this hybrid IT landscape and corresponding business processes works stable, cost-efficient and performs in the most productive way requires broad knowledge across the solutions and seamless end-to-end monitoring.

Staying efficient in the IT operations management and having the freedom to make valuable decisions at the same time is possible with the help of our Application Management Services. We can be your trusted partner who manages your IT infrastructure and who provides you with insights into performance, uptime and security metrics. With our assistance, you can drastically reduce costs while gaining a more reliable and productive IT environment.

Application Integration Lifts Your Entire Business to the Next Level

In the age of digitalization, you already know that application integration means much more than just making sure that your local system, applications and diverse range of cloud-platforms are perfectly connected. In fact, integration is about creating an alignment between the strategic mindset of your company, the employees that work for you and the most suitable technologies and applications that you integrate into your business. Achieving this alignment is a first step toward transforming your business into an intelligent enterprise. But executing this initial step is a big challenge where you have to find answers for many questions: What kind of talent do you need to grow your business in the age of digitalization? How do you ensure that your employees have constant access to the most efficient solutions? How do you complement your internal staff with external partners in the most effective way? Can you adapt your IT environment quickly when new technologies or market opportunities emerge?

A lot of questions to keep in mind. But there’s good news: Application Management Services delivered by an experienced partner can be the single solution that you need to answer all these questions. Feel free to speak to us!

Establish the IT department as the enabler for business innovation.

Innovation is the Key Factor for Growth and Success

In times of digitalization, companies need to constantly deal with new technologies, products and services as well as rising expectations and shorter reaction times. Not to mention new disruptive competition. CIO’s need to maintain an application and system landscape that enables digital initiatives, drives analytics and insights, and operates at an optimized level. Outdated technologies, legacy systems and processes grown historically over many years can be a barrier to achieving expected results from digital technology initiatives.

Driven by the challenge to safeguard the landscape and reduce operation costs while also bringing business innovation forward, the requirement for a strategic partnership with a trusted partner arises. One who understands your business, current state-of-the-art application landscape but also can deliver business value from new technologies.

Constantly turning innovative solutions into productive results can be even more challenging and is solely accessible when your current IT landscape offers the right conditions and insertion points. You can only achieve this, if you don’t have to supervise several external partners and always keep a huge number of contracts and SLAs under control.

Our Application Management Services were built to assist you with this challenge: You gain a competent SAP AMS partner, efficiency and freedom as well as a new driver for continuous optimization and innovation, which is essential for converting new ideas into successful solutions.

How Application Management Services Give You the Freedom to Innovate

Thanks to technologies such as the SAP Business Technology Platform, you can create custom innovations as quickly as users and markets demand them. But are your system landscape and software development processes prepared for this challenge? What are the technologies, frameworks and tools you need in order to expand on your hybrid IT environment?

We analyze your current IT infrastructure and give you clear recommendations on how to optimize your IT environment.To further foster innovation within your company, we integrate Idea and Innovation Management in our day-to-day operations and also facilitate collaboration on basis of focused innovation workshops. Our accelerating Innovation Consulting supports in identifying the right tools and methods. The result is an optimized cloud development strategy that lets you react faster to new market demands and employee requirements. The result is a cost-effective innovation process for your company.

DevOps play a major part in this, since traditional development methods aren’t suited for digital business. We offer workshops on how to bring development and operations teams together. We define scope and strategy for your project and help you execute it. Feel free to innovate!

IT is the Foundation for Your Business Innovation
