Challenged by long query times and disruptive delays, Network Services Company (NETWORK) knew that upgrading to the latest technology was critical both to their success and that of their customers. SAP HANA was the clear choice for NETWORK, but lacking in-house expertise, it was clear the company would need outside help. After an extensive analysis, itelligence proved to be the right partner for NETWORK, bringing unmatched migration experience along with deep SAP HANA expertise to the project.
While moving to SAP HANA was a natural next step for NETWORK, shifting away from the company’s standard on-premise approach was not under consideration at the project’s outset. However, in planning the migration, NETWORK’s leadership realized the value they could unlock through the cloud. Moving to the itelligence SAP Managed Cloud would give NETWORK the ability to spread the investment out over time as an operating cost, as opposed to a one-time expense. In turn, this shift in expenditure would afford new cash flow advantages, while also meeting disaster recovery requirements.
Since the migration to SAP HANA, NETWORK has enjoyed major performance boosts including expedited report generation and execution and more than 30 TB of tier-one storage has been freed up and redeployed. As well, the move from SQL Server to BW on SAP HANA has driven 90 percent faster query times, enabling NETWORK employees to make faster decisions and focus on value-added activities. These improvements have contributed to stronger overall productivity, and the company is ahead of the curve thanks to the upgrade.
