SAP business applications are critical to many organizations throughout India. But as SAP technology proliferates and is customized throughout the enterprise, complexity increases. The issue is only compounded as businesses grow and change, and many business leaders wonder where and how it will end.
The ever-upward spiral of complexity in an SAP environment can lead to multiple business costs:
|SAP complexity||Business cost|
|Absorbs a large number of skilled workers||Fewer resources available for innovation and strategic projects|
|Leads to slow provisioning and service delivery times||Reduces agility|
|Creates an inflexible, difficult-to-scale enterprise||Doesn't support business growth|
|Hinders visibility between various SAP applications and instances||Limits ability to control and optimize service quality|
|Requires increasing amounts of time and money to manage and maintain||Increases total cost of ownership (TCO)|
Easing the burden
Moving your SAP applications to a managed cloud service can help you halt the spiral of complexity and ease your business burden. The best managed cloud services for SAP on the cloud enable you to:
