IBM Application Management Services for SAP

The challenge

Improving ROI from your SAP implementation
Organizations that rely on SAP to help run their operations have found that selecting and implementing SAP is only the first step to truly realizing value from an enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution. While many organizations rely on their enterprise applications to keep their business running, they rarely fine tune and adequately manage these applications to realize their true benefits. This leads to excess costs and risk to their operations.

By streamlining processes and outsourcing SAP business activities, your company can gain greater IT flexibility and significant cost savings. The cost savings generated can then be redirected to help boost competitiveness.
