    Expanding SAP landscape outgrows existing capabilities

    Over time, the team found its existing setup didn’t meet the needs of the expanding SAP landscape. Complexity mushroomed, requiring extra staff resources maintain increasingly interconnected systems. The more the company grew, the more features and functions they needed to integrate into their existing configuration. It wasn’t long before the company’s administrative burden became unwieldy. 

    Recognizing the need for an efficient, comprehensive monitoring solution, the SAP Basis Services Team decided to establish an internal task force to evaluate an entirely new monitoring system.

    Team seeks to simplify SAP system management

    “We wanted a solution that enabled system administration and configuration from one centralized location,” says Belz Koch, Head of SAP Basis Services for Migros. “We also wanted to establish an early alert system that would minimize the chance of emergencies.”

    Ultimately, Avantra was the winner. Not only was it specifically developed for companies working with SAP systems, it met virtually all of the company’s requirements.

We also wanted an early alert system can be established so that there won’t be a chance for emergencies ever to happen. Avantra does it all” says Koch.
