"The same effort that took us months with the other systems. Within that week, we had no false positives, it was all very stable. It just worked beautifully.”
How were operations run before Avantra?
Paz Oil had been using Solution Manager and another third party software company to monitor SAP. This ad hoc approach was over-complicated and involved a lot of unnecessary manual work. Costly trial and error, false positives and tedious reconfigurations left system security vulnerabilities.
How did Avantra improve SAP operations?
Introducing yet another solution to an already complex SAP landscape is not always appealing. There is a chance it might cause yet another complication and disrupt business. Not with Avantra. Within half a day Paz’s systems were up and running smoothly on Avantra.
Following an SAP system error, Paz experienced a high compliance impacting failure. Every minute of downtime like this can cause big disruptions to supply chains. Fortunately, when this mission critical file went missing, the team could rely on Avantra to create and run a quick custom check, alert the right people and get things sorted, fast.
No Repeat Errors
Within an hour of Paz’s costly system outage, it was business as usual again. Now that the team has the custom check in place, Paz can be sure that this crisis won’t happen again.
Stronger System Security
Avantra’s automated, real-time security discovered the use of default passwords in some of Paz’s clients, leaving them open to massive security threats. Fortunately, Avantra’s immediate configuration change feedback had them covered and immediately flagged the vulnerability.
Without clear insights into resources, Paz’s Basis teams were kept in reactive mode, constantly fixing slowed down and halted systems. Avantra put an end to that. Predictive analysis of Paz’s past resource utilization offers accurate forecasting, letting Paz know what it needs, before it needs it. Within just a few months, Avantra had paid for itself allowing staff to focus on the more important tasks and innovation.
