Just in Time: From the AS/400 Directly to the Cloud
Arvato Systems migrates the SAP system environment of HANSA-FLEX AG to the cloud, on time and securely
SAP Migration to the Cloud Increases Performance and Lowers Costs
The progress of digitization at HANSA-FLEX and the international service industry demand that the SAP systems of the company be available around the globe – a prerequisite for significantly increasing the operational efficiency.
With the support of Arvato Systems, HANSA- FLEX AG managed to migrate the SAP system environment to the cloud, safely and on time, and to replace the old AS/400 system. The production facility was therefore able to increase its performance and speed – all while reducing operating costs. Together with Arvato Systems, HANSA-FLEX has therefore successfully taken the first step in the realization of its digitization strategy and can now begin working on the additional steps in expanding the strategy.
Flexible and safe hydraulic system solutions are our recipe for success. Constantly maintaining a professional and collaborative partnership, we were able to upgrade our entire in-house SAP operation on a very tight schedule at the end of 2019, convert it to new database technology, and – flexibly and securely in equal measure – migrate it to the Microsoft Azure Cloud. In time, scope, and budget with Arvato Systems who – thanks to the service provided – have also been granted the contract for the managed service of SAP basis administration.
