About Client

A leading Chinese electronic firm manufacturing smartphones and other home electronic devices since 2001.

Business Requirement

Client was running SAP S/4HANA hosted on Azure Cloud for the last 1 year.

They were extremely disappointed with performance and the high cloud consumption charges

Client had considered multiple vendors to provide optimized performance at a lower and more predictable cost on different cloud providers.

CCS was one of the vendors they approached and evaluated to meet their objectives

CCS Solution

CCS studied their existing installation, provided a gap-analysis and presented our recommendations.

CCS team found that the SAP system was not implemented as per best practices on cloud resulting in inconsistent performance and failures.

Cloud sizing was not optimal resulting in higher monthly charges.

CCS installed and configured SAP S/4HANA in AWS and then cut over from Client’s Azure environment to the newly setup AWS environment. This was completed within 2 weeks considering the possible business impact to the Client

CCS ensure landscape was configured and optimized as per AWS and SAP best practices

CCS team did a cutover migration and implemented the optimized setup on AWS.

Business Benefits

CCS was able to bring down the monthly OPEX by almost 60% by optimizing and downsizing the resources and by scheduling service uptimes only for business hours by leveraging automation.

CCS managed the project end-to-end to ensure seamless delivery to client as SAP BASIS, Azure & AWS skills were available under a single service partner.

Client and AWS recognized the capability of CCS to handle SAP workloads and the time taken for project completion set new records.

User experience improved significantly as best practices for SAP S4 HANA on AWS was tuned to each component for optimal performance.
