Cloud Migration – Migration of SAP ECC to AWS

About Client

A global construction group achieved savings in CAPEX close to USD 0.3 Million with CCS’s optimized SAP migration to AWS.

Business Requirement

The client is a leading construction group across the Middle East and African countries, with some of their projects going on to become iconic landmarks in Oman and Qatar.

The client has been using SAP as ERP along with Oracle DB for the past 6 years and has seen a significant increase in data volumes, in-line with their rapid business growth. They also used SAP DMS extensively as they deal with a massive volume of documents. Their IT Infrastructure catering to SAP had almost reached its EOL with degradation in application performance over the years that impacted their work efficiency.

The client approached CCS with a need for faster reports and upgrading to HANA as a part of their IT roadmap.

CCS Solution

CCS performed a gap analysis of the client’s existing IT landscape and outlined the business priorities before recommending Cloud. CCS evaluated both AWS and Azure to identify the most suited provider that could meet the client’s priorities. AWS emerged as the preferred choice as it ticked the client’s most desired objectives cost-effectively. We migrated the entire SAP landscape with zero downtime from on-premises to AWS Cloud and fine-tuned it further for optimal performance.
