Benefits of SAP Application Management

 

One of the major benefits of SAP is that it is also highly customizable. The customization can be performed by highly skilled professionals known as SAP developers.

SAP is very powerful. But it is also a complex system that requires management of not only the software but also the hardware and network that are required to support the deployment.

When businesses choose to deploy SAP, they have two options: deploy an on-premise solution or a cloud-based solution. The customization and support can be handled by in-house teams or can be outsourced.

 

Why Outsource to Pronix SAP Services?

 

Some of the main reasons why you should outsource any SAP services to Pronix Digital Application Specialists are as follows:

  • Efficiency: offloading workload to someone else enables businesses to focus on their core capabilities.
  • Expertise: at times, it is difficult to find resources with the required depth and breadth of experience. Training in-house resources can be expensive and time-consuming and is no substitute for experience. In such situations, it is convenient, cost-effective, and less risky to opt for external experts who possess the required experience and can hit the ground running.
  • Lower cost:
    • HR: as outsourcing can be done on an as-needed basis, outsourcing is often less expensive compared to maintaining in-house resources.
    • Infrastructure: hosted solutions are less expensive as the capital expenditure (CAPEX), and hardware upgrade costs are avoided.
    • Support: service providers with expertise in support services can leverage their experience to resolve issues faster, leading to higher system availability and productivity and minimization of expense/loss caused by system outages.
  • Faster Deployment: going for a hosted solution and hiring external consultants enables fast and efficient deployment compared to developing in-house infrastructure and teams.
  • Flexibility: businesses can select from multiple outsourcing models and options.

Outsourcing Models

 

Based on their needs, businesses can select from different outsourcing models:

  • Staff augmentation: the business maintains full control and only gets outsourced support for ad-hoc requirements resulting from periods of increased workloads such as those experienced during upgrades and migrations.
  • Co-sourcing: the business and outsourcing partner share responsibility for SAP services and support.
  • Managed services: support is fully outsourced to Pronix IT outsourcing services and guaranteed through service level agreements (SLA).

 

Service Provider Selection Criteria

 

Several important criteria should be considered when selecting an outsourcing partner.

Expertise

The most important criterion for selecting a service provider is expertise. Whether you are looking to outsource infrastructure, development, technical support, or any other service, the service provider with the best reputation, the best team, and the best experience will likely deliver the desired level of service.

Alignment

Expertise isn’t enough. The service provider also needs to align with the needs of the business. This means understanding the business needs, the inter-departmental transactions, and the culture.

Certifications

Certifications are evidence of knowledge and training. SAP also offers associate, specialist, and professional level certifications for its products. Service providers that have team members with appropriate and up-to-date certifications will be able to offer a higher level of service.

Future-proof

The needs of a business evolve over time.  A business that is looking to deploy some SAP modules today might need to deploy different SAP modules in the near future. Or a business that today requires help with SAP deployment might require support services in the near future. Therefore, it is advisable to work with a service provider that can not only satisfy current needs but can also satisfy the future needs of a growing business.
