Technical application management

Switching to SAP S/4HANA

The challenge

No SAP management concerns

Avebe’s main administrative business processes run on SAP ECC. Consequently, it is extremely important that SAP never fails. Good hosting and technical management of the SAP landscape are essential. Avebe ICT Director Gijs Bleeker and Functional Application Support Manager Tom Wassink explain how Ctac helps them achieve this.

Bleeker: “Before 2011, another company looked after our hosting and technical SAP management. We felt like we were just a number to them, and we didn’t get the service we were looking for. We also wanted more flexible costs that would adapt to our usage. We didn’t want to have to worry about anything to do with hosting or technical application management.” 

The solution

Flexibility in hosting and technical application management

Bleeker explains that after some serious research into possible new management partners, Avebe eventually chose Ctac. “Ctac offered the best combination of service, price and flexibility. We can now easily upscale or downscale our hosting depending on our use. We can also discuss other issues with them, such as master data management, reporting and integrationCtac takes care of all the hosting and technical application management work. The installation of changes, upgrades, patches and add-ons, facilitating connectivity with other applications… Ctac also guarantees the landscape’s performance and stability. Our production is continuous, so SAP has to be constantly online. That is now the case. It’s a matter of course, like water from a tap. We never get any questions from the business about performance. That in itself says a great deal.”
