Technology focus: SAP landscape

From financial transactions to customer information and employee data, your SAP systems hold the most valuable data in your business - making security the cornerstone of any landscape design. With cyber threats ever-evolving and increasing in sophistication, it’s essential to take an enterprise-wide view on cyber security for SAP, establishing an approach that works within the unique nature of your landscape.

An optimised SAP landscape with reduced complexity will deliver considerable financial savings, not only reducing costs on infrastructure and hardware but consequently on associated support services. Hosting your landscape in the cloud reduces a number of overheads to reduce your overall cost of ownership, while easing potential on-premise concerns over downtime and data security

Whether you’re moving your systems to the cloud, maintaining an on-premise footprint or developing a hybrid approach, AgilityWorks helps you make the big decisions to define your landscape architecture strategy and then develop the roadmap to ensure it is fully optimised. And we can help you realign your SAP landscape due to business events such as integrating a recently acquired company, restructuring or process transformation.
