As a SAP Gold implementation partner, Dimension Data is already imbued with a deep understanding of the impact and value of SAP solutions. Given its longstanding relationship and investment in SAP and SAP clients, it was a natural move to install SAP Focused Run (SAP FRUN), together with SAP AG, into its own SAP Cloud Services.
SAP FRUN uses the full power of SAP HANA as a platform and as a powerful solution to enable service providers, like Dimension Data, to host all its customers in an environment that is central, scalable, safe, and automated. Additionally, it offers a proactive monitoring solution for all SAP HEC and CSfS customer landscapes.
Now that the base installation of Advanced System Management is successfully completed, Dimension Data is looking to commence the process of on-boarding all its SAP HEC and CSfS customers into SAP FRUN. This undertaking will be phased in, with the first phase covering Postbank, Coca-Cola Bottlers Africa, and APL.
Says Chris Dippenaar, Cloud Services for SAP Director at Dimension Data: "We adopted SAP FRUN for Application Operations precisely because it offers an extremely simplified architecture with a small technical footprint and is an uncompromising solution, including streaming, replication, scale-out, predictive analytics and compression.
"The benefit of this Solutions Manager to both Dimension Data and our customers is that it is optimised for high volume systems and application monitoring use cases using the full power of SAP HANA; it allows for a clear separation of different customers with multi-tenancy enablement, and a maximum of automation during assignment and maintenance of managed systems so that we can support thousands of systems in high volume monitoring use cases," says Dippenaar.
Looking ahead, Dimension Data will implement additional SAP FRUN capabilities, including availability management, licence and maintenance certificate management, advanced user monitoring, and advanced integration monitoring, among others.
The successful go-live of SAP Focused Run within Dimension Data's SAP Cloud Services further confirms the company's continued commitment to and investment in SAP solutions. Furthermore, this development ensures it will be able to bring the very best SAP services to market.
