Capgemini UK have just successfully delivered the companies first UK total SAP solution in the AWS cloud for a global Specialty Chemical company.A new customer to Capgemini, they had previously not used SAP but their most recent and largest acquisition to date operated SAP which generated the need for a full SAP implementation. The aim of the project was to deploy SAP Business Suite on HANA on AWS cloud services to accommodate their latest acquisition. Timescales were tight but the flexibility of AWS enabled a rapid time-to-market and for the functional teams to create the required business processes.
From their site at Ellesmere Port, across the River Mersey from Liverpool, Capgemini in conjunction with AWS designed and delivered on time and on budget a four-environment complex SAP Business Suite on HANA solution with integrated interfaces across multiple AZs in the Central European Region. A fully configured network, including a dedicated VPC using database replication across AZs, supporting a highly fault tolerant and performant SAP landscape with flexibility to further scale up when required in the future.
Post go-live and the solution has proven to be a success, with an average SAP ECC dialogue response time of around 200ms far exceeding the SAP benchmark of 1s, and the customer already realizing the potential of SAP and looking to further exploit the benefits of SAP in conjunction with Capgemini.
