T-Systems Expands Cloud Computing: 10 Million SAPS From the Cloud

- Two thirds of all SAP transactions as cloud computing

ROCHESTER HILLS, Mich., Oct. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- T-Systems is expanding its leading position in cloud computing: The ICT service provider now supplies 10 million SAPS (SAP Application Performance Standards) from the cloud, which accounts for around two thirds of all SAP transactions. This makes the "Dynamic Services for SAP" solution the most successful one in the cloud portfolio.

"With cloud computing, companies place great emphasis on availability and security. This is why so many of our international customers rely specifically on our solutions from highly secure data centers in Germany," said Olaf Heyden, T-Systems director responsible for data centers and networks. More than 100 companies - including Shell, MAN SE and Linde - currently purchase their SAP applications from T-Systems via the Internet as required.

The SAPS index is determined using an SAP standard application benchmark and renders SAP system performance measurable: SAPS shows how many process steps an SAP system processes per time unit. To compare, Deutsche Telekom uses a T-Systems solution with a capacity of 166,000 SAPS. With this solution, the system posts 1.5 million invoices every day, processes the corresponding payments and manages almost nine billion archived documents.

In July, SAP AG globally certified T-Systems' cloud services based on their high degree of automation and integration. This makes the Deutsche Telekom subsidiary one of the first providers to offer its "Dynamic Services for SAP Solutions" within a cloud environment certified by SAP.

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer.

There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
