The VMS Report was first used at HVB Systems as early as 2003, with a targeted analysis of SAP HR (Human Resources). Since 2005, the entire SAP landscape, with over 10 system lines, has been continually optimized using the VMS Report and the VMS Monitor. As a part of that, VMS analyzes “classical” SAP R/3 applications and new SAP applications for the banking sector, such as Bank Analyzer.
“Before VMS, we knew of no way to get a realistic view of our SAP landscape, all the interfaces that connect downstream and upstream systems to it, and all the various smaller SAP products that go along with that. VMS’s adaptive TCO model mastered that task very well.
VMS’s analyses were very detailed, and clearly identified what buttons to push, so to speak, to begin the optimization measures. In addition, the VMS benchmark ensured that our specific SAP landscape, from the Bank Analyzer to the administrative functions such as HR, time accounting, FI, CO, and on to BW would be taken into account.”
Wolfgang Pfeiffer, Head of Team SAP Basic Components, HVB Information Services GmbH
“Even the initial benchmarking round brought results that justified the entire project, from an economic point of view. Along with the results, there were also a lot of concrete suggestions in detail, which spurred on the individual working groups and teams.
We also see a lot of long-term advantage in the use of VMS for planning SAP projects. For that reason, we will regularly carry out VMS benchmarking.
My team and I view working with VMS as being very good and very partner-like. The quality of constructive, intensive dialogue continuously underscores for us that we are dealing with professionals.”
