Sanofi-Aventis Deutschland GmbH, Frankfurt (Germany)
Sanofi-Aventis is a leading, global pharmaceutical company, which researches, develops, and sells therapeutic solutions. Sanofi-Aventis is listed on the stock-market in Paris (EURONEXT: SAN) and New York (NYSE: SNY). Sanofi-Aventis Deutschland GmbH commissioned VMS to initially benchmark and then monitor its SAP ERP and SAP BW systems.
Since the initial benchmark, the performance data of the systems was continuously measured, and at the same time, individual transactions were measured, in terms of cost. The hosting costs were reduced by 20 percent as part of the original analysis. Continuous monitoring of the systems helps to recognize potential for improvement in the performance and in system use.
“We are very happy with VMS, because they respond fast to questions and support us in a very unbureaucratic way.”
Andreas Langsdorf, Head of IS SAP Services Germany, Sanofi-Aventis Deutschland GmbH
