SAP Application Management/ Housekeeping
Maintaining maximum availability of a company’s systems while keeping costs under control is important for any organization but, for smaller businesses, it is critical. Here at AMPEC, we believe that the key to achieving this is preventing issues from occurring rather than fixing the symptoms when they appear.
The secret to achieving this is an approach based on undertaking a combination of proactive system related house-keeping tasks together with an automated alert service where AMPEC’s support team are alerted to the building of a situation before that situation gives rise to a serious issue. The tools provided within SAP’s Solution Manager system are an integral part of the delivered system and are a significant facilitator to achieving this thereby minimizing the cost of owning an SAP system.
AMPEC’s SAP Applications Management service extends our support services to remote system monitoring also through the use of SAP’s Solution Manager.
We undertake daily, weekly and monthly scheduled activities on the system to ensure potential issues are identified before they impact an organization’s business operations.
These services include:
* Ensuring systems are up and running correctly
* Checking for alerts in system monitors
* Checking for hanging or stopped work processes
* Checking system logs for errors
* Reviewing system and database performance
* Database capacity review and planning
* Undertaking any remedial actions as required
Rounding out these activities, we also undertake:
* User security reviews and audits
* User profile and authorization reviews and maintenance
* Testing backup and restore processes
* Data archiving
* Review and testing of disaster recovery procedures
* Hardware and software maintenance contract review
* Applying support packages
* Applying database patches
* Technical upgrades
* Server migration
* As a result of this focus, AMPEC’s system-monitoring and preventative maintenance service is one of our fastest growing services.
