SAP Backup Services

How we reduced the routine activities of an operations department by 60%.


Our challenge

Backup and archiving for system landscapes in 27 countries

In detail

Our success story

One of our customers operates backup and archiving for a large number of data objects for one of the top 3 retail groups in Europe. This includes a high three-digit number of SAP instances. The customer operations department spent 80% of their daily work on routine tasks. Because this was not enough to maintain operations, it was supported by external temporary workers. There was hardly any time left for necessary automation, optimization measures, and strategic planning. At this point, wescaleIT was asked if and how we could help. The department was given a container with a few members. Step by step, 1st & 2nd level support was transferred to the container along with process documents. With each service object that was handed over, the share of routine activities of the customer operations department decreased.

There was no loss in quality or speed of execution at any time. All activities that were integrated from the container into the service were seamlessly integrated into the existing processes. As the number of transferred service objects grew, so did the container.

In the meantime, all service objects have been transferred. The operations department now only carries out a maximum of 20% of routine activities, which means that temporary workers are no longer needed. Our customer was able to halve costs with the help of the wescaleIT container. Preparatory work is underway with the aim of handing over more complex services to the container, including participation in strategic planning.
