WFT completes audit of 120,000-employee multinational

WFT completes audit of 120,000-employee multinational

Conducted following client request as a result of risks and costs

Infrastructure solutions provider, Wharfedale Technologies (WFT), has completed its implementation of an SAP managed services application audit for an undisclosed client which has reduced the costs of maintaining the application.

The SAP BASIS audit was requested by the customer, which is a global manufacturer of aerospace products, control technologies, and specialty materials with 120,000 employees across 100 countries.

The request was made on the back of an increase in incidents of SLA violation, a growing number of unplanned down times, large unbudgeted increase in operational costs, inflexibility and lack of scalability, and unplanned delay in new project roll-outs and modifications.

The audit involved teams of informants and meetings with managed services managers, and the evaluation of high availability configuration and disaster recovery fail-over configuration to validate the customer SLAs as well as recovery point objective (RPO) and recovery time objective (RTO) requirements.

Based on the information it received, WFT analysed and performed a landscape design and operational procedure review to create a GAP analysis and risk mitigation report for any single point of failure.

A recommendation report was delivered to the customer on how to improve the customer SAP basis operations SLAs.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
