SQS outsources SAP and corporate network to Pironet NDH

World market leader for software tests and quality assurance puts faith in Pironet NDH's Business Cloud

(PresseBox) (Köln-Porz, ) SQS Software Quality Systems, the largest independent provider of software tests and quality assurance in the world, has relocated its SAP environment to the Business Cloud of Pironet NDH. Some 400 users at SQS work with the solution based on SAP ERP at various locations in different countries. In addition, Pironet NDH supplies eight international SQS locations with a corporate network. Uniform Service Level Agreements (SLAs) which ensure SQS universal availability of 99.5 per cent apply for all services and locations. This is the case both for the availability of the SAP systems and also for the network connection.

Costs reduced by around one third

Relocating to the Business Cloud means that for SAP services and the corporate network SQS achieves better operating reliability and failsafe performance than previously with the inhouse network it operated. At the same time the software test specialist profits from uniform high availability at all integrated locations. SQS is also able to make considerable savings on costs: "Via the Pironet NDH network, we connect locations using the same bandwidth as before and have additional backup routes. In this way, we will reduce our costs in the long term by 34 per cent and the bottom line is that we will obtain a better service for less money," sums up René Gawron, Chief Financial Officer at SQS.

Worldwide availability round the clock

SQS employs the SAP modules FI (Financials), CO (Controlling), MM (Materials Management), HR (Human Resources), BI (Business Intelligence) and SD (Sales and Distribution). Special technical features include Linux as the operating system for the SAP application and the IBM DB2 database which is used. "The ERP systems form the economic heart of our IT. They handle all the main tasks, such as time data collection, travel expenses, accounting and invoicing. As the SAP modules need to be available round the clock for worldwide access, the outsourcing made sense," explains Christian Emonts, IT Country Manager Germany at SQS.

Pironet NDH optimised the failsafe performance of the new corporate network by providing backup links for all connections. At the SQS headquarters in Cologne Pironet NDH implemented the backup connection with a radio relay solution and WLL (Wireless Local Loop) technology.
