Application Management & Modernization: Outsourcing plus IT modernization
Application Management & Modernization (AMM) stands for industrialized application management for SAP®, Non-SAP and custom software plus IT modernization. In the past, the huge task of managing highly complex IT environments has prevented IT departments from upgrading them. Skilled, professional-quality AMM reduces maintenance effort for legacy application environments, freeing up time and money to tackle the modernization backlog.
AMM is a complete suite of services, encompassing analysis, planning, transition, ongoing operations and modernization. This includes support, maintenance and optimization of enterprise applications across their entire lifecycle. Read all about this outsourcing offering in the AMM factsheet.
The goal is to radically reduce complexity, improve process quality, and bring costs down even further.
The White Paper shows that these AMM services are a key component of a comprehensive modernization model that combines cutting costs through the industrialization of IT services with the creation of new value through innovation. AMM White paper
Which scenarios offer the greatest potential for in-memory-computing (SAP HANA)? Forecasting + Simulation Forecasting Simulation 46% Reporting 44% ERP 10% Clearly, reporting is the main battlefield of HANA: However, forecasting and simulation play an ever increasing role. Simulations portray the greatest challenge due to resulting complex logic, which is especially true against the backdrop of big data volumes created by simulations. Simulation automotive: When a car manufacturer designs a new prototype, it has to undergo a number of crash test scenarios. Those crash tests (mimicking what happens if the engine cowling is made of carbon or aluminum? Could the driver lose an arm? etc.) are extremely expensive as most prototypes are handmade. Hence, car crash tests are more affordably computer simulated; today’s simulation software offers 96% accuracy. Therefore, only 2 out of 10 real crash tests have to be carried out. Simulation food industry: Research suggests logistic costs are 75% of food related article prices … MoreGo to AMM blog

Application management: Leverage pay-per-use models and reduce fixed costs
Application Management & Modernization reduces costs by some 25 percent. This is achieved through highly industrialized application management and a best-shoring approach that finds the ideal combination of onsite, nearshore and offshore elements. Companies cut costs through pay-per-use billing. A core component of the offering is a catalog of services with unit prices, e.g. per ticket. This frees up resources for IT modernization initiatives ranging from upgrades to end-to-end consolidation. The bottom line: improved business-process productivity and agility, promising further savings potential.
