SAP Professional Journal Posts New Case Study - "How a Pharmaceutical Company Reduced Its Business Downtime"

Dedham, MA (PressExposure) July 28, 2011 -- SAPexperts announces a new Case Study, "How a Pharmaceutical Company Reduced Its Business Downtime" available in their SAP Professional Journal Expert knowledgebase.

This Case Study focuses on a pharmaceutical company that implemented much cheaper conventional methods instead of near zero downtime (NZDT) in order to be able to stay within its maximum tolerable business downtime. Conventional methods are provided through SAP standard tools that are either delivered within a product such as SAP R/3 or SAP ERP Central Component, or obtained through SAP.

In this case study, you will learn the strategies around implementing conventional methods that helped this company to greatly minimize the effects of software maintenance and modernization and avoid commonly imposed outages. Walk through various recommendations, including how they were assisted with a twin upgrade and Unicode conversion (TU&UC) and how they solved performance issues.

Bob Croce, product director of SAPexperts comments, "Restrictions to system availability is detrimental to any company; it is imperative to decrease down time. This case study will show you how it can be done successfully by using conventional methods."

The Case Study is written by Mara Meyer, Service Architect, SAP, and Oliver Kapaun, Expert Support Consultant, SAP
