    Objectives

    Consolidate the IT landscape using virtualization technologies and leverage products like SAP NetWeaver Landscape Virtualization Management to manage the SAP landscape.

    Minimize planned downtimes during key administrative tasks and improve Service Levels offered to the internal business customers.

    Quick and rapid provisioning of SAP systems to improve testing and integration scenarios. Reduce costs and complexity. Why SAP

    Long-term relationship with SAP SAP applications run the most critical business applications for LHI LVM quite naturally complements and enhances the overall story around hardware consolidation and infrastructure

    virtualization Benefits

    Automated copy & refresh of productive systems via LVM helps meet some of the demanding business requirements. End-to-end Automation of day to day administrative tasks reduces TCO. Open architecture and rich set of interfaces allows easy integration of LVM with other technologies in the data center (storage,

    databases, virtualization etc.) SAP application awareness and SAP content (Post-Copy Automation) eliminates manual effort reduces time and resources

    required. SAP content is part of the SAP technology foundation layer and is enhanced regularly via the standard patching process.

    Implementation of SAP Netweaver Landscape Virtualization Management as part of the

    hardware consolidation and re-platforming project has resulted in increased flexibility and

    improved responsiveness to our business. LVM offers a compelling value proposition

    because of the end-to-end automation of complex tasks which results in reduced costs and

    minimizes planned outages.
