In a competitive market that demands immediate and hassle-free growth, Misr Pharmacies needed to switch their SAP modules into a more scalable environment to respond effectively to emergent changes and expansion needs in addition to the regular upgrades that constantly require extra specs.

Their SAP ERP operations include SAP Financial Accounting (FI), SAP Controlling (CO), SAP Sales and Distribution (SD), SAP Production Planning (PP), SAP Materials Management (MM), SAP Quality Management (QM), and SAP Human Capital Management (HCM).

  • Availability
  • Accessibility
  • Hardware lifespan
  • Performance
  • Instant sizing requirements
  • Disaster recovery

How We Helped Them

WorldPosta offered their team the same capacity on cloud along with the sought-after environment features and drastic cost reductions.

The total cost of on-premises deployment would reach to $985.000 for equipment, bandwidth, internal network, Veaam and remote backup, and VPN client. Clearly, all these expenses do not include room, IT stuff cost, and internet, UPS, and DR Site prices.

WorldPosta could offer them the whole resources along with other required facilities that include IT security, performance management, and maintenance and support. In other words, the whole cost of on-premises in one month equals that of 5 years on the cloud.
