With 14 years experience in Basis-managed services, we understand that SAP is not just another app on the net; it is critical to business operations.
Milwaukee, Wisc. (PRWEB) August 3, 2009
Symmetry Corporation, an industry leader in providing expert Basis and security services in support of SAP(®) solutions, today announced it is now an SAP hosting partner and its hosting service has been certified by SAP AG.
"Being an SAP-certified provider of hosting services is confirmation of Symmetry's proven methodology for managing SAP application-based environments," said Dan Wilhelms, president of Symmetry Corporation. "As an SAP hosting partner, we are ideally positioned to support our clients' infrastructure, now and in the future.
"As concepts like cloud computing drive the IT industry towards a centralized, hosted model, Symmetry's clients know that we can draw upon our experience as 'Basis experts', and through our hosting partnership with SAP, we can continue as leaders in SAP best practices for emerging trends," added Wilhelms.
Symmetry achieved certification of its hosting services from SAP after passing a rigorous audit of its infrastructure, technical staff, and operations. The audit found that Symmetry meets SAP standards for technical operations and internal process controls, and that it is consistently able to deliver a secure, high-quality service to customers. SAP hosting partners are recertified on a regular basis to help ensure continual high standards of service delivery.
"Symmetry's status as an SAP hosting partner in the U.S. with hosting services certified by SAP is an important progression in our successful relationship," said Michael Ressemann, global head of BPO Solution Delivery and Partner Enablement at SAP. "Through this partnership, SAP customers will benefit from comprehensive hosted applications from Symmetry, allowing them to focus their resources on meeting core business challenges."
"Symmetry is differentiated from other providers of application hosting services because of our SAP-centric approach," said Frank Powell, chief operating officer at Symmetry. "With 14 years experience in Basis-managed services, we understand that SAP is not just another app on the net; it is critical to business operations."
The Sym-Hosting(SM) service from Symmetry provides peace of mind by mitigating many of the traditional concerns related to hosting, allowing clients to focus resources on their core business. The Symmetry hosting methodology provides 24x7 production support and ongoing maintenance as well as support services for infrastructure, implementation and security. The Sym-Hosting model relies on dedicated resources to ensure that each client's data is secure and optimized; clients never suffer performance issues or downtime as a result of shared servers or infrastructure. In another break from the traditional hosting model, Sym-Hosting clients pay for rack space, rather than by the gigabyte, so that growing businesses are not penalized for their increasing storage requirements.
