Rewe's key requirments for new solution

  • Centralized monitoring and effortless integration with all deployed SAP systems using Oracle and DB2 databases
  • An interface with global system management, used for coordinating activities such as on-call duty
  • A viable alternative to SAP Solution Manager. REWE could no longer rely on the SAP CCMS (RZ20) interface, a critical requirement to monitoring facilities

“It was a vital requirement for us to find a solution that
wasn’t based on the SAP CCMS interface. Ultimately, this was the decisive factor in choosing syslink Xandria.”

Wolfgang Ihlenfeld, ERP/SAP system operation department REWE Group
