Tech Mahindra now certified to implement end-to-end solution operation standards for clients, delivering enhanced efficiencies, reduced downtime and costs
Hyderabad, 28 April 2010 : Tech Mahindra, the brand identity of Satyam Computer Services Ltd. (NYSE:SAY), a leading global consulting and IT services provider, an SAP® services partner, today announced that it has been certified by SAP AG as a provider of solution implementation based on the Run SAP methodology. Tech Mahindra is among the first SAP partners to be certified globally in the Run SAP methodology and will incorporate the methodology into its implementation standards. Tech Mahindra was previously certified locally in using the Run SAP methodology to perform implementation for customers in India and the United States.
"By adopting the Run SAP methodology into our own implementation standards, we are going beyond the vision of implementing the solutions required by our customers," said AS Murthy, Chief Technology Officer, Tech Mahindra. "We are now providing our customers the proven methodology for managing their SAP applications through end-to-end solution operations standards. This will empower our customers to manage their SAP applications more efficiently and at a lower cost."
Run SAP is a phased methodology based on world-class knowledge. It provides best-practice procedures, content, services, training and tools for end-to-end solution operations, along with a standardized and proven implementation method. The Run SAP methodology focuses on application management, business process operations, and administration of SAP solutions. The methodology describes how support should be implemented across the lifecycle design, set-up, operations and optimization. In addition, with its best-practice documents for solution operations, it describes how to implement end-to-end solution operations for different SAP software-based business processes.
"We applaud Tech Mahindra in becoming one of the first SAP services partners certified in the Run SAP methodology, both locally in India and the U.S. and globally," said Dr. Uwe Hommel, Executive Vice President of Active Global Support at SAP AG. "By adopting the end-to-end solution operations standards provided by the Run SAP methodology, Tech Mahindra will deliver to its customers a higher level of effectiveness and efficiency."
Run SAP is an integral part of SAP Enterprise Support services, a holistic support model designed to enable continuous improvement and successful solution operations at lower risk and cost.
SAP customers will realize the benefits of operating with the end-to-end standards. SAP standards for solution operations are a prerequisite for the continuous improvement of SAP solution operations. Not only do they enable automation, reducing the cost of operations, but also improved traceability and an audit trail, helping companies to achieve cost efficiency, quality assurance and compliance enablement.
