When decision-makers were considering Swisscom growth strategies, they decided a deep dive As-Is assessment would produce all the facts necessary to improve their SAP system’s performance while cutting operations costs to support the growth plan. Swisscom chose the West Trax automated assessment methodology to produce necessary transparency.
As a major telecommunications company headquartered in Bern, with an Italian subsidiary, Swisscom runs with 19,000 employees generating over $11 Billion revenues. The company relies on efficient SAP system operations to help drive a healthy profit while maintaining high degrees of customer satisfaction.
The KPI scan revealed many unused, or rarely used, custom code programs. Following their results, they deleted unused custom code programs or made them inaccessible to ‘normal’ users with the intention of deleting them later.
Initiatives to help Swisscom improve its SAP solutions operations include Swisscom Cloud strategies to integrate through reliable operations, mobility for unrestricted connectivity, data security, IoT to collect data from objects and machines for processes, Banking industry solutions and operations, and IT outsourcing for custom solutions in the digital age.
