There’s a Faster Way for SAP on Azure Customers to Resolve Performance and Downtime Issues

Your SAP infrastructure is running on Azure. Everything has been running smoothly in terms of production and system performance for the last 3 months. However, while monitoring your SAP landscape you noticed that the system was starting to experience some performance bottlenecks. You know that if these performance bottlenecks are not resolved quickly it will negatively impact production and other business processes.

What do you do?  

Your first instinct is to notify your IT staff to resolve the issue. After spending some time on the problem, the IT department informs you that they cannot diagnose or resolve the issue. They suggest that the issue could be a network issue which can only be resolved by Microsoft Azure support.  

Following their reasoning, you submit a support ticket to Azure support. After running a diagnosis, Azure support informs you that the issue isn’t on their end. Four hours have now gone by since you first noticed the bottleneck in your system. You still haven’t found a solution much less a diagnosis of the problem. Every minute that goes by means a decrease in production. You are getting frustrated.  

At this point, you conclude that the issue must be with the SAP application. After all, that is the last available option in this equation. Based on this reasoning, you submit a support ticket to SAP. Considering the amount of time that has gone by without diagnosing the issue or coming up with a solution, you hope SAP can help diagnose and resolve the issue quickly.

This situation is a common challenge that SAP on Azure customers face when a performance issue needs to be resolved.  Like the earlier illustration shows, crucial time can be wasted when you’re trying to diagnose an issue. Is it an issue that the internal IT staff can solve, is it an issue with Azure, or is it an SAP issue? These are all questions that customers need to answer quickly, yet many customers are regulated to a slow process of elimination to answer these questions.

What if you could quickly pinpoint the root cause of your performance issue without going through a process of elimination that involves a complex SAP infrastructure and a complex cloud platform? You would not only be able to save time but increase the production and efficiency of your organization.
