Manual SAP deployments are time-consuming, inefficient, and prone to human error. Due to these factors, relying on manual SAP deployments puts organizations at a greater risk of experiencing delivery issues and poor execution quality. Wharfedale Technologies Inc., a leading cloud service provider, announced today the availability of its DevOps Automation tools for SAP on Azure. These tools automate SAP deployments on Azure, making them many times faster, more cost-effective, and less prone to human error.

Wharfedale’s automation tools incorporate best practice from SAP and Azure to produce consistent and cost-effective SAP deployments on Azure. The tools work in tandem to enable workflow automation and node configuration.

Wharfedale’s DevOps Automation Tools offer customers the following benefits:

  • Reduced time to market: SAP landscapes can be deployed in a matter of hours instead of days utilizing the automated workflows provided by Wharfedale’s SAP automation solution.
  • Reduced Deployment costs: Organizations pay for virtual compute resources based on the time it is held. Automation minimizes the time non-productive resources are held as a work-in-progress there by reducing the resource costs of deployment.
  • Increased service reliability: A completely automated execution is far more reliable than manual execution. Automation produces significantly less errors and higher execution quality.
  • Impeccable compliance and improved auditability: Wharfedale’s SAP automated solution for SAP deployments utilizes a template-based approach which allows organizations to meet strict compliance requirements. The template-based approach also simplifies auditing.
  • Reduced run costs: SAP Basis and infrastructure operations done manually require human labor and its associated costs. Wharfedale’s automation tool reduces costs by minimizing human labor.

Our SAP Automation tools make SAP deployments on Azure many times faster and more cost-effective,” said Mahesh Reddy, Chief Technology Officer at Wharfedale Technologies. “The truly groundbreaking thing about these automation tools is how we can now manage SAP deployments on Azure. With these tools, we can treat SAP deployments and SAP architecture as software code that we can version, test, replicate, and maintain through software development life cycles. Everything is predictable. We know that our architectures and automations will produce the same infrastructure every time we run it”.

Offered as a part of Wharfedale’s Managed Services, automation tools enable customers to improve the efficiency of their SAP implementations and operations with these automated solutions:
