    Michael Missbach (SAP Specialist Architect at Rackspace) and Andre Fenchel (Sales Executive at Rackspace)
    Dieses Webinar wendet sich an Kunden, die ihre SAP Systeme mit HANA und S/4 im Rahmen einer Cloud Strategie modernisieren möchten.

    Doch schon bei der Erstellung einer Cloud Infrastruktur Architektur für HANA liegt der Teufel im Detail, von der Wahl der Betriebssystemvariante bis zur Konfiguration des Filesystems. Was ist zu tun, wenn das ECC Release noch nicht HANA ready ist und wie kann man dafür sorgen das die Umstellung tausender Z-ABAPs bei der S/4 Konversion nicht zum unkalkulierbaren Zeit- und Kostenrisiko werden?

    Der bekannte SAP Buchautor Dr. Michael Missbach erläutert die verschiedenen zum Einsatz kommenden Migrations-Szenarien, auf welche Details zu achten ist und wie man die oben genannten Risiken vermeidet. Melden Sie sich gleich für unser Webinar an.

  • Outsource, insource or smart source: what's best for the public sector? Recorded: Jan 29 2020 61 mins
    Amit Patel, Tony Summers, Rhys Sharp and Helen Olsen
    Bringing ICT back in-house from a long-term outsourcing arrangement can be complex. Does a smart sourcing approach smooth the path to success?

    The public sector is changing the way it thinks about and manages IT resources. As technology plays such a pivotal role in providing superior services to end-users, such as patients and citizens, there is a drive to improve the sourcing of IT infrastructure, services and applications. But should you outsource, insource or smart source?

    In this webinar, experts from UKAuthority, Socitm Advisory, The British Heart Foundation and Rackspace discuss how the public sector can take back control of outsourced contracts and bring technology back in from the cold.

    On the panel:
    •Amit Patel, Director of Technology Design & Engineering, British Heart Foundation
    •Tony Summers, Chief Executive, Socitm Advisory
    •Rhys Sharp, Solutions Director, Rackspace
    •Helen Olsen Bedford, Publisher, UKAuthority

Combining high-level strategic insights with essential technical information, it provides attendees with a deeper understanding of what it takes to succeed with the cloud – and their best next steps, wherever they are in their journey.
  • Application Modernisation: A View on Database Services Recorded: Dec 12 2019 12 mins
    Jonathan Adams (Technical Sales Specialist at Rackspace)
    It’s not unusual for companies to devote too many resources to keeping the lights on. This bogs down IT and deprives teams of the time required to test, innovate and extract intelligence from their organisation’s data.

    It also impacts time-to market, as well as the ability to pipe transactional data into modern BI platforms that deliver insights in real-time. Outsourcing some of these tasks to a trusted managed service provider (MSP) will ensure that an enterprise and its leaders remain nimble and have the ability to make data-driven decisions that grow the business.

    This webinar takes you through:
    - The common challenges businesses are facing today when it comes to their databases
    - How Rackspace can support your application modernisation journey
    - Why MSPs can be the key to remain innovative and agile
