Utildam faced a pivotal challenge as it continued to expand its services across Nigeria, boasting a vast and diverse customer base. To effectively manage field activities, inventory, and client billing, the company relied on SAP Business One (SAP B1), a comprehensive business management software. However, the rapid growth posed several challenges.
Managing the SAP B1 system on-premises incurred substantial overhead costs, ranging from maintenance to disaster recovery. These operational burdens threatened business continuity, especially given Utildam’s role in supplying critical business services.
In its pursuit of operational excellence and digital transformation, Utildam partnered with Digitank to transition its SAP B1 system to the AWS cloud. AWS, a robust cloud platform, offered Utildam the ideal solution, addressing these key concerns:
AWS provided Utildam with unprecedented flexibility and scalability. The ability to scale its SAP B1 environment seamlessly eliminated the need for substantial hardware investments. Utildam could now expand its operations without the constraints of traditional infrastructure.
With AWS, Utildam adopted a cost-efficient pay-as-you-go model. The company only pays for the resources it consumes, significantly reducing SAP B1 operational costs. This newfound cost-effectiveness enabled Utildam to allocate resources more strategically, further enhancing its competitive edge.
Utildam successfully mitigated the risk of business disruptions due to hardwaren failures. With AWS’s robust infrastructure and redundancy features, they ensured continuous service availability for their critical business operations.
Utildam’s migration of SAP Business One to AWS Cloud marked a significant turning point in their operations. By embracing the cloud, they achieved greater scalability, cost savings, and risk mitigation. The company is now better equipped to meet the needs of its expanding customer base in Nigeria while delivering efficient and uninterrupted field activity services.
Utildam’s collaboration with Digitank Africa and its strategic move to AWS Cloud has positioned them for sustained growth, operational excellence, and continued commitment to providing exceptional products and services to their clients across Africa.
