The audit of the BCC outsourcing center performed by SAP AG has given BCC the status of a SAP Hosting Partner. BCC is the first Polish company to obtain this status.
The audit was performed in June this year and proved BCC’s competence and potential to provide hosting services. The consultants from the SAP AG head office in Walldorf carried out a thorough review of the BCC outsourcing center. This included the competence of the BCC consultants, the processes, procedures, tools and standards implemented in the organisation as well as the infrastructure of the Data Center. As a result of the audit BCC received the status of a SAP Hosting Partner.
“The status of a Hosting Partner gives our present and future clients an additional guarantee of the safety of systems that they entrust to us and the data contained within them; whilst BCC has wider access to knowledge about the technologies developed by SAP AG” says Waldemar Sokołowski, BCC Director for Outsourcing Services.
“Hosting gives many companies the chance of lowering the entry barrier to world standard IT management support solutions. It is much better if clients can avail of a comprehensive offer that includes SAP implementation and maintenance. The status of a Hosting Partner confirms that not only does BCC provide implementation services of the highest quality, but also SAP outsourcing that meets the most strict criteria determined by SAP” – says Grzegorz Rogaliński, President of SAP Poland.
BCC has been providing outsourcing services since 1999, related mainly to SAP systems: from hosting and system collocation in their own data centre, through system administration to SAP user support, i.e. application service. Over 70 clients are currently availing of these services. These include some of the largest international and Polish companies, for example ABB, Amica, Metro Group, the Grupa Żywiec, ING Bank Śląski and Kompania Piwowarska, as well as many medium enterprises, for example Atlantic, Decora, Herlitz and Kopernik.
