Who are we?

Afterwards, you work with functional and technical teams to figure out the business requirements, solution architecture and priorities . Next, you collaborate with business and project leads to determine the technical architecture performance, availability and recovery requirements, and translate those in agreed SLAs and KPIs. Once these needs are fixed, you decide the preferred technologies and capabilities , together with Hosting & Infrastructure, as well as the Support Service Partners. Finally, you create architecture and technical design documents to communicate the solutions that will be implemented by the solution designer and technical implementer.
The other part of your time… You will be staffed on SAP infrastructure projects as a technical architect to assist with: project management, the projects’ planning and realization, and the actual deployment and implementation.
