Automotive supplier improves efficiency of IT estate by increasing SAP standardisation

Anh Nguyen | Feb. 12, 2014
Vehicle cooling systems manufacturer Modine Europe has one of the most efficient SAP estates across all industries, according to the results of a benchmarking exercise.

Its infrastructure includes two SAP mirrors from Libelle in different locations for disaster recovery purposes, 180 Windows servers, mainly blade servers in a VMware environment, 80 SAP servers and 1,400 PCs. It also has an Oracle 11.x database, while its SAN comprises HP EVA and HP 3Par storage.

In addition, Modine runs Windows 2008 R2, Windows 7, Linux, and uses Microsoft Office 2010, Exchange 2010 and Sharepoint.

As well as measuring the standardisation level at Modine, West Trax looked at the response times of the company's customised applications. In the automotive industry, 13 percent of custom programmes have response times of more than a minute. However, the figure at Modine was just three percent.

Trillsam attributed this to "structured programming, close to the SAP standard" and a "fast environment".
