Wawa, a US-based specialty retailer, has signed a new five-year contract with AT&T to migrate and host its existing SAP applications, a landscape that consists of over 30 servers used by more than 15,000 employees.
Following the migration, AT&T will monitor and manage Wawa’s SAP system to support efficient functioning of all business-critical applications, with dedicated AT&T teams available to resolve issues and streamline application performance.
Wawa will also use the AT&T Managed Application Services Tool (MAST) available via AT&T BusinessDirect, which will allow Wawa employees direct access to the SAP system via the internet to view, monitor and analyze system performance. AT&T disaster recovery services will help facilitate the continuity of applications in the event of a disaster.
Julius Colina, IT manager of hosting strategy at Wawa, said: A secure, reliable infrastructure for our applications is extremely important to our business, as it helps ensure that our systems run efficiently and without interruption. We are confident that AT&T Business Solutions will effectively manage our applications and allow us to focus our internal resources on fulfilling the daily needs of our customers.
