SAP Ariba Application Management Services are a common offering by consulting firms that provide SAP and SAP Ariba consulting and support.
Traditionally, it has been used as an adjunct to internal staff, but as enterprise applications become more complex, SAP Ariba Application Managed Support (AMS) is becoming a necessity to help support and manage this technology.
In a nutshell, AMS means to outsource the job of ongoing support for technology to a third-party expert. Services and support can be as all-encompassing as a full support crew or used as on-demand support when something more technical is needed – or if you’re simply short-handed.
That support is provided by expert consultants that are specifically trained and experienced in delivering the maximum value for your SAP Ariba investment. They are uniquely qualified to understand when changes need to be made, and upgrade or enhancements are appropriate.
In addition to ongoing support, they will proactively monitor SAP’s quarterly releases to be sure any relevant improvements are incorporated into your system. This continually makes your system more user friendly, thus improving and reinforcing user adoption.
At CCP Global we have offered AMS services for more than 20 years through our Help Desk Support solution. Drawing upon that long experience in supporting our many clients’ needs has led us to create a more robust program called SAP Ariba Managed Support. With an organized and focused onboarding process, we meet the unique needs of each Ariba client’s administrative and support desk needs, removing the long cycle time dealing with Ariba Service Requests.
In addition, our consultants are experts in both on-site and remote support.
There is no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to Managed Support. Some companies may just need some basic help desk support, others might need more intense support for highly technical projects or solutions.
Using CCP Global as your AMS partner offers these key benefits:
