Scheer migrates the entire SAP HANA landscape of BCD Travel into Microsoft Azure in just a few weeks

Successful Cloud Migration for more Flexibility, Resource Efficiency and Transparency

Saarbrücken, 23.09.2019

Guaranteeing a fast availability of IT resources, needs-based value expenditures, flexible scalability, and certified data security have convinced BCD Travel as one of the largest providers of global business travel management to migrate their SAP landscape to Microsoft Azure. BCD Travel has commissioned the process experts of Scheer Managed Services, who have already been responsible for the support of BCD Travel systems for more than three years. The core systems of the SAP landscape were migrated in just six weeks. The remaining systems followed in April 2019.

Due to the further extension of functionality and the associated processing and storage of a large number of credit card transactions, additional security mechanisms had to be implemented, based on the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS).

Microsoft Azure Cloud platform was chosen as it allows flexible changes of departments and IT to react faster to changing conditions and, in addition, to reduce BCD’s costs. With the completely scalable cloud platform of Microsoft, BCD can run as many applications as desired, test developments or even illustrate entire servers in the cloud in a highly flexible way. With Azure, there are no limits to the further development of BCD’s business.

“We are pleased to have found a strategic partner for our digital transformation process in Scheer GmbH, with its proven expertise in the area of SAP HANA. As a business travel management company, we have very stringent security requirements. With Microsoft Azure, Scheer GmbH is able to meet these requirements,” says Cees Batenburg, Global Chief Financial Officer at BCD Travel.
