SAP To Provide Customers With Business Technology Optimization Software From Mercury

The announcement follows Mercury’s announcement last May that it will deliver solutions for Enterprise Services Architecture (ESA) deployments and underscores SAP’s commitment to building its partner ecosystem and portfolio of solutions for its customers. Mercury LoadRunner helps customers verify that SAP applications will meet business performance requirements before they “go live” in implementation deployments. By using Mercury LoadRunner, SAP project managers can obtain an accurate picture of end-to-end system performance and optimize the scalability of applications, which are powered by SAP NetWeaver. This helps managers avoid over-spending on hardware and infrastructure costs.
“As the number one manufacturer of confectionery products in the United States, we needed to upgrade our enterprise SAP system and verify that the architecture was sufficient to meet our performance and availability requirements. Using Mercury software, we completed our SAP software upgrade on time and under budget, with no increase in help desk calls and no negative impact on business operations,” said Arthur Murray, manager, applications testing, quality assurance and training at The Hershey Company. “We see this enhanced relationship between SAP and Mercury as a very positive step.”
SAP LoadRunner by Mercury is a load testing solution for predicting system behavior and performance. It fully integrates with and leverages the Computer Center Management System (CCMS) from SAP and allows customers to automate application load testing. “With more than 1,400 joint customers, Mercury and SAP have a long and successful track record of enhancing the performance and efficiency of SAP solution deployments,” said Ross Wainwright, senior vice president, North America Consulting, SAP. “We have worked with Mercury for more than ten years and take great pride in the seamless integration of our offerings and the strength of our partnership.”
“For many of our customers, the performance of their SAP applications equals the performance of the business,” said Jay Larson, senior vice president of worldwide field operations at Mercury. “We are pleased that SAP is delivering our market leading application delivery offerings to its customers directly. This development represents significant opportunity for Mercury and SAP to jointly focus on optimizing the business outcomes of our customers’ SAP implementations.”
