The client is facing a challenge of high corporate overhead costs, which it aims to reduce. Corporate overhead costs refer to the indirect expenses incurred by a company in order to operate and support its business, such as administrative expenses, rent, and utilities.
In order to address this challenge, the client has identified its IT operations, specifically its SAP applications, as an area where it can reduce costs. SAP is a widely used enterprise resource planning (ERP) software that helps companies manage their business operations and processes.
The client recognizes that its SAP applications are critical to its overall operational efficiency efforts, which means that any changes made to its IT operations must not compromise the performance or availability of these applications.
To reduce costs, the client may need to consider various strategies, such as optimizing its infrastructure, streamlining its processes, and automating certain tasks. This may involve consolidating servers, using cloud-based solutions, and adopting agile methodologies for software development and deployment.
Overall, the client’s goal is to find ways to reduce its IT costs while maintaining the effectiveness and reliability of its SAP applications, which are essential for supporting the company’s business operations.
