Helaba: Greater flexibility and performance.
The Hessen-Thüringen Landesbank migrated its dedicated SAP landscape from Windows clusters and AIX servers to the FI-TS Finance Cloud. This move has given the bank greater flexibility in its SAP operations, and sustainable improvements to service quality.
Helaba was looking for a way to unify the platform of its SAP landscape. By migrating its SAP applications to FI-TS cloud.app.sap, the bank managed to eliminate three quarters of its dedicated SAP systems. Moreover, Helaba profits from the ability to deploy computing capacity flexibly, and bolt on high-performance test systems without delay as and when needed.
"As well as flexible resource deployment, it's a huge benefit to have test systems available so fast. It used to take up to six weeks to get a test system – and now we can have one up and running the same day," says Dr. Stefan Reusch. "With SAP in the cloud at FI-TS, we have a technological edge that we’ll certainly be leveraging in our business."
The main advantages
- 75 percent fewer SAP systems needed
- Computing power distributed flexibly between SAP applications
- Test systems available rapidly, complete with mirroring of production data
- Substantially faster backup times
- Greatly reduced storage volumes
- SAP cloud certification gives high level of security
The FI-TS cloud.app.sap solution enables resources to be allocated flexibly to individual systems, and test systems can be deployed far more rapidly. Helaba is also saving 75 percent of the SAP systems it would otherwise need.

We’ve made tremendous gains in service quality by migrating to SAP in the cloud at FI-TS. We’re glad we made the move to this innovative service when we did, and are now reaping the profits.
