ESDS SAP HANA Community Cloud

summary

About

From selling sodas in 1907, Vadilal has travelled through four generations of Gandhis. In 1926, Vadilal imported ice-cream making machines. From a small outlet, Vadilal had expanded to four ice-cream shops before independence and became popular for its flagship cassata ice cream, which was introduced in the 1950s. In the year 1993, Vadilal purchased the Bareilly unit and made major expansion there. In 1995, Vadilal became first Indian brand to export frozen vegetables to the US market. Today, Vadilal is the country's second-largest ice cream brand by sales. Vadilal has the largest range of ice creams in the country, with more than 150 flavors sold in more than 300 packs and forms. Vadilal has a core team of in-house "ice-cream experts" who taste 15-20 products a day. It has 50,000 dealers across India and 250 Vadilal Parlors, most franchisee outlets. Vadilal Industries also entered the processed foods industry in the early 1990s and is today one of the largest players in India.

The Challenge

Vadilal wanted to opt for a better cloud service provider who had vast experience in SAP HANA implementations with required compliances, certifications and most importantly a state-of-the-art cloud platform.

The Solution

ESDS proposed SAP HANA Community Cloud which follows all the SAP HANA guidelines and SAP HANA techniques for migration. ESDS delivered SAP Router & multiple sandbox instances within few hours & full network/security policies configured as per requirement. ESDS also proposed phase-wise deployment like development, quality, production and DR for production to reduce cost of ownership. Vadilal also opted for Disaster Recovery services.

The Benefit

After migrating on ESDS SAP HANA Community Cloud, Vadilal is able to experience efficient business operations than before. They are facing zero connection issues when compared to their previous infrastructure as their employees can now connect to SAP system from anywhere at any time.
