About Oxfam Intermón: as a non-governmental cooperation and development organisation, Oxfam Intermón bases its activity in offering integrated solutions to fight poverty and injustice to help all human being exercise their fundamental rights. Their efforts are focused on the following existential premises:
- Right to be heard and to have a decent life
- Promote gender equality
- Save lifes, now and in the future
- Sustainable food systems
- Fair natural resources distribution
- Financial support on basic and universal social services
The Oxfam Intermón SAP Systems infrastructure was running out of their support services and needed full renovation. On top of this critical business change necessity, they were facing performance challenges in some of their main operating processes that allows them to properly function as an organisation.
As a result, Oxfam Intermón had to decide if they wanted to keep their current On-Demand infrastructure even though there was no guarantee they would achieve the performance results they needed after this heavy upfront investment.
Thanks to the knowledge that Linke owns on AWS capacity and benefits (autoservice, scalability, pay per use, speed and flexibility) we suggested Oxfam Intermón to try a proof of concept (POC) with AWS on their most critical landscape systems and test the performance of the platform before making final decisions or investing money.
Performance tests were successful. Cost and transformation processes to the AWS infrastructure were simple and agile so Oxfam Intermón decided to migrate its SAP landscape –SAP CRM, SAP ERP & SAP PI– to AWS with Linke´s guidance.
