The UGAP optimizes and enhances reliability of its IT Operations under SAP with Visual TOM, to replace CA Workload
Central purchasing service for the French State, The UGAP (Union of Public Purchasing Groups), wished to replace its scheduling tool.
With a multi-platform IT environment, mainly under SAP, the UGAP IT Department was looking for a job scheduler which would be able to automate and industrialize all of its IT operations.
After review, the UGAP chose Visual TOM to pilot its strategic IT operations.
A multi-platform IT environment, characterized by many flows inter-applications
Flows between applications to (automate and) industrialize with Visual TOM concern both purchasing or procurement management, storage, customers or suppliers accounting, with SAP R/3 and SAP BW, the payroll management with SAP HR, as customer relationship management with SAP CRM, or other specific UGAP operations managed via dedicated web applications or specific collaborative tools.
Three main selection criteria
To replace their existing scheduling solution, The UGAP IT teams were looking for a publisher providing:
Visual TOM acquisition cost, ensuring the best return on investment, its functional extended coverage, its ease of use, but also the number of already successful migration from CA Workload toward Visual TOM, demonstrating the ability of Absyss to drive such project successfully, have been decisive factors in the choice made by the UGAP.
The UGAP (Union of Public Purchasing Groups), one and only central purchasing service for the French State, was created to streamline public purchasing.
The UGAP is an industrial and commercial public institution (EPIC) under the joint supervision of the Minister of Economy, Industry and Employment and the Minister of National Education.
It receives no subsidy and operates in a fully competitive environment.
