Choithrams Supermarket and Department Store upgrades to PRIMEFLEX for SAP HANA which speeds up billing and performance five times faster

Customer

The first Choithrams Supermarket and Department Store was established in the UAE over three decades ago. Since then, many additional stores have opened in locations across the seven Emirate states. The company provides a wide range of groceries, from fruit and vegetables to meat, bread, and ready meals.

Challenge

Choithrams’ aging SAP platform was reaching end of life and lacked the capacity to handle the growing business. The company wanted to find a more flexible, virtualized solution.

Solution

Choithrams worked with the local UAE Fujitsu team and Fujitsu Germany Labs to pre-configure Integrated System PRIMEFLEX for SAP HANA®, consisting of PRIMERGY servers, ETERNUS storage, and Brocade Networking Solutions switches, running SAP HANA on SUSE and VMware. This now supports 300 users across almost 50 sites.

Benefit

  • Performance is five times faster, boosting productivity
  • Reports now produced in minutes rather than hours
  • Improved inventory visibility, enhancing efficiency
  • Scalable solution enables easy future growth
  • Virtualization makes management and provisioning simple
