Accompanying a regulated company on its journey to the cloud
Embarking on the journey to the cloud with a company in the insurance and financial services industry presents many challenges. With our customer, Gothaer, we overcame them all! In situations like this, you have to consider aspects such as flexibility, scalability, cost efficiency, security, and compliance all at the same time. That leads to a high degree of complexity.
As one of the leading SAP on Azure partners and an experienced SAP partner, Scheer is the perfect link between Gothaer, Microsoft and SAP. Thanks to the constant availability of Scheer's experts, there was no need for the customer to build up in-house expertise in Microsoft Azure and SAP operations. Support from Scheer Cloud Managed Services specialists made things simpler and enabled Gothaer to concentrate on its core business – providing insurance to its customers.
As an insurance company, we're subject to strict regulatory requirements. Scheer was the right partner for us because they not only have the necessary expertise; they were also open to our need for special contractual arrangements at all times and were always willing to find constructive solutions in this regard. As a result, we're now able to offer the users of our systems more efficient and flexible solutions.

With our support, Gothaer was able to further advance its overarching digitalization strategy and build a central DWH digitalization platform based on SAP BW/4HANA and SAP BO in Azure. This means Gothaer can now adapt continuously to changes in the business world. Together, we went to great lengths to be able to guarantee data security at all times. By taking over the operation of the SAP systems hosted on Azure, we've ensured secure and reliable operations. Gothaer can thus focus on developing new business processes and improving existing ones. What used to take hours now just takes a few minutes.
In summary, Gothaer is enjoying the following benefits:
In the past, the majority of our customers from widely differing industries worked with SAP ERP, whether it was hosted at their own data center or with Scheer.
