Success Stories: foursquared Inc: SAP on SQL Server selected for Use at Thermo Fisher


Thermo Fisher is a company providing a host of medical related services, to millions of customers across the US and World wide. The requirement to provide an improved solution for running SAP on the Microsoft Windows platform was imperative in the last year. Leaning on its’ strong partnerships with SAP and Microsoft, Thermo Fisher had requirements to design a robust implementation of SAP using commodity hardware from Intel and the power of SQL Server and Windows from Microsoft. In conjunction with storage partners, EMC and Cisco Servers, a solution for now and into the future was designed.

While evaluating their SAP platform strategy, Thermo Fisher approached staff at Microsoft to evaluate SQL Server. This new environment covering a large number of infrastructure components required scalability, flexibility and optimization around all facets of the business at Thermo.

Through the in-depth knowledge of Microsoft Staff around SAP Solution implementation, the benefits to using SQL Server and the use of commodity hardware from Intel, Thermo Fisher was swayed to successfully make a decision to leverage SQL Server and Windows as a platform for SAP. The use of the Microsoft-SAP Migration and Innovation Center was instrumental in making this platform decision an effective one for Thermo Fisher.
