Infotech Lead Asia: Sanovi Technologies has deployed DR solution for Essar Group’s production planning and production applications at their headquarters.
Covering critical ERP functions, the Sanovi DRM Suite is implemented across Essar’s primary and DR locations.
Essar’s Oil & Steel division runs their production on SAP and their production planning on I2 applications.
“The business has mandated a Recovery point Objective of one hour and a Recovery time Objective of five hours, which the Corporate IT team was finding hard pressed to deliver before the Sanovi solution was put in place,” said Jayantha Prabhu, head IT – Infrastructure, Essar.
The implementation of Sanovi’s DRM solution has implications for its DR service operations. This tool has reduced the effort for regular DR setup monitoring, management, report generation and DR drill activity.
Its drill time per-cycle has gone down from 16 hours to four hours, and the team size deployed for managing the drill is reduced from 8 to two engineers. Essar has streamlined its DR processes and increased its frequency of holding DRM drills to twice a year.
“We have taken a productive visionary approach for DR readiness from Sanovi. Sanovi is undoubtedly market leader in DRM owing to their superior technology, customer support and solutions tuned to our industrial requirement,” Prabhu added.
The DR solution for Essar aimed at overcoming the challenges faced by Essar, viz, lack of real-time monitoring of DR Readiness, incident management, application level replication of processes as well as database. Sanovi DR solution automates the DR drills reducing dependency on expertise of individuals and significantly cutting down complexity of the processes.
Ashis Guha, president – Global Sales, Sanovi, said: “This project marks another significant milestone for Sanovi and further validates our leadership in the DR solution space.”
