OneNeck IT Solutions, an IT solutions and cloud hosting provider, a wholly owned subsidiary of Telephone and Data Systems with approximately 630 employees throughout the U.S., will now host, manage and maintain SAP applications for customers across the United States.
While hosting of SAP solutions may be new to OneNeck’s portfolio, the company teamed up with parent company Telephone and Data Systems to develop and deliver a jointly supported service.
“With our parent company’s nearly 20 years of experience managing SAP solution environments, we’ve leveraged their expertise and employee base to successfully deploy this application for a couple of clients,” said Clint Harder, CTO and senior vice president of Managed Services at OneNeck. “These clients now have the opportunity to focus on their business rather than their IT infrastructure.”
As an SAP-certified provider of hosting services, OneNeck IT Solutions would provide a “cost-effective” delivery model for mission-critical SAP applications. To achieve this certification from SAP, OneNeck’s infrastructure, physical and logical security measures, processes, portal and technical staff went through extensive review by SAP. The review process validated the operational integration of OneNeck’s support of SAP applications to ensure compliance with SAP’s requirements for quality, availability and security.
“Adding services for SAP solutions to our portfolio was a natural evolution,” added Harder. “For years, we’ve offered support of several other ERP applications. However, we’re often asked if we ‘do SAP’ – and now we can say yes. We’re delighted to have hosting services for SAP solutions as part of our ERP portfolio. And to have earned the SAP certification for our hosting services, it simply affirms we can successfully deliver this solution.”
To further ensure ongoing high standards for the management of SAP solutions, SAP-certified providers of hosting services undergo a rigorous assessment of their delivery and support capabilities every two years by SAP’s outsourcing partner certification group.
OneNeck offers a full suite of hybrid IT solutions. In addition to ERP application management, OneNeck also delivers cloud hosting solutions, ReliaCloud enterprise cloud services, and managed services. OneNeck has Tier 3 data centers available in Arizona, Colorado, Iowa, Minnesota, Oregon and Wisconsin.
