In early 2004, amid increasing need for a modern effective management system in a dynamically growing company that entered new sales markets, the Silur management decided to switch to a newer version of SAP R/3.


Migration of the existing system to new hardware and software platform is always difficult and requires proper selection of all components. Looking for a solution to suit their needs, the company engineers thoroughly analysed the existing hardware and software platforms and chose a new foundation for their SAP R/3 system—a solution offered by SI BIS based on IBM eServer pSeries server and IBM Total Storage.

pSeries server and IBM Total Storage.

The deployment was handled by SI BIS jointly with SAP Ukraine.

To ensure reliability and high performance of the platform, integration of software products from different developers was required during system commissioning:

  1. IBM AIX v5.2 operating system 2. Oracle DBMS v.9i 3. SAP R/3 v.4.7 software


IT Infrastructure Modernization


The newer version of SAP R/3 and POWER 4+ processor-based server as a hardware platform combined high performance and compact layout and benefited from the 64-bit AIX5L operating system, which enabled much higher system performance and faster query processing.

SI BIS also trained JSC Silur experts to do AIX OS administration.
