Annual review 2007



Financial service providers rely on REALTECH

The Sparkasse bank in Singen-Radolfzell successfully implements REALTECH’s theGuard! software. Using this solution, the bank is able to efficiently monitor its network infrastructure and can thus keep track of all network components at all times. Thanks to the fact that the system reports any faults to IT employees in real time, downtime is reduced.

REALTECH Italia wins migration project
Tosinvest, an Italian operator of around 32 rehabilitation clinics, assigns REALTECH Italia the task of migrating its SAP infrastructure to UNIX and upgrading to SAP ECC 6.0. The Tosinvest Group benefits from the upgrade and migration in many ways, including not only increased system performance, but also a reduction in maintenance costs by around 22 percent.

Johanniter Ambulance safeguards application
operation with REALTECH
SCK GmbH, the central IT service provider for the Johanniter Ambulance, uses REALTECH’s theGuard! ApplicationManager to monitor the organization’s complex IT application environment. As the system now constantly records the utilization and availability of central IT resources, high-availability operation of key applications is assured.

REAL:tech Symposium 2007

“Denken braucht Raum” (Thought needs space) was the motto at the REAL:tech Symposium 2007, held at the Print Media Academy in Heidelberg and attended by numerous existing and potential customers. With presentations on REALTECH products and user reports from prestigious reference customers, visitors were able to enjoy an interesting and useful day.

New: theGuard! Service Management Center

Anyone responsible for a complex IT environment needs powerful monitoring and administration tools. REALTECH’s newly designed theGuard! Service Management Center sets customers off to a great start in the efficient management of heterogeneous IT infrastructures. The key to success here is a high degree of automation of service activities for all aspects of corporate IT.

Investing in REALTECH pays off

At the Annual General Meeting in 2007, shareholders agreed to reduce the company’s share capital, therefore returning part of the capital to shareholders. Further good news is that REALTECH pays out a dividend of 0.50 euros per share.

TransportManager software solution certified by SAP
SAP has extensively tested the REALTECH TransportManager and awarded it the title “Certified for SAP NetWeaver”. This software solution developed by REALTECH transfers new software components and other data within an SAP application environment quickly, securely and reliably.

WestLotto bets on Linux

In switching to the Linux operating system, the Westdeutsche Lotterie lottery company leaves nothing to chance and puts its trust in the long-term experience of REALTECH consultants. The SAP specialist assumed responsibility for the entire migration to a new Linux platform. This changeover reduces WestLotto’s expenditure on IT systems.

REALTECH promotes innovation in the Rhine-Neckar region

REALTECH participates in the Heidelberg Innovation Forum and the doIT Software Award presented by MfG Baden-Würrtemberg. Both events have the goal of promoting the Rhine-Neckar region as a high-tech location. Thanks to targeted technology transfer, new ideas from research have a shorter time to market.

Management Cockpit

In order to effectively steer their companies, managers need reliable information. REALTECH’s new Software Management Cockpit provides important key figures from current business processes. The clear and concise presentation of these values lays the foundations for reaching business-critical and strategic decisions.

REALTECH invests in employees

Aiming to continue providing customers with high-quality consulting in the future, REALTECH launches special qualification programs. One such program, STEP-IN, involves intensive training over several weeks that enables the company’s own employees to improve not only their specialist knowledge, but also method expertise and social skills.

Consistent monitoring of business processes
REALTECH’s new theGuard! Service Management Center provides companies with precise statements regarding the efficiency of their business processes. This enables them to consider processes from an economic viewpoint, and thus forms the basis for optimizing their business processes.

Specialist knowledge of REALTECH consultants confirmed by SAP

SAP confirmed REALTECH’s expertise with regard to the SAP NetWeaver Portal, SAP Process Integration and Duet products yet again in 2007. This seal of approval is equivalent to an SAP supplier recommendation, and is only awarded to a few selected companies.

Secure operation of business-critical applications

The new theGuard! ApplicationDashboard product developed by REALTECH analyzes the availability of complex application environments such as SAP applications. This provides companies with a valuable tool that enables them to deal with performance bottlenecks early on and counteract possible failures in central applications.
