Business processes in the cloud
The CSB data center
In 2009, CSB-System AG started up a state of the art data center in compliance with strict security regulations. In its final state, it is capable of hosting data of up to 20 000 ERP users.
The construction of the data center did not only take into account all IT security aspects, but also the requirements pertaining to state of the art green computing. The data center offers users high availability while also guaranteeing data security, not only of database management systems but also as regards hardware (server, storage and network engineering). Various renowned companies have already implemented this solution.
Advantages of cloud computing
- High level of efficiency as there is no need for an on-site IT department
- Industry-specific functions are accessible over the internet
- High availability of business data at any time
- Technological infrastructure at the data center is always up to date
- Companies can focus on their main business
What our customers say: "Focus 100% on our main business"
Andreas Brunsbach, general manager at Bon Pastaio GmbH
Andreas Brunsbach is general manager at Bon Pastaio GmbH which has specialized in producing premium pasta. He explains why he chose cloud computing to organize his company’s IT function.
My company Bon Pastaio…
...produces premium pasta- and is very passionate about it. We deliver to the high-end catering sector, canteens, social institutions, retailers, caterers and C&C markets all over Germany. The trust that our customers from the industry and retail sectors place in us is down to our philosophy: we only use the best ingredients and guarantee high quality for all our products- without any additives.
IT is crucial because…
...the processes of a food manufacturer are very complex. Although the requirements of SMEs like us are different than those of big companies, they are very similar in terms of complexity. Nowadays, being supported by an IT system is crucial to a company’s success. That is why we eliminated our old island solutions and replaced it with CSB-System as our integrated business software.
In our company, the CSB-System controls…
...procurement, production, inventory, sales, quality management and accounting and finances. Employees at both our locations are working with the software and find all functions that we implemented so far very useful. This was important to us, as it is very important that employees accept the system.
We chose the CSB-System cloud solution because…
…our success strategy is to be as streamlined as possible. We have 35 employees generating a turnover of 5 million euros. The data center structure fits into our strategy: why run our own expensive IT department if we can also outsource to an experienced IT specialist? And as CSB-System AG is also an expert in the food industry, the decision was easy.
System security and availability of the cloud solution are…
..very important criteria. After all, we are talking about business-critical applications. The security concepts of the CSB data center are state of the art and ensure permanent high availability. System downtimes or loss of data are basically impossible. That is why we, as well as all the other renowned companies which are connected to the CSB data center, fully trust the security of the system.
The service is...
… very good. We feel that this one-stop system really is the right solution for us. Our contract with our provider gives us the benefit of a system via an external data center. This is not just practical, but also economically viable.
The cloud solution also offers…
… various other benefits. One could say that we have our very own individual “tailored package“ and still haven’t activated everything the software offers. Whether cloud-based or not, the CSB-System offers the right solution for every industry and customer-specific requirement. Network connectivity is very good and CSB-System takes care of data storage and maintenance. Besides, at the data center in Geilenkirchen, the entire infrastructure is always being kept up to date and can be adapted at all times. This means that we can fully concentrate on what we do best: excellent pasta!
