Ranbaxy Laboratories: Pharmaceutical Firm Bolsters Mission-Critical SAP Platform With Enhanced IT Infrastructure Solution
Ranbaxy Laboratories is the largest pharmaceutical company in India, focusing on the research, development, and marketing of generic drugs. When the performance of its SAP enterprise resource planning system began to face challenges under the limits of a 32-bit platform, Ranbaxy decided to take advantage of the Microsoft Application Platform. The new solution – based on 64-bit versions of Microsoft SQL Server and Windows Server – provides much higher computing performance, with response times for common SAP activities improved by 80 percent or more. It also offers high scalability and availability to support continued corporate growth.
