As an SAP customer, you may find it increasingly difficult to access the full range of expertise required to maintain and evolve your SAP environments. The SAP offering has grown considerably and requires the involvement of a variety of experienced functional and technical profiles, whose skills are difficult to maintain internally or even to find on the market.

Moreover, the processing of certain needs requires very specific assistance, sometimes only a few hours. Traditional methods of intervention do not provide a satisfactory response.

In response to these different needs, Applium, an integrator dedicated to SAP solutions, has set up a Centre for Support and Maintenance (CSM) which allows clients to benefit from a complete range of SAP services invoiced on a consumption basis (by the hour) and without any volume commitment.

Applium's CSM is certified by SAP for its maintenance activities (SAP PCoE certification).

Applium service offering

Applium offers a complete range of services as part of a dedicated Maintenance organisation:

Corrective Maintenance

Bringing the solution into conformity following the detection of anomalies noted by users of the solution in relation to the General Functional Specifications of reference.

Evolutive Maintenance

Handling of new user needs such as an evolution of the configuration, the implementation of new functionalities or a new specific development (the priority being to remain within the standard).


These are developments requiring a business process overhaul and/or having an impact on several SAP modules. In general, any change requiring more than 10 days of intervention is handled in "Mini-Project" mode.

SAP Environments BC services

Taking into account all system administration and operation tasks to keep SAP environments up to date and running smoothly.  

Authorisation management

Centralisation of all changes in user roles and authorisations, ensuring compliance with your segregation of duties rules.

User support (help desk)

Real-time access to functional and technical SAP experts to respond to SAP user requests

The implementation of these services allows SAP customers of the CSM Applium

  • real-time access to a multi-skilled team covering all functional and technical subjects related to SAP or third-party solutions (senior profiles, more than 9 years of experience with SAP on average).
  • control budgets by having access to "On Demand" services invoiced on a per-use basis or as part of lump sums.
  • to have dashboards and indicators to measure and manage the service and the commitments made by Applium.

The commitments made by Applium and the levels of service provided can be adjusted according to the expectations of clients in terms of responsiveness in dealing with requests and the scope of the services required. Interventions can be carried out remotely or on site. Invoicing can be done on a monthly or annual basis or on a time basis, with invoicing starting at an hourly rate.

The modularity and flexibility of our offer allows us to define the support and maintenance offer that perfectly meets your needs.
