Netmagic has been able to understand our dynamic IT Infrastructure requirements all the while delivering quality and timely support so that we can focus on enhancing and upgrading our business application
Netmagic is a SAP certified partner whereas other providers that we evaluated were not SAP certified. We got good inputs from the Netmagic team on hosting our SAP ERP application. The team at Netmagic addressed our concerns for having a highly available and scalable IT infrastructure for this application. Being a business critical application for us, it was crucial that there was no downtime, as this would affect the smooth functioning of our internal business processes. Netmagic addressed our concerns and also provided us the scalability of adding more users to the application as our business grew.
Netmagic’s support to setup the infrastructure throughout our transformational journey has been phenomenal. They went out of their way to help us achieve our objectives. Their understanding of our needs and ability to respond to it is commendable.
One of the key aspects which helped us choose Netmagic was the knowledge bank that the technical and business teams at Netmagic possess – as well as the understanding of our business criticality. To quote an example, we have a few in-house developed applications that had some issues porting onto the cloud model. Netmagic's timely advice and support to smoothly manage this challenge and get optimum performance was commendable
"Migrating a large SAP environment from one facility to another while ensuring zero downtime was always going to be a significant challenge. Netmagic’s project management team and engineers worked closely with us to ensure a smooth and seamless migration of the SAP systems and network elements that exceeded our expectations."
We have been with Netmagic for a very long time. Both companies have grown together from start-ups. Netmagic enabled our growth by providing us with good reliable service, flexibility, scalability at good prices.
"For the last four years we have hosted our core business applications with Netmagic. Netmagic has ensured highly available, scalable and dynamic IT infrastructure that delivers a high quality trading experience to our customers. This partnership with Netmagic has enabled us to manage costs associated with building IT infrastructure internally and we do not have to worry about power supply and operations management. The engagement and involvement of the Netmagic team in understanding our requirement is good and has helped us a lot,"
Response time from support teams, solutioning teams and senior management at Netmagic has been a WOW factor. Support and responsiveness from Netmagic has been prompt and highly involving,
We found a willingness and an inclination to meet our specific requirements in Netmagic's team. We are very impressed with the technical support that has been provided to us. It is a win-win situation for both stakeholders
We have been running Electron for over a year and an half at BSE. Netmagic’s service levels have not dropped, the team is accessible and their turnaround time (TAT) to any operational situation is fast. It is easy to reach their senior management team, which has helped build confidence in Netmagic’s abilities to handle hosting of Elektron efficiently.
