Syslink Becomes Avantra

February 2020

Synova Capital (“Synova”) portfolio company, Syslink Xandria, announces the launch of its new name and brand, Avantra; the company specialises in providing software, which empowers businesses to tackle complex SAP operations through its AI driven solutions.

SAP customers and Service Providers are under pressure to improve business experience, reduce outages and improve audit compliance – all while reducing the cost-to-serve and delivering digital transformation. To address this, Syslink Xandria announces Avantra – the next generation AIOps platform that eliminates the need for repetitive SAP operations and moves users towards the self-healing enterprise.

To lead this strategic change and to accelerate market adoption, Avantra has appointed a new CEO, John Appleby, who steps up from his role as the company’s chief revenue officer.

John Appleby, who was the Global Head of DDM/HANA COE at SAP and member of the SAP Mentors group, commented: “Today marks the next stage in the evolution of our platform. We launched 20 years ago, and our aim then was to reduce the overhead of SAP operations and improve visibility into SAP landscapes.”
