Partnering with RapidCompute, National Foods chalked out a plan whereby the entire SAP landscape was migrated in phases. At each step of the process, both teams worked for hand in hand to test, migrate and manage instances on the cloud ensuring no hiccups for end-users. During planning, RapidCompute engineers, and NFL teams also performed numerous proof of concepts for database replication, high availability and disaster recovery scenarios. The solution is deployed across multiple availability zones of RapidCompute to provide datacenter level redundancy and low latency.

We feel pleasure in introducing ourselves as a publishing company and our monthly magazine, “NetMag” as Pakistan's first IT & Telecom magazine. The past 19 years have been the "best of the times" for our innovative and self-development magazine. Untold numbers of readers throughout the nation have utilized NetMag as an invaluable guide to achieve personal and professional success. In the new millennium, the mission of our magazine remains ever more relevant. One of the most appealing aspects of the magazine is the variety of cutting-edge content which is research based and well explored for every issue. For example, in most recent editions, readers had the opportunity to learn how today's fast-moving Internet economy has transformed the way people work, shop, play and communicate. The Internet isn’t an extension of the past. It is a new thing. It leverages individuals in ways that go beyond old models. It creates a new order of things where individuals, and not companies, can expect to reap all the benefits of economic gains. Just as the second industrial revolution of the late nineteenth century required a technically literate workforce so the Internet economy over the next generation will need a computer-and-communications-literate workforce. It will need the inventors and innovators to push out the envelope of the possible in the use of this technology as well as its production. It will need the engineers and technicians to staff the information technology and communications industries themselves-and to manage the interfaces between the rest of the economy and information technology. Our targeted content is Internet specific. The site's focused content and editorial quality explain why NetMag users will keep coming back. We try to reach all sects of people through our non-exhaustive distribution network. This includes copies to subscribers and complimentary dispatches. Results-oriented marketers of technology products and services rely on NetMag to help build their brands, generate leads and make sales. Our Internet media properties attract a highly qualified audience of internet and technology users.
