Exciting news – SAP now offers the ‘Best Practices for Chemicals’ industry template of preconfigured business processes for the chemical industry in a cloud-based environment for demos and evaluation and for ‘instant’ provisioning of a completely installed system in a private cloud, allowing for significant project acceleration. The system can be made available in a matter of hours, entirely eliminating the time needed to set up and test the industry template. To overcome hardware and infrastructure hurdles that often delay the start of projects, cloud-based quick start for rapid-deployment solutions allow customers to kick-off a project in the cloud, using their own data. With this new SAP service offering, projects can be started before infrastructure and hardware investments have been made. Projects can be pre-assembled for evaluation and fine-tuning in the cloud. At any given time, the project can be migrated to the final production environment, either on-premise or to a cloud environment.
