Leveraging Hana Enterprise Cloud as a deployment option has specific benefits related to TCO. Often CIOs are concerned with the amount of hardware required on-premise to run their software and applications. They also have to consider additional maintenance tasks, such as: life cycle management,
data failover, recovery maintenance and installing service packs. Along with technology costs they are also concerned with maintaining and up-skilling resources necessary to support on-premise solutions.
With HANA Enterprise Cloud many of these costs are reduced and/or streamlined by leveraging SAP’s subscription based model. This predictability makes it easier for the finance LOB to manage costs and align budgets, which allows for allocation of funding for different types of innovate projects and programs. By rethinking the approach to managing technology, it creates a positive cycle of driving innovation and creating higher value for the business.
