In this blog, we will walk through some of the customer examples on how companies are simplifying their infrastructure to deliver innovations for creating that differentiators in their offerings.
Companies are sitting on a treasure trove of data that contains answers to critical questions about the business. SAP has introduced next generation platform for applications and analytics – SAP HANA that can help to unlock information across all of your existing solutions, including analytics, mobile, and applications, both on-premise and in the cloud. SAP HANA has completely transformed the database industry by combining database, data processing, and application platform capabilities in a single in-memory platform. The platform also provides libraries for predictive, planning, text processing, spatial, and business analytics — all on the same architecture. See Forrester report on how in-memory computing platforms can simplify and accelerate application development. See the customer stories on how companies such as Cisco, eBay, EMC, Lenovo have taken advantage of unique capabilities of the platform.
Companies such as Hewlett Packard, Dell, Insight (see details) is making using of Ariba, cloud-based business commerce network solution to help them discover, connect, and collaborate in today’s digital economy, cutting costs and risks while driving growth
Companies like Citrix (read more) is using API management solution to simplify app development and create engagement. Complexity is reduced with unified access and governance of APIs across a heterogeneous landscape for both in-cloud and on–premise deployment by leveraging a single provisioning platform to drive commercial transactions and subscription growth. SAP API Management can provide SAP and non-SAP backend content securely to developers and 3rd party applications to drive commercial transactions and subscription growth.
It is therefore critical to simplify the infrastructure to take advantage of innovations that you can deliver and the opportunities presented with the digital transformation.
