SAP is the world leader in enterprise applications and delivers the most comprehensive portfolio of line-of-business cloud applications. SAP has around 30 million users divided across four core verticals namely: People, Customer, Money and Supplier.
The recent vision of SAP is to have a unified cloud strategy to help businesses integrate their existing enterprise solutions into one SAP HANA cloud platform.
SAP HANA Cloud Platform comes with prepackaged integration flows that lets the customers use the best-practice templates in order to integrate their SAP software investments with line-of-business cloud applications and best-of-breed third-party applications. The biggest benefit offered by such integration is in terms of cost. Without any hassles, one can easily upgrade their existing set up and shift their entire business enterprise solutions across SAP HANA.
Major Players Who are Already Adopting SAP HANA
Digital identity security provider, Certified Security Solutions (CSS), is working with SAP to integrate the CSS Verdetto IoT Identity Platform with the SAP HANA Cloud Platform for Internet of Things (IoT) applications. Other companies who deal with a vast amount of big data like the $18 billion consumer goods giant, ConAgra Foods, classifieds search engine Adswish, regional airlines like Bangkok Airways etc have already implemented or should implement SAP HANA in order to effectively handle the big data load and to simulate the entire business activities.
How to Get Ready For SAP HANA Implementation?
The following steps will significantly boost up the success ratio of a proper SAP HANA implementation:
1- Cleanse your data and identify which data sets needs to be migrated. Data cleansing will take care of all the factors needed to accurately size your required SAP HANA hardware. This will also help to remove the bad data and make way for effective and timely integration.
2- Keep a knowledge transfer plan ready. The core teams handling the data should be informed about the integration and how they can successfully deal with the after effects of a new platform without any loss of productivity.
3- SAP HANA will interact with other systems that are already in place so make sure to define a proper approach to the implementation.
4- Have a expert team ready who can take care and guide about any technicalities that one might face during or after the implementation phase.
Why Choose SAP HANA?
The core of SAP HANA is build up of SAP HANA App Services, SAP HANA DB Services and SAP HANA Infrastructure Services. These services lets customers quickly deploy their existing HANA licenses in the cloud for use with HCP. Moreover, it lets a business create custom prototypes that SAP-using clients can touch and feel. With a promise to deliver the best security and smooth implementation, SAP HANA is growing rapidly to take over the cloud business community.
