One of the great things about SAP HANA Cloud Platform is that it lets you get creative building apps. So in that spirit, we decided to get creative, too – and came up with a new promotion to make this incredibly easy-to-use cloud offering from SAP even more affordable. Till June 15, you can get the single application edition at half price. That’s right, 50% off.
But first, let’s take a look at what developers are actually doing with SAP HANA Cloud Platform. As I wrote in my last blog, it lets them say “yes!” to requests from the business to build new apps and extend existing ones, including the ones that have been sitting around for a while. (Any of those on your desk?) These could include anything from HR or CRM extensions to dashboards or logistics. It’s really fast and really reliable, and of course fully backed by SAP.
Here are a few examples to give you an idea of what you can do with it. One development team came up with a mobile app for peer-to-peer recognition that lets employees reward their own colleagues. It integrates in the cloud with the enterprise HR application. This beautiful solution has succeeded in helping the company improve morale and reduce turnover, plus execs and HR managers can analyze performance trends with it.
Another group created a customized portal for logging support tickets from multiple vendor solutions. The application logs the ticket, directly connects the tickets to the right person’s queue, and even enables a video chat (of which I’m a big fan) between the support agent and the end user. Tickets are resolved faster and customer satisfaction ratings have increased tremendously.
It’s no wonder that SAP HANA Cloud Platform has become such a popular product on SAPStore.com, where you can buy it with the click of a button. There’s even an express checkout option with the promotional code already included. Normally, the single application edition is US$43 per user per month, but with this special promotion, you can get 50% off for the first three months. This edition includes SAP HANA, unlimited Web IDE, mobile, social, security, and collaboration services, just to mention a few. It’s the perfect choice for any developer to get started with SAP HANA Cloud Platform. And if you need help, just call the A Team: you can talk to SAP global support experts 24×7.
So what are you waiting for? June 15 is coming up fast – don’t miss this opportunity to build and extend the apps your team is missing!
