Contributors: Derek Oats

Today, customers are under tremendous pressure to keep up with the demands of business in a globally, digitally connected world. To succeed, they have to operate as a real-time, data-driven business that captures information from all data sources and act on it with little to no delay. Thousands of companies have left behind the complexity that had built up over decades and are now adopting the SAP HANA Platform to unlock their business potential and transform their business for the digital economy. With more than 10,000 customers running on the SAP HANA Platform, the stability, innovation and value SAP HANA delivers to customers running SAP applications such as SAP Business Suite, SAP S/4HANA, SAP Business Warehouse powered by SAP HANA and non-SAP  is truly unique and powerful. SAP HANA is an in-memory platform that can process both transactions and analytics using single data copy and delivers real-time insights to act in-the-moment. With its advanced data processing capabilities such as predictive, spatial, graph, text analytics, search and streaming, SAP HANA reduces the time to build next generation applications that helps you grow revenue and enter new markets. SAP Global Database Migration Factory Program is a strategic initiative designed to simplify adoption of SAP HANA Platform or SAP ASE for customers migrating from any third-party database in the market. This program brings the best of database migration tools, accelerators, industry best practices that are available within SAP and from SAP’s trusted and proven SI partners to help simplify customer experience in migrating to SAP HANA Platform or SAP ASE on premise, cloud, or within a hybrid model. Fora limited time, SAP is also offering product promotions, incentives and no-cost services offerings to help customers migrate to SAP HANA Platform from any third-party database. With the recent price increases of the run time licenses for one of the legacy databases running SAP business applications, it has never been a better time for SAP customers to take advantage of the limited time promotions and significantly lower TCO by running SAP applications on SAP HANA. SAP customers exploring SAP HANA as an option, can now take advantage of the following no-cost service offering from the SAP Global Database Migration Factory Program:

  1. Database Migration Technical Assessment which includes scoping, sizing, estimation and end to end roadmap creation for migration
  2. Short POC/Prototype to demonstrate database migration feasibility
