SAP HANA is leading the way in digital transformation, across all organizations of all sizes and industries. Organizations using SAP HANA in the Cloud are maximizing process efficiency and performance via real-time data and insight-driven results, becoming even greater and stronger at producing and offering goods or services in the marketplace. SAP HANA provides organizations with the simplified, modern and flexible tool they need to automate back office processes and aid in decision making, so that they can focus on value-added tasks surrounding the business.
SAP HANA is an “in-memory computing platform” that enables organizations to process huge amounts of data in real time, with the data stored in RAM. With SAP HANA, data is immediately accessible through analytics and self service features and removes the outdated model of accessing system data in separate silos. With SAP HANA, integration is key and unlocks the potential for organizations to streamline data processing and to make decisions based on that real-time information.
Organizations looking to migrate to SAP HANA have a number of options available to them in terms of deployment. Organizations can choose to run SAP HANA on premise, on the Cloud or through a hybrid model, combining the best of what each platform has to offer.
SAP HANA is an attractive option for many customers due to the fact that organizations can maximize their current IT investment, running SAP HANA on infrastructure and hardware that the customer already owns.
While SAP HANA can be run on premise, for those who are looking to run SAP HANA in the Cloud, there are a significant number of benefits.
First, you can choose the Cloud model that works best for you.
SAP HANA customers can select the Cloud model that makes the most sense to them and allows them to reach their business goals. Whether you want to run SAP HANA on a private managed Cloud, PaaS, IaaS or through a Public Cloud pay-as-you-go model (SAP HANA One with Alibaba or Amazon Web Services), you can experience the power of SAP HANA through each on your own terms.
You can choose a hybrid approach. Customers choosing the hybrid route can put testing environments in the Cloud prior to implementing changes within the on premise environment. These Cloud options provide unmatched levels of flexibility, harnessing the power of Cloud where needed in a way that makes the most impact.
You can choose a managed Cloud service. The SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud service provides a private managed Cloud for customers looking to run their applications with the level of support they need for faster turn-around and a personalized application experience.
You can choose Platform as a Service. Platform as a Service is also a viable, attractive option for SAP HANA customers. The SAP HANA Cloud Platform is an open PaaS solution, providing the platform to build applications and run operations on the Cloud.
No matter what combination of Cloud organizations choose to run on, SAP HANA revolutionizes data collection and analysis, business performance and industry change.
