Cloud is one of the cornerstones of the SAP strategy. For the time being and even in the future, SAP believes in a hybrid cloud world and SAP is therefore supporting all deployment scenarios from On-Premise to Cloud and Hybrid in-between.
Additionally, we are offering cloud services for early prototyping of solutions and POCs as well as productive systems. We truly believe that SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud is the fastest way of starting any SAP HANA related project, independent of the final deployment mode of a customers productive system.
So jumpstart you HANA project quickly with SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud and then choose your preferred productive scenario.
The power of real time plus the simplicity of the cloud for a faster innovation adoption and reduced IT cost
Before: Only on-premise deployment was possible for Suite on HANA applications
Technology innovation with SoH: On-premise, on the cloud (HANA Enterprise Cloud) or hybrid deployment options available
Result: Choice of deployment for customers, on-premise, cloud, hybrid
Business impact: Faster time to value with innovations deployed as business requires Avoid capital expenditures for running mission-critical processes Non-disruptive approach with easy migration and deployment
IT impact: - Accelerate deployment of new solutions and shorten innovation cycles - Allow smart IT investments for high value innovations delivered quicker to the business - Reduce total cost of ownership with the simplicity of the cloud (e.g. no need to wait for hardware, implementation)
The key requirement here is the responsiveness of the system. Business users need immediate answers to very precise questions - otherwise they simply skip. By combining analytics with transactions, business users can now get a unified access to information within context – at finger tip – 360° views of real-time information - on any device - across all SAP Business Suite applications and even beyond, like information from sensors and social media. Suite on HANA returns both structured data (business objects) and unstructured data (HTML files, presentations, documents) from SAP systems and other search providers. It also allows direct access to associated applications and actions. Combined with people-centric interfaces and ‘Google like’ search functionality, this new approach brings much more flexibility, speed and powerful information to users.
As an example, business users usually only enter data when finally required at the latest point in time in the system to avoid repeated waiting times. This drives wrong decisions as data can be required by other departments sooner. Suite on HANA means less waiting times and higher user satisfaction through the use of interactive dashboards as an example, leading to higher responsiveness and process compliance.
This is the beauty of SAP Fiori.
