Life in a Big Data World

Today’s IT is no match for the real-time, data-driven world we live and work in. Most organizations have IT environments full of aging infrastructure that is not intended for information management but takes a lot of staff time and resources to maintain.


SAP customers are looking to provide their business with real time access to critical data, reduce complexity, and lower risk and costs.  Typically SAP environments are burdened with legacy data bases that are

  • Complex  - multiple SAP instances often built on different data bases for analytics/reporting, data  warehousing and to run business applications
  • Disconnected and disintegrated – piece-part hardware that prevents seamlessly scaling of dedicated SAP environments or from bringing SAP environments online quickly and effortlessly
  • Compromised – legacy data bases that are too slow and costly plus difficult to manage.


SAP customers want to simplify.


SAP customers are looking to emerging in-memory computing technologies like SAP HANA to access large amounts of transactional and analytics data very, very quickly. SAP HANA offers an integrated information management system that combines data from multiple sources, significantly improving processing speeds, and supports powerful, real-time text searching and data mining modeling abilities.  SAP customers can simplify their SAP environment by unifying their data management platform and remove cost from running legacy data bases. 


Choose the right delivery model.


Customers are making long-term, strategic architectural bets for their data centers and data management platforms. SAP HANA provides a catalyst for business transformation but it’s critical to develop the right strategy and partnerships that minimize risk and don’t disrupt data center operations during deployment.


SAP HANA was first built on top of HP hardware. HP has the committed long-term roadmap and investments with a deep bench of experience in SAP to enable choice from on-premise systems, to hosted offerings and Cloud. We are the only SAP partner who has the architecture, expertise and vision to meet SAP HANA infrastructure needs by offering HP ConvergedSystem – a portfolio of pre-integrated, workload-optimized systems that are that are fast, simple and cloud-compatible.
