HP and SAP Collaborate to Deliver HP As-a-Service Solution

HP and SAP Collaborate to Deliver HP As-a-Service Solution for SAP HANA


Solution helps clients harness the benefits of real-time insight for instant business outcomes

AUCKLAND, New Zealand, August 26, 2013 —HP today introduced the HP As-a-Service Solution for SAP HANA®, a solution that allows organisations to analyse big data and unlock real-time insight—without the burden of a significant upfront capital investment.

The HP As-a-Service Solution for SAP HANA bundles the SAP HANA software license along with hardware and on-going management into a complete solution provided in a cost-effective, as-a-service model. The as-a-service model allows clients to avoid capital expenditure and lower the total cost of ownership—clients simply pay a monthly subscription fee for the total solution.

Combining HP’s deep expertise in information management and analytics with the real-time platform of SAP, HP clients may harness the benefits of in-memory computing and analytics to rapidly analyse and make decisions on significant amounts of data at a cost and pace that makes sense for their business.

“Today’s market pressures create the need for companies to know in real time what is going on with their enterprise, their clients and even their competitors, so they can stay competitive,” said David Caspari, managing director, HP South Pacific. “When HP and SAP innovate together, we raise the bar on what is possible for our clients by providing real-time insights.”

The new solution runs in an HP Managed Cloud environment, either as a managed virtual private cloud or a managed private cloud, within a regionalised, enterprise-class HP data centre facility. It is powered by the SAP-certified HP AppSystem for SAP HANA.

The new solution also is enabled by the HP Migration Factory for SAP HANA to provide best-in-class migration. These migration services ensure HP will plan, migrate, validate, secure and deliver clients’ mission-critical data onto the SAP HANA platform. All migration services are performed under SAP-certified methodology and validated with HP’s global SAP certifications to successfully design, build, integrate and run SAP systems globally.

“SAP is laser-focused on our joint clients’ business challenges and technology needs, and with HP as our strategic partner we are delivering integrated solutions that enable them to become best-run businesses,” said Andrew Barkla, president and managing director, SAP Australia and New Zealand. “This new offering is part of SAP’s HANA Enterprise Cloud strategy to offer mission-critical end-to-end managed cloud services to its customers, both directly and through its valued partners such as HP. HP As-a-Service Solution for SAP HANA is a great example of the unique value both companies bring to consistently exceed our clients’ expectations to accelerate innovation with minimal disruption.”

Other HP Services for SAP HANA include:

HP Migration Factory for SAP HANA: HP also has established a global Migration Factory for SAP HANA to support clients who choose to fully or partially move to SAP HANA, along with providing the transformational services they require to best implement SAP HANA capabilities in their business. Delivered through HP Enterprise Services’ globally distributed Industrialised Delivery Centres, the HP Migration Factory for SAP HANA will leverage HP’s deep implementation and management capabilities for SAP® solutions and is supported by senior consultants, data scientists and technology experts in HP’s global Centres of Excellence for SAP.

Through the HP Migration Factory for SAP HANA, HP can offer its clients true end-to-end services to move to the SAP Business Suite powered by SAP HANA. This includes the initial business case, roadmap development, global migration and transformation consulting capabilities.

HP Implementation Services for SAP Solutions: HP has a wide range of consulting and integration capabilities to implement, integrate and enhance client environments running SAP applications. In addition to offering traditional implementation and upgrade services for SAP ERP, SAP Customer Relationship Management, supply chain and business warehousing applications, HP is transforming clients’ environments with mobility services that enable critical business process access for mobile users. HP also can offer clients cloud services to host SAP applications and rapid-deployment solutions to address industry and horizontal solutions. HP’s rapid deployment solutions are designed to accelerate business outcomes for its clients.

HP Enterprise Cloud Services for SAP Solutions: HP’s Enterprise Cloud Services’ Managed Cloud platform for SAP applications provide clients with a flexible pricing model that introduces Infrastructure-as-a-Service and Platform-as-a-Service models for SAP business suite applications and SAP mobility solutions—either as a virtual private cloud or managed private cloud. With this cloud-based model, clients only pay for needed capacity and may no longer need to make capital investments in hardware infrastructure. HP’s cloud-based service for SAP applications enables clients to provision and deploy applications in weeks rather than months and scale capacity—up or down—as application and business requirements change.

HP Applications Management Services for SAP Solutions: HP provides applications management services for SAP solutions to clients who wish to outsource support for SAP applications through variable and adjustable service agreements. This provides clients the flexibility required to manage costs and meet business requirements. These services are aligned to business goals and company performance.

Pricing and availability
The HP As-a-Service Solution for SAP HANA will be available worldwide with initial rollout in Australia and New Zealand. Pricing will vary according to client need.

HP’s premier EMEA client event, HP Discover, takes place Dec. 10-12 in Barcelona, Spain.
