HP As-a-Service Solution for SAP HANA launched

HP As-a-Service Solution for SAP HANA allows businesses to analyze big data and unlock real-time insight.

The new solution allows enterprise CIOs to avoid making significant upfront capital investment.

HP on Monday announced that the HP As-a-Service Solution for SAP HANA bundles the SAP HANA software license along with hardware and ongoing management into a complete solution.

Enterprise CIOs will benefit as the as-a-service model allows businesses to avoid capital expenditure and lower the total cost of ownership.

Clients simply pay a monthly subscription fee for the total solution. The HP As-a-Service Solution for SAP HANA will be initially in Australia and New Zealand. Launch in other parts of the world will be soon.

HP says price of the new SAP solution will vary according to client need.

“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 Jules Beck, vice president, Enterprise Application Services, HP.

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

“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,” said Eric Johnson, senior vice president, SAP Database and Technology Solutions.

Recently, HP Enterprise Services joined hands with SAP to offer managed mobility services to clients. Through the partnership with SAP, HP Enterprise Services aims at converting its customer interactions into revenue opportunities and improve employee productivity with mobile applications.
