SAP HANA Cloud Services: Natural Integration and Seamless Migration

SAP HANA Cloud Serices

According to Gartner, cloud application services remain the largest segment of the cloud market, with revenue expected to grow 17.8 percent to reach $85.1 billion in 2019.

For almost a decade now, SAP HANA is recognized as the most valuable technology innovation from SAP with worldwide reach across various industries, helping businesses of all sizes streamline processes, reduce costs, and achieve better business outcomes. SAP HANA has successfully launched several innovations that seamlessly integrate to its platform such as the most recent products of SAP HANA Cloud Services.

Enlyft, a leading digital marketing company in India, shared that there are 7,435 companies that use SAP HANA, with the United States as the top user and Computer Software as the top industry. This data was gathered from the recent four years.

Aside from the given advantage of having a true in-memory data platform to support real-time processing for transactions and data analytics, this impressive number of users could be attributed to SAP HANA’s flexible deployment options such as on-premise and in the cloud.

However, despite the indubitable advantages of scaling to cloud in the age of digital transformation, there are still large corporations that are apprehensive in moving to the cloud because of technical restrictions with having large ERP systems. With the launch of SAP HANA Cloud Services, this relevant concern could be addressed and would allow these organizations to see the capabilities of the platform.

SAP HANA Continues to Evolve

SAP continues to leverage the extensive capabilities of SAP HANA on data management, not only in the cloud but also on-premise with SAP HANA Cloud Services designed to naturally integrate with the existing platforms. This innovative move aims to focus on stability, operational excellence, high availability and low total cost of ownership.

SAP HANA Cloud Services provide a single gateway to cover all the complexities of data management with specific key benefits such as:

Unlimited access to SAP HANA in the cloud

Automatic smart reallocation of storage and computing source, multiple storage options to handle any size and type of data with the SAP HANA data lake, and low total-cost of ownership, high availability, and elasticity are some of the advantages of being in the cloud.

Business-ready information

Here is the much-anticipated product range of SAP HANA Cloud Services soon to be released:

SAP Data Warehouse Cloud

This product offers end-to-end data management and decision making cloud solution designed for business and enterprise-grade experiences. SAP Data Warehouse Cloud combines powerful data management capabilities with the broadest advanced analytics all done in one cloud.

Felix Weber, SAP Consultant, said, 

“The SAP DATA Warehouse Cloud from SAP HANA enables user-companies to find a proper balance between cloud and on-premise provisions. And that actually makes it easier for users to shift to cloud and enjoy all its benefits like improved agility, reduced costs, and increased efficiency.”

He furthered explained that SAP Data Warehouse Cloud will enable users to extend existent shared data locally (resting in the on-premise systems) with their own data in cloud (from previous non-integrated(Non-integrated)systems). Now, this HANA hybrid solution could lead a temporal development to a comprehensive cloud data warehouse.

Addressing elasticity and scalability concerns, SAP Data Warehouse Cloud has come up with a modern concept called “Spaces”. “Spaces” helps to create an infrastructure where a specific user group can consume as well as extend trusted data but without replicating the data beforehand.
