SAP Cloud Platform – changes not only in the product name?
The renaming of one of SAP’s flagship products has made quite a few waves. SAP HANA Cloud Platform is now the SAP Cloud Platform. It is worth remembering when looking for information on this technology. What is the reason for the change and is it purely rebranding?
SAP Cloud Platform – a step towards PaaS
Rebranding this product is primarily aimed at highlighting the wide range of its capabilities. Of course, it is the super-efficient SAP HANA which is the database on which the SAP Cloud Platform is based. It is capable of making huge amounts of calculations in a very short amount of time. However, SAP Cloud Platform is also able to integrate with a number of unique technologies, and this is very important. They include the following:
- Internet Things
- Mobile technologies
- User Experience
- Hadoop in the cloud
It is also worth remembering that SAP Cloud Platform is a strategic SAP product. It is part of the company’s broader approach to the future offers, including such products as SAP HANA and SAP S 4/HANA.
Migrating corporate systems to these innovative products is a step towards providing SAP services in PaaS instead of on-premise. This means, in practice, that the customer may forget about a number of responsibilities related to system maintenance in their company. Instead of implementing complicated procedures and migrations, the customer can choose from the specific advantages of given systems without having to buy the entire packages.
SAP applications in the cloud
SAP Cloud Platform is an environment where many business applications are developed and deployed, spanning multiple business areas. These include solutions that streamline processes related to such systems as ERP, CRM, and SRM.
