Why your company should already implement SAP Cloud Platform?
Recently, many companies have been asking themselves which cloud environment they should transfer their company systems to. Those enterprises have already realised that Digital Transformation is a fact.
It is a global process, which also concerns your company. That is why it is a good idea to start implementing cloud solutions now.
What Is SAP Cloud Platform?
SAP has such a solution in its offer – namely, SAP Cloud Platform (formerly SAP HANA Cloud Platform). It is a cloud environment for companies that has a number of useful functionalities. It is based on the super-efficient in-memory technology SAP HANA. It processes data in the internal memory, instead of on the hard drive. This enables obtainment of unprecedented computing power.
SAP Cloud Platform enables the independent creation of cloud applications, expansion of the existing ones and addition of new functionalities to on-premise systems.
What proves to be revolutionary about the transition from the on-premise model to the cloud one is the model for providing the service to the customers. SAP Cloud Platform uses the PaaS (Platform as a Service) model. In practice, this only means fees for the access to selected system functionalities and to the computing power required at a given moment.
The SAP Cloud Platform servers are located in professional Data Centers owned by SAP. That is where enterprise data are processed and collected. The security systems in SAP server rooms prove to be much more reliable than those of individual company servers using the on-premise model. A user does not need to worry about ongoing updates of the platform, or about its infrastructure, either. All of that is handled by SAP. The solution integrates with on-premise SAP systems, such as SAP CRM, SAP ERP and SAP SRM, and with any external sources.
Why SAP Cloud Platform?
SAP Cloud Platform is a key element of SAP Cloud Strategy. It assumes transition of all of the enterprises which use SAP systems to the SAP HANA database. The largest corporations have already decided to use this computing environment. Other companies are offered the use of the cloud model, which solves and improves many processes. It proves profitable even for small and medium-sized enterprises.
