Before we understand the benefits of SAP HANA, let’s look at the options available to customers in SAP cloud solutions.
IAAS (Infrastructure as a Service): This option is also known as a private management cloud. Customers who perform on-premises SAP and want maximum customization, SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud, and Private Cloud are the best choices. Customers can deploy licensed SAP applications in the enterprise cloud.
PAAS (Platform as a Service): With the SAP cloud platform, customers can build new cloud applications. You can extend on-premises and cloud applications. As SAP rightly says, SCP is “a platform for all needs”
The SAP cloud platform provides out-of-the-box services for:
- Predictive analytics of sap cloud platforms
- SAP Cloud Platform Digital Assistant
- SAP Cloud Platform Machine Learning
- SAP Cloud Platform IOT
- SAP Cloud Platform Artificial Intelligence
- Cloud casting environment
- Spatial data processing
- Text analysis and search
- HANA Blockchain
Public cloud (software as a service): This is called the SAP S4 HANA cloud. SAP offers different solutions in various areas: Ariba (Supplier Relationship Management Products), Field Glass (External Talent Management and Service Procurement Products), Hybris (Customer Relationship Management Products), Success Factors (Human Capital Management Products), Concur (Travel Management Products)
Benefits of cloud-based IT services:
- Fast implementation
- Hardware and software are the responsibility of the cloud solution provider
- Subscription-based model flexibility: Pay for usage
- High availability
I want to classify THE RETURN ON INVESTMENT IN THE SAP HANA CLOUD INTO THE FOLLOWING CATEGORIES:
1. Cost advantages:
With the right SAP HANA cloud partner, you can actually save a lot of money when implementing or migrating the SAP HANA cloud. According to a recent cost analysis by the analytics group Forrester, migrating SAP implementations to SAP HANA Cloud can save 37% of total cost of ownership in just three years, without taking into account the immediate business benefits that SAP HANA Cloud offers.
2. Business advantages:
Shorter implementation time – Cloud principles reduce time across projects. Save time between the build and test phases. Reducing implementation time reduces the overall workload of external consultants and client project teams and reduces the overall cost of implementation.
Reduce support costs – Moving to the SAPHANA cloud means a new type of contract will be executed. Use annual subscriptions, including core licenses, solution hosting, and box-level support. In addition, SAP HANA cloud solutions are less customizable than traditional SAP ECC on-premises solutions, reducing application support costs.
Recovery Standards – For many SAP ECC customers who use mature SAP ECC systems, the level of complexity increases over time. Some complexities may be required, while others are not. Based on SAP best practices, starting with clean, simple solutions enables many customers to work more efficiently and efficiently.
SAP’s strategic direction – SAP’s clear direction is to make products a cloud-first tool. This means that all new features are released first and the cloud version before the on-premises version (for the cloud version, only four times a year and only once in the on-premises solution).
Integration Flexibility – SAP HANA Cloud is not a one-stop shop for all enterprise tools. In the product, there are apIs that can be used to link to other systems, such as the success factor Hybris. HANA cloud consolidation is used to meet all consolidation needs.
