HP Announces Global Availability of HP As-a-service Solution for SAP HANA

Game-changing solution helps clients quickly analyze big data, unlock real-time insight while lowering costs

PALO ALTO, Calif. — HP today announced that the HP As-a-Service Solution for the SAP HANA® platform is now available worldwide. 

Announced 12 months ago, the game-changing HP As-a-Service solution for SAP HANA can include the software license for SAP HANA, along with hardware and ongoing management services, bundled into a complete solution provided in a cost-effective, as-a-service model.

Clients such as Origin Energy, Avon Cycles and Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories have utilized the HP As-a-Service Solution for SAP HANA to harness the benefits of in-memory computing and analytics with greater speed and agility while reducing risk and significantly lowering upfront costs—all via a simple-to-understand, monthly subscription fee.

“Our clients have shown significant adoption and interest in the HP As-a-Service Solution for SAP HANA,” said Mike Nefkens, executive vice president and general manager, HP Enterprise Services. “Whether a client wants help in defining the business case for SAP HANA or a full-blown as-a-service solution, HP and SAP have the skills and capabilities to make this a reality.”

With its comprehensive capabilities, HP is especially well positioned to provide clients with an end-to-end service by integrating the HP Appliance Portfolio for SAP HANA, HP Infrastructure and Application Management Services for SAP HANA, HP Industry and Strategic Services for SAP HANA, and HP Helion Cloud and Security Services for SAP HANA into a single architecture and value proposition that can be offered under one commercial agreement. The solution allows SAP HANA to be consumed on a subscription basis, as milestone payments, or as “bring your own license,” helping clients unlock the value from already-purchased SAP HANA licenses.

“The ongoing investment HP is making in market-leading value propositions such as the HP As-a-Service Solution for SAP HANA, demonstrates that we have a complementary agenda—to deliver extraordinary value to clients,” said Justin Battles, global vice president, Corporate Business Development, SAP. “HP’s capabilities and collaborative approach means it is well positioned to deliver on the promise of SAP HANA to clients.”

HP and SAP are collaborating on various initiatives for SAP HANA to continue to deliver a step-change in value to the market. Examples of this include the next generation of HP ConvergedSystems and HP AppSystems for SAP HANA, enhancing HP’s Helion Virtual Private Cloud capabilities for SAP HANA, developing Industry-specific solutions for SAP HANA, and identifying joint channels to market in efforts to further accelerate business uptake.
