Transition to your Managed Service
Our portfolio of services has been carefully constructed to provide our customers access to the right people and expertise throughout the end-to-end lifecycle of their SAP investment. Whilst building your SAP HANA platform, we ensure that the system reflects the criteria agreed during the design phase. At handover the SAP HANA platform is Business or Basis ready, depending on your preference. During this phase, key decisions will be made regarding the levels of availability, scalability and flexibility your business requires, all of which have a significant impact on the required platform architecture, and our design will reflect a cost-optimised end-to-end deployment.
Realtime Platform Insight
Your platform comprises many tightly integrated technologies, including the SAP HANA database, Linux Operating System and in-memory compute infrastructure, as well as the SAP applications themselves. Seemingly small issues can have severe effects on a business, and so comprehensive and real-time platform insight becomes vital.
