HP becomes SAP-certified global provider of Cloud services

27 Apr 2011 Palo Alto - HP Enterprise Services is among the first partners to become an SAP-certified global provider of Cloud services in support of SAP solutions. HP provides standardized IT solutions and services based on shared resources via the internet enabling the delivery of SAP applications to clients in a scalable manner via HP Hybrid Delivery Cloud Services.

The certification provides assurance to clients using SAP applications through HP's Cloud services that they can benefit from:

  • increased flexibility, which enables business process alignment to meet immediate market demands;
  • rapid provisioning, which speeds their ability to implement application and business process changes; and
  • a highly reliable architecture and access to the latest Cloud services with no infrastructure capital outlay required, which results in much lower costs and risks for companies to consume the full benefits of enterprise applications.

Technology providers seeking certification by SAP must undergo an extensive audit process that validates the operational integration of the provider's Cloud capabilities with SAP applications. The comprehensive audit includes reviews of a services provider's technical, physical, management and logical security processes supporting SAP applications. After successful completion, the entire process undergoes recertification every two years.

The certification covers a range of HP solutions, including application hosting, cloud management, disaster recovery and networking.

"The race to the Cloud is causing many Cloud service providers to offer Infrastructure as a Service, but leave service levels and risk management to their resource-strapped clients", stated Kathy Garcia, senior vice president, Applications, HP Enterprise Services. "With this certification, HP can deliver SAP solutions via the Cloud with increased flexibility and rapid provisioning, resulting in lower costs and less risk for companies to consume the full benefits of enterprise applications."

"The certification confirms HP’s ability to deliver high-quality Cloud services in support of SAP solutions", stated Michael Ressemann, global head, Outsourcing Services and Solution Delivery, SAP. "Through its Cloud services and Hybrid Delivery Cloud platform, in support of SAP solutions, HP gives application service providers the ability to meet their business users' needs quickly and cost-effectively without sacrificing reliability or quality."

The Cloud certification deepens the 20-year relationship between HP and SAP, a member of the HP Agility Alliance. The Agility Alliance is HP Enterprise Services' premiere partner program that brings together industry-leading technology providers to build and deliver comprehensive IT solutions.

The certification will help businesses and governments in their pursuit of an Instant-On Enterprise. In a world of continuous connectivity, the Instant-On Enterprise embeds technology in everything it does to serve customers, employees, partners and citizens with whatever they need, instantly.

HP's premier client event, HP DISCOVER, takes place June 6-10 in Las Vegas and November 29 - December 1 in Vienna, Austria. The event showcases how organisations can get started on their Instant-On Enterprise journeys.
