HP and SAP accelerate Cloud deployments for clients

5 Oct 2011 Palo Alto - HP and SAP AG have signed an agreement for HP Enterprise Services to provide Cloud-based delivery of SAP applications that enable enterprises to deploy applications in a scalable and affordable manner. The combination of these solutions will empower enterprise customers to dramatically increase the availability and speed of business information, leading to faster and more insightful decision making.

The first SAP application to be delivered by HP Enterprise Services via its Cloud platform is the SAP Customer Relationship Management (SAP CRM) rapid-deployment solution, which can enhance the productivity of enterprise sales, marketing and service professionals.

Delivered via HP Enterprise Services' commercial data centers around the globe, the SAP CRM

rapid-deployment solution brings together software and services that provide essential CRM functionality, quickly and affordably, while helping clients reduce risk. Clients are provided secure processing capacity - with security and privacy policies that can rapidly adjust to meet each client's specific needs.

HP bundles the necessary infrastructure, platform and application services in an as-a-service model, enabling clients to pay on a per-seat basis for what they need to run the applications and processes.

"Cloud delivery models are becoming a top priority for clients due to their quick deployments, cost-effectiveness and overall flexibility", stated Eric Clark, vice president, Enterprise Application Services, HP Enterprise Services. "In collaboration with SAP, HP is empowering clients to dramatically increase the availability and speed of business information via the Cloud, paving a flexible path toward future growth."

By accessing SAP CRM and subsequent applications in the Cloud, enterprises can benefit from easier and faster deployments. SAP Rapid Deployment solutions offer enterprises a ready-to-use combination of software, predefined services and preconfigured content at a fixed price. These solutions can be deployed much more quickly than traditional methods - often in as little as eight weeks.

"SAP is committed to providing customers flexibility in software deployment options and innovations in Cloud computing", stated Kevin Ichhpurani, senior vice president, Ecosystem and Channels, SAP. "Through expanded Cloud delivery options via HP, we can provide global users with secure, reliable access to essential business applications while helping companies contain hardware and management costs."

HP is an SAP-certified global provider of Cloud services, application management services and hosting services, providing high-quality standards for cloud-based delivery of SAP applications. Offering the SAP CRM rapid-deployment solution as a Cloud-based offering broadens the 20-year relationship between SAP - a member of the HP Agility Alliance - and HP.

The Agility Alliance is HP Enterprise Services' premiere partner programme, bringing together

industry-leading technology providers to build and deliver comprehensive IT solutions.
