BIELEFELD, Germany, September 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
itelligence AG today announced it is now an SAP-certified provider of hosting services for SAP HANA® Enterprise Cloud technology. itelligence has become one of the first SAP partners to have achieved this certification from SAP for its ability to deliver hosting services for SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud with high-quality operational standards. Customers can now benefit from simple and easy access to SAP HANA® technology provided by itelligence.
itelligence already offers globally hosting services to run SAP HANA successfully and operates system landscapes running on the SAP HANA platform for its customers. Aside from the established European and American markets, itelligence will directly also focus on delivering services to customers in Asia as important fast growing market. itelligence plans to offer there cloud services in support of SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud from its data centers in Malaysia. itelligence will then be in a position to offer services for SAP HANA worldwide, not only via a classical hosting model, but also via cloud services.
Oliver Schreiber, itelligence EVP and Head of Global Business Unit Outsourcing & Services, is pleased about the certification: "As an SAP-certified provider of hosting services for SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud, we can now offer SAP customers a fast and flexible way to get on board with SAP's in-memory technology. With our cloud services offerings, we provide additional opportunities for customers to leverage the benefits of SAP HANA via a delivery concept that does not require them to invest in hardware. As a supplementary service, we can also offer customers the ability to license SAP HANA directly from itelligence, as part of a complete SaaS model, in a rental format within the framework of a monthly subscription service. The customer has access to a simple-to-use, complete package."
In order to offer customers a simple and fast option for using SAP HANA in the future, itelligence is relying ever more on its high-security data centers, on a holistic and integrated service concept to complement the cloud operation. It begins with assessment consulting on the evaluation of operational scenarios for SAP HANA, which can extend further to usability tests for the customer with real data, to migration and onboarding consultation. It also includes application management services well beyond the cloud operation.
As an option, customers can have itelligence optimize their business processes and their in-house developments for the SAP HANA platform, or perhaps open up new scenarios based on SAP HANA with dashboards from itelligence or SAP.
itelligence plans to expand its cloud-based offerings to bring the advantages of SAP HANA to users even faster. With SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud, customers will be able to deploy their critical business applications, such as the SAP ERP and SAP Customer Relationship Management (SAP CRM) applications, and business intelligence solutions from SAP, or even individually developed applications powered by SAP HANA from itelligence's data centers around the world.
itelligence AG has 15 years of experience as a provider of hosting services for SAP solutions, and in its worldwide data centers, operates the systems of more than 400 customers with more than 80,000 users. In addition to successfully managing systems of mid-sized and large companies running SAP HANA, itelligence also offers test migrations with which customers can experience the performance enhancements of in-memory technology even before migrating systems to the SAP HANA platform. itelligence is one of just a few SAP global services partners and SAP global hosting partners that is also an SAP-certified provider of hosting, cloud and application management services for SAP solutions.
