Hosting is the Preferred Model for SAP HANA Deployment Compared to On-Premise

Read why

  1. Flexibility & Minimized Risk Scalable application environments that rapidly adjust to changes in business demand.  Provides peak performance on enterprise-grade infrastructure while avoiding maintenance costs and technology obsolescence.

A combined set of certified global resources provides an integrated and efficient approach to support/problem solving without having to hire and train dedicated resources.

  3. Fast Time-to-Production  Quickly deploy new services and capabilities without the need to acquire hardware, hire or divert IT resources from other mission-critical initiatives.
