Value ID for SAP HANA Enables Dell Services Customers

SAP HANA converges database and application platform capabilities in-memory to place predictive analytics, spatial processing and data virtualization on the same architecture, which allows businesses to transform transactions, analytics, text analysis, predictive and spatial processing so they can operate in real-time.

But, before implementing SAP HANA, organizations need to be able to justify the investment. CIOs often are called on to answer questions regarding return on investment, or asked to supply business cases for SAP HANA pertaining to their unique environment. Without understanding the comprehensive value proposition of the SAP HANA platform, it can be next to impossible to realize its full benefits—not only from an analytical perspective, but also for day-to-day business operations.

“Many of our customers say it sounds very compelling, interesting, but before I make the investment into the licenses or hardware, I would like to prototype,” Dell Services SAP Practice Director Sebastian Gueler noted. “Dell is providing its own HANA cloud and services which means without having to buy the licenses or hardware it is possible to use Dell’s cloud HANA environment to do some prototyping, proof of concept, to promote the business case.”

Dell also helps organizations discover unique SAP HANA use cases that can support, and even transform, business processes. Powered by a comprehensive use case library, our value identification service for SAP HANA maximizes IT investments and increases overall business value. Dell provides organizations with the following:

  • A value statement and full list of benefits
  • Upgrade and migration requirements
  • Details of any infrastructure changes needed
  • Business case, return on investment calculation and an entire roadmap for SAP HANA use
  • A cloud-based SAP HANA development lab to prototype use cases, before making licensing or infrastructure investments

Dell Services recently held a webinar where our SAP experts discussed the value of implementing the innovative, in-memory technology of SAP HANA end to end with one trusted partner —  from planning to realization and ongoing support.
