Dell Speeds Path to SAP HANA with New Service Offerings in Europe

Dell Services is announcing expanded services in Europe to better help customers design, build and operate the SAP HANA platform. The new offerings will provide assessment, analytic solution design and development, deployment and managed services for customers adopting SAP HANA.

In a highly-competitive business climate, immediate analysis of all operational data ultimately determines the success of an organization.  Responding quickly to changing market conditions is the key to success.  But to achieve that goal, real-time insight into business operations is a must—and that’s where SAP HANA comes in.

SAP HANA is an in-memory database technology solution from SAP.  It pulls operational information from virtually any data source into a single environment and instantly analyses transactions and activities without affecting existing applications or systems. By leveraging a preconfigured and pretested Dell PowerEdge server, certified by SAP to run SAP HANA, and Dell Services customers can expect to: 

  • Make informed decisions faster 
  • Improve operations with new applications
  • Increase performance and decrease total cost of ownership
  • Take advantage of fast implementation

Existing customer Karl Schindler, Head of IT at the Koehler Paper Group commented: “Efficient enterprise resource planning is central to our success.  That’s why we decided we needed to upgrade our existing relational database solution to a cutting-edge infrastructure that could keep us one step ahead of our competition. Dell’s SAP HANA validated appliance and services had a real impact on our day-to-day productivity.  Not only did we have the entire implementation complete in just three days, but we were able to cut data load times from five minutes to five seconds and reduce the cost of our business warehouse system by one third.”  More information on their implementation can be read here.

In addition to the Dell appliance and services for SAP HANA, Dell plans to offer workload-optimized solutions that enable organizations to scale as their data grows. These pretested solutions will leverage the convergence of Dell servers, storage and networking as well as Dell services to help customers make strategic decisions in real time while experiencing fast deployment and reduced time to value.  We hope you will learn more by attending Dell Storage Forum Paris November 14-16 or by visiting booth number 1064 at the SAPPHIRE NOW conference being held in Madrid November 13-16.
