Cloud computing is an important resource that has gained growing support businesses of all sizes worldwide. These businesses are attracted to the cost-effective competitive benefits the cloud affords to smaller business. By providing access to tools that otherwise would be unavailable to them, cloud computing enables companies to become more agile, operate more efficiently and grow.
Simply put, cloud computing makes it possible for users to access data, applications, and services over the Internet. The cloud eliminates the need for costly hardware, such as hard drives and servers – and gives users the ability
to work from anywhere. Over 90% of businesses are already using cloud technology in a public, private or hybrid cloud environment.
The most important reasons for customers to consider cloud-based computing:
Fast implementation time, providing quick access to functionality
Reduced IT efforts because both hardware and software operation and maintenance are the provider’s responsibility
Flexibility due to subscription rather than licensing contracts and “pay-what-you-use” concepts
Scalability to support changing business needs and supporting growth strategy
A business that uses next-generation applications can work better with the SAP HANA in the cloud. The platform lets you extend existing applications and build new apps in the cloud. SAP HANA is an in-memory cloud platform designed for the highly data-driven, social, mobile, and networked user. This makes it ideal for a business that takes advantage of continuously evolving data sharing trends.
Feature-packed for business
The platform has many different features that can let you build, manage, and deploy cloud-based enterprise applications to go with your existing SAP and non-SAP solutions or extend them in the cloud or on-premises. Flexible subscription models and other services for database, apps, and infrastructure enable easy access to SAP HANA’s full power.
Expand the value of your existing applications
If you have existing enterprise solutions in the cloud or running on-premises, SAP HANA offers connectivity through the cloud connectivity service. This way, you can streamline the integration of new applications with the assurance of the lowest possible overall cost of ownership.
SAP HANA in the cloud can let you build and deploy consumer and business applications fast while ensuring new functionality that meets emerging business needs. At the same time, it lets you connect with customers through more engaging experiences.
Improve ROI, decrease costs
SAP HANA in the cloud does not require up-front capital investment in software or hardware for partners and customers, resulting in a more cost-effective service with minimal risk. Once it is applied, the cloud provider will manage platform operations to minimize the cost of deploying and developing cloud applications.
