4 Reasons Consumption-Based IT Is Right for Your SAP HANA Migration

Posted on: November 1st, 2018 by american digital

The SAP® platform clock is ticking.

For all the resources spent trying to keep up with rapid technology-landscape changes, the 2025 deadline for SAP ERP users to migrate to SAP HANA is looming large.

With its in-memory computing capabilities, SAP HANA offers data-processing power and real-time analytics opportunities that legacy enterprise resource planning (ERP) software simply can’t match. However, traditional IT environments were never built to support the explosive data growth unlocked by in-memory computing. That’s why, even though the deadline is years away, now is the time to start planning your migration.

For enterprises with heavily-customized SAP systems, the prospect of migrating to SAP HANA may seem daunting. But when you choose a hosted, consumption-based deployment model, you can bypass the complexity of on-premises management without sacrificing control or reliability.

Blending On Premises and On Demand Through Consumption-Based IT

One of the greatest advantages of SAP HANA over its predecessor is speed. The in-memory processing allows you to derive insights from millions of data points much faster than traditional databases.

However, IT leaders that have already considered a move to SAP HANA know that this data processing power comes with an important decision — do you keep SAP HANA on premises or move it to the cloud for greater agility?

Many current SAP HANA deployments have prioritized on-premises equipment to maximize both security and performance. While cloud-based deployments offer unrivaled cost-efficiency and agility, the trade-offs often prove too significant for such a mission-critical platform.

Focus on a consumption model that blends both worlds — on-premises control and performance with cloud agility and cost-efficiency. Now, with an infrastructure solution like HPE GreenLake, you can get an on-premises pay-per-use solution that’s built specifically for SAP HANA.
