Big data analytics has brought HP and SAP together in a venture that is meant to offer the big data insight without necessitating an upfront payment. The venture is called the SAP HANA that is driven by HP.
The product includes SAP HANA software license, hardware and management services. HP representatives said that the product will leverage HP’s information management and analytics.
The service that is touted to be the next big release runs through a managed cloud architecture and is available via a monthly fee. The program can be accessed by global clients and it offers migration. The HP representatives also mentioned that the product will be initially released only in Australia and New Zealand. Global clients will be granted access in the second round.
Jules Beck, Vice President at HP for enterprise application services spoke highly of the new service. The collaboration between HP and SAP would, according to him, change the competition levels and raise the bar on expectations from clients. While the competition is cut throat to say the least, collaborations such as the one between HP and SAP will create a hurdle that the competition will not be able to jump above.
Jules Beck was quoted as saying, “Today’s market pressures create the need for companies to know in real time what is going on with their enterprise, their clients and even their competitors, so they can stay competitive.” The new product that HP and SAP are collaborating on will cater to the exact needs of the current market.
Eric Johnson, Senior Vice President, SAP, for database and technology solutions was quoted as saying, “SAP is laser-focused on our joint clients’ business challenges and technology needs, and with HP as our strategic partner we are delivering integrated solutions.”
The partnership between HP and SAP seems promising and it is the next step for clients who can expect the world on a silver platter and receive it as well.
