SAP Customer Relationship Management rapid-deployment offering is the first SAP application to be delivered by HP Enterprise Services via its cloud platform, claims company
Information technology company Hewlett-Packard (HP) and German enterprise software company SAP have signed an agreement for HP Enterprise Services to provide cloud-based delivery of SAP applications.
The combination of the HP Enterprise Services and cloud-based delivery of SAP applications enables enterprise customers to increase the availability and speed of business information which leads to faster and more insightful decision making, said HP.
HP said SAP Customer Relationship Management (SAP CRM) rapid-deployment offering is the first SAP application to be delivered by HP Enterprise Services via its cloud platform.
SAP CRM rapid-deployment offering is delivered via HP Enterprise Services’ commercial data centers around the globe and the new SAP offering enhances the productivity of enterprise sales, marketing and service professionals, said the company.
The California-based IT company added that the SAP CRM offering brings together software and services that provide essential CRM functionality, quickly and affordably, while helping clients reduce risk. Clients are provided with secure processing capacity – with security and privacy policies that can rapidly adjust to meet each client’s specific needs.
HP brings together the necessary infrastructure, platform and application services in an as-a-service model, to enable clients to pay on a per-seat basis for what they need to run the applications and processes, said the company.
A ready-to-use combination of software, predefined services and preconfigured content at a fixed price is offered to enterprises with the help of SAP Rapid Deployment offering. These offerings can be deployed much more quickly than traditional methods – often in as little as eight weeks, said HP.
HP Enterprise Services Enterprise Application Services vice president Eric Clark said cloud delivery models are becoming a top priority for clients due to their quick deployments, cost-effectiveness and overall flexibility.
"In collaboration with SAP, HP is empowering clients to dramatically increase the availability and speed of business information via the cloud, paving a flexible path toward future growth," said Clark.
SAP Ecosystem and Channels senior vice-president Kevin Ichhpurani said SAP is committed to providing customers flexibility in software deployment options and innovations in cloud computing.
"Through expanded cloud delivery options via HP, we can provide global users with secure, reliable access to essential business applications while helping companies contain hardware and management costs." said Ichhpurani.
