HP og SAP går sammen i skyen

De to it-giganter slår sig sammen for at få SAP CRM systemer ud i skyen via HP Enterprise Services’ cloud-platform.

KøbenhavnI dag løftede HP og SAP AG sløret for et nyt cloud-samarbejde. Samarbejdet kobler HP’s Enterprise Services cloud-platform til at hoste SAP® applikationer. Formålet med aftalen er at gøre det endnu nemmere og billigere for virksomheder at implementere skalerbare it-applikationer.

Den første SAP applikation, der kommer til at blive leveret på en HP Enterprise Services cloud platform er SAP® Customer Relationship Management (SAP CRM) rapid-deployment solution, der er målrettet til at øge produktivteten inden for salg, marketing og service i virksomheder.

“Cloud-løsninger bliver vigtigere og vigtigere for virksomheder fordi de giver nogle åbenlyse forretningsmæssige fordele, er hurtige at implementere, har lave omkostninger og er fleksible” siger Kim Riis Pedersen, der er direktør for Enterprise Services i HP Danmark. ”I samarbejde med SAP gør HP det muligt for vores kunder at komme langt hurtigere i skyen med SAP løsninger.”

“Vi ønsker at give vores kunder fleksibilitet når det kommer til software-udrulning samtidig med at bringer innovation til cloud computing området,” siger Jens Bager, der er ansvarlig for SME ved SAP Danmark. “Gennem vores samarbejde med HP kan vi tilbyde vores kunder en sikker og stabil adgang til essentielle forretningsapplikationer i skyen, der sikrer, at deres omkostninger til hardware og management holdes nede.”

HP er en global SAP-certificeret leverandør af cloud-, applikationsstyrings- og hostingløsninger til skybaserede SAP-applikationer. Det nye fælles SAP CRM rapid-deployment cloud-løsning styrker det 20 år lange samarbejder mellem SAP og HP.
