Offering Package with SAP System and SOA Verifying Scenario
Tokyo — Hewlett-Packard Japan, Ltd. and SAP Japan have announced SAP Discovery System for enterprise SOA powered by HP, a system package to promote the installation of Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA). This package combines the servers, software tools, and capabilities required to install SOA. It will be available from October 30 through HP Japan.
SAP Discovery System is the package providing sample business scenarios developed in advance based on the integrated platform SAP NetWeaver, the integrated backbone system mySAP ERP, and enterprise SOA which is pre-installed and pre-set on the HP server ProLiant DL380, an industry-standard server. The package also includes sample business scenarios developed in advance based on the integrated platform SAP NetWeaver, the integrated backbone system mySAP ERP, and enterprise SOA. Through this means, customers can actually test new process configurations and flexible updates using enterprise services in a short time and at a comparatively low-cost before actual installation of enterprise SOA. This will help customers deepen their understanding of installation methods using the SOA approach, and gain the knowledge needed to configure business processes using enterprise services.
HP Japan will also establish a SAP NetWeaver solution center. As well as helping customers evaluate and verify enterprise SOA environments using SAP Discovery System, HP Japan will suggest optimal environmental configurations to customers using infrastructure applications from HP and SAP NetWeaver.
Many businesses recognize SOA as a next-generation business architecture. However, a huge effort is required to design systems based on SOA from scratch. Unless the content of services is presented effectively before installation of system, it is difficult for businesses to foresee the cost of an SOA project with the expected results. SAP Discovery System is provided as configured system and enables customers to experience enterprise SOA using the system right after its installation. It breaks this deadlock by reducing the huge amount of time required to construct an environment for considering and verifying enterprise SOA, enabling customers to make an efficient and effective start at implementing enterprise SOA.
SAP Discovery System provides the various enterprise services included in the latest version of mySAP ERP, samples of component applications that utilize them, and the latest version of SAP NetWeaver, which also includes application development tools.
By strengthening our ongoing partnerships, and supporting and promoting the efficient implementation of enterprise SOA by customers, HP Japan and SAP Japan will help customers create flexible IT infrastructure that supports the ongoing modification of business processes.
