Dell has announced expanded services to help customers design, build and operate SAP’s HANA solution.
Dell currently provides support for the in-memory database solution, which provides analytics and business intelligence (BI) for multiple business applications. In addition to existing services, the hardware giant is now providing 24x7 managed services for SAP HANA and configuration of SAP data replication services.
Dell Services is also providing database migration services in support of migrating from SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse to SAP HANA, and application development services for SAP HANA –including data integration, data modeling, statistical modeling and performance dashboard/reporting design.
Jan Uhrich, VP at Dell Services, said: “Dell’s work with SAP, as evidenced by the infrastructure being deployed at the University of Kentucky, is part of a larger strategy to provide practical solutions to the complex problems our customers face. Dell Services capabilities include end-to-end solutions to support SAP applications in order to help reduce IT costs at a time when organisations are challenged to make the most of every IT dollar.”
Kevin Ichhpurani, SVP, Ecosystem and Channels at SAP said: “SAP is committed to delivering its solutions in an open and flexible way to support customer success. Organisations implementing SAP HANA realise significant return on investment in terms of productivity and competitive knowledge. Dell’s cooperation with SAP in support of SAP HANA with its infrastructure and cloud solutions will benefit customers, helping them to transform their businesses, flexibly and affordably.”
