Infosys SAP HANA Practice
Enabling client enterprises to embrace SAP HANA and get the most value
Today, no business that wants to stay relevant with customers would want to tolerate any lag in the speed at which business-critical information gets to it. Even so, most enterprises are struggling to draw strength in a timely manner from the vast reserves of information tucked away within their walls. This is where Infosys and SAP HANA (high-performance analytics appliance) can help.
SAP HANA uses massive capacity in-memory analytics (which represents as much as a thousand-fold increase in computing speed and the ability) to analyze hundreds of terabytes of data, all in real time. In doing so, SAP HANA drives fundamental change to the way business leaders view processes, decisions, and business models.
SAP HANA optimizes SAP Business Suite processes, leveraging merged online transaction processing (OLTP) and online analytical processing (OLAP) on a single platform. With SAP HANA, organizations can rid their ecosystem of data latency. What’s more, it helps reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) using a simplified architecture.
Infosys offers solutions around SAP BW, SAP CRM and SAP Business Suite migration, transformation services and rapid-deployment to speed the transition to a SAP HANA in-memory database platform. Alongside our proprietary Value Realization methodology (VRM™), these solutions help clients get the most value from their investments in SAP HANA in-memory technology.
We have also invested in Infosys SAP HANA Center of Excellence (COE), a significant body of knowledge, to develop industry-specific prototypes, proof of concepts (POC), demos, and ensure process improvements on a continuous basis. The COE also plays a critical role in accelerating return on investment (ROI) for clients.
Infosys SAP HANA COE serves as a catalyst, providing measurable business results for clients in activities like:
- Providing subject matter experts to support the client’s project teams, so they can expedite HANA-based deliveries
- Accelerating transition to next-generation business applications and analytics
- Developing, testing and providing demos of accelerators and apps – on HANA
- Building case studies and business scenarios
- Optimizing SAP HANA solutions across the entire life cycle
- Streamline HANA project management capabilities using Angel Program
- Building and sharing domain knowledge on HANA to help clients achieve more ROI faster
In effect, Infosys HANA COE is a nodal point that intersects several core capabilities like onshore–offshore delivery centers; domain experts in multiple business verticals; the SAP Labs–SAP Solution Management Center– Infosys Labs partnership; as well as project teams at client sites.
Infosys partners with SAP to deliver HANA in-memory technology solutions, including BW on HANA, CRM on HANA, Business Suite of HANA and Near Line Storage (NLS). Our offerings help client businesses leverage their tidal wave of enterprise data and, in the process, improve decision-making capabilities across the client organization.
