Here’s how SAP Cloud Services boost your digital transformation efforts
The world is getting more digitalized with the emergence of new and advanced technology.

Digital transformation is essential for enterprises to integrate and take advantage of these technological advancements.

Although it is not the single biggest factor, digital transformation is a crucial part of any company’s overall growth plan. How an enterprise executes its digital transformation process is what ultimately makes or breaks its growth strategy.

Introducing modern technology to an enterprise’s people, processes, and operations enables it to immediately adapt to opportunities and/or disruptions, satisfy customer expectations, and inspire future development and innovation.

What is SAP HANA Cloud

The enterprise data can be accessed, stored, and quickly processed with SAP HANA Cloud.

This Cloud-native platform minimizes the difficulty of multi-Cloud or hybrid system landscapes.

For the in-memory or on-disk processing of multi-model data, SAP HANA Cloud services offer all of the modern SAP HANA technologies.

Utilizing SAP HANA Cloud as a complete solution or as an addition to the current on-premise infrastructure will allow taking advantage of cloud features like regular software updates, elasticity, and affordable total operating costs.

Components of SAP Cloud Services

Following are the components that comprise SAP HANA Cloud:

  • SAP HANA Cloud, SAP HANA database

The SAP HANA Cloud, or SAP HANA database, is an in-memory database that offers all of the modern SAP HANA technologies for multi-model data processing, including graph, spatial, and JSON document storage.

  • SAP HANA Cloud, Data lake

Structured, semi-structured, and unstructured data can be stored in and analyzed using the data lake feature of the SAP HANA Cloud. The SAP HANA Cloud, data lake also offers advanced problem-solving abilities for petabyte volumes of relational data.

While ensuring top-notch performance and complete SQL access to data, it reduces expenses by utilizing affordable storage solutions. To deliver high-performance analysis on demand and enable cost control when it is not in use, it also comprises elastically scalable computing nodes.

What SAP Cloud Services have to Offer for Enterprises

The SAP IaaS service model is the HEC. HEC is a privately controlled cloud solution that utilizes either an SAP Cloud services data center or a Hyperscaler data center in secure data centers. It shows how ERP will function in the future while attaining levels of visibility, agility, and TCO that were previously regarded as impractical.

One can conduct the SAP Cloud services-based operations in its hosted environment while having access to all the advantages of shifting their systems to the cloud due to its IaaS service.

With HEC, the software environment will be similar to standard code. This significantly reduces the amount of time, money, and resources required to access the software. HEC also provides the flexibility to innovate while making it simple to change or scale the operational model.

Benefits of SAP Cloud Services

  • Synchronization of existing solutions and hybrid system landscapes seamlessly
  • Instant deployment of services and applications with predefined configurations
  • Simple native business application development
  • Comprehensive and integrated lifecycle management of all component
