For people who don’t work at SAP, it sometimes seems like we spend a lot of time writing about SAP. It’s not just because we like our alliance partner; it’s because we know your move to SAP S/4HANA will bring your organization huge benefits, and if you make SUSE a part of your move, we can help you take a big step toward achieving these benefits and your digital transformation.
Real Companies, Real Results
With SAP S/4HANA, digital transformation isn’t just a buzzword. By building on the in-memory database technology of SAP HANA, you can create an infrastructure that responds faster and reacts with more agility to changing markets. SAP S/4HANA gives you a digital core to power the rest of your transformation.
We know some of the stories of business transformation that are out there seem too great to believe, but at SUSE we see real companies use this very real technology to dramatically improve their business. Indian manufacturer Vectus Industries worked with us to implement SAP S/4HANA and improved overall operating efficiency by 60 percent.
Employees at Boydak Holdings, a diversified business out of Turkey, had to wait 10 minutes every time they ran a report. After implementing SAP HANA, reports took just five seconds. One wonders if there’s a lot less YouTube watched there now.
Hillarys, the leading British manufacturer of custom window treatments, upgraded to SAP S/4HANA and enhanced customer experiences with reduced call times and better first-call resolution. Plus the company’s overnight data upload now takes half as long.
We’re with You
We believe we’re the best partner you could find for a transition to SAP S/4HANA, and we hope you’ve read some of our other blog posts and have come to think so too.
By now you’ve decided whether your SAP S/4HANA implementation will be on-premise or in the cloud. No matter which model you’ve decided on, SUSE is the smart choice for supporting you. SUSE® Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications is the premier operating system for SAP environments. It’s what SAP itself uses for development, and it’s what 95 percent of SAP HANA implementations run on.
We also have close partnerships with major cloud providers Amazon Web Services, Google Compute Engine, IBM Cloud and Microsoft Azure to ensure that you have easy access to SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications on their clouds. And where specialty SAP HANA–focused options are available—such as with Azure large instances and Amazon X1 instances—we’ve worked with providers to ensure that you can leverage the value of SUSE engineering.
We’ve collaborated with SAP at its SAP LinuxLab since 1999 to ensure that our products work together to bring you the greatest possible value. That’s why SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications comes with our Installation Wizard for SAP applications, a high-availability extension certified for SAP NetWeaver and more features to enhance your business.
You really can bring SAP S/4HANA and true digital transformation to your business. An investment today in SUSE and SAP S/4HANA will bring innovation and growth for years to come. Let’s get started.
