SAP Certifies HP as its Cloud Services Provider

HP Enterprise Services has become an SAP-certified global provider of cloud services in support of SAP solutions.

HP specializes in providing standardized IT solutions and services based on shared resources via the internet. The company enables smooth delivery of SAP applications to clients in a scalable manner via HP Hybrid Delivery Cloud Services.

According to HP, it is among the first partners to achieve this certification, which assures clients using SAP applications through HP’s cloud services.

Clients now know that they can benefit from increased flexibility, which enables business process alignment to meet immediate market demands.

Certification also ensures rapid provisioning, which speeds their ability to implement application and business process changes and a highly reliable architecture and access to the latest cloud services without any infrastructure capital outlay.

Accessing cloud service without heavy expenditure results in much reduced costs and risks for companies.

This certification is no mean feat as those seeking this honour by SAP have to undergo an extensive audit process. During the comprehensive certification program, SAP validates the operational integration of the provider’s cloud capabilities with SAP applications.

The technology providers are reviewed for their technical, physical, management and logical security processes supporting SAP applications.

The race to the cloud is causing many cloud service providers to offer Infrastructure as a Service, but leave service levels and risk management to their resource-strapped clients,” said Kathy Garcia, senior vice president, Applications, HP Enterprise Services. “With this certification, HP can deliver SAP solutions via the cloud with increased flexibility and rapid provisioning, resulting in lower costs and less risk for companies to consume the full benefits of enterprise applications.”

The certification confirms HP’s ability to deliver high-quality cloud services in support of SAP solutions,” said Michael Ressemann, global head, Outsourcing Services and Solution Delivery, SAP. “Through its cloud services and Hybrid Delivery Cloud platform, in support of SAP solutions, HP gives application service providers the ability to meet their business users’ needs quickly and cost-effectively without sacrificing reliability or quality.”
