HP Enables Cloud –Based Delivery of SAP Applications

HP Enterprise Services will provide cloud-based delivery of SAP applications under an agreement between HP and SAP AG.

HP is an SAP-certified global provider of cloud services, application management services and hosting services, providing high-quality standards for cloud-based delivery of SAP applications.

The alliance between HP and SAP AG will enable enterprises to deploy applications in a scalable and affordable manner.

Delivered via HP Enterprise Services’ commercial data centers around the globe, this application is said to enhance the productivity of enterprise sales, marketing and service professionals.

Because HP bundles the required infrastructure, platform and application services in an as-a-service model, clients can conveniently pay on a per-seat basis for what they need to run the applications and processes.

Organizations can benefit from easier and faster deployments by accessing SAP CRM and subsequent applications in the cloud.

SAP is committed to providing customers flexibility in software deployment options and innovations in cloud computing,” said Kevin Ichhpurani, senior vice president, Ecosystem and Channels, SAP. “Through expanded cloud delivery options via HP, we can provide global users with secure, reliable access to essential business applications while helping companies contain hardware and management costs.
