Are you about to make the move to SAP HANA or S/4HANA?
One-stop shopping offerings —hardware, services, consulting, and managed cloud services all from one vendor —can greatly reduce complexity, cost, and disruption during an SAP modernization initiative.
An SAP HANA deployment can be a demanding, complex and time-consuming project.
In a recent IDC white paper, “For SAP Database and Cloud Migration, Don't Go It Alone”, based on what IDC has seen SAP modernization, SAP database adoption, and SAP cloud migration together pose a challenge with too many variables for most businesses. IDC sees this complexity as, “why very few businesses go it alone with such an initiative and typically collaborate with a range of parties”. Nevertheless, even the wealth of support options available to businesses making the move to SAP HANA or S/4HANA not all succeed. From IDC’s “Special Report – Infrastructure Adoption Trends for SAP and SAP HANA”, while the migration to SAP HANA is well under way, two-thirds of businesses have yet to reach the proof-of-concept stage and fewer businesses are in production.
Seeing these unsettling trends, Hitachi Vantara wanted to sponsor IDC on their “For SAP Database and Cloud Migration, Don't Go It Alone”, white paper to outline best practices and suggestions that can make SAP migrations successful. One important conclusion from IDC’s report is, “one-stop shopping offerings —hardware, services, consulting, and managed cloud services all from one vendor —can greatly reduce complexity, cost, and disruption during an SAP modernization initiative.”

IDC highlighted that, “Hitachi's value proposition is loud and clear — extremely performant and flexible infrastructure solutions combined with deep consulting and services expertise plus a full-stack SAP HANA support service on premises and in a fully managed cloud.” IDC felt with Hitachi Vantara’s depth of SAP experience really helped deliver what SAP customers really need to be successful.

If you about to make the move to SAP HANA or S/4HANA, while there can be an overwhelming number of organizations offering various SAP migration options, it is good to look around and pick one that can deliver everything needed to digitally transform, quickly and effectively. From IDC’s best practices, they urge businesses to investigate options, “especially
one-stop shopping offerings”. After investigating the SAP landscape modernization, IDC concludes that SAP customers should not go alone and suggest looking at the comprehensive offering that Hitachi Vantara provides.
