(Gawkwire) – Secure-24 LLC, an SAP-certified provider of cloud and hosting services, announced today that it will be partnering with Sparta Consulting, an SAP® services partner, to provide a Rapid Test Drive program for businesses interested in deploying the SAP HANA® platform.
This program accelerates the proof-of-concept process for companies considering implementing SAP HANA through hosted services provided by Secure-24. Organizations can experience the speed and performance with their own company data in this infrastructure-as-a-service solution. The program is targeted at significantly reducing upfront investment costs for organizations, while delivering an accurate experience of the business value in utilizing SAP HANA.
Secure-24 and Sparta Consulting will be working with internal IT teams to understand the scope of business goals and challenges, and provide a customized solution leveraging the capabilities of SAP HANA. Secure-24’s team will extract the necessary data from existing systems running solutions from SAP and other vendors and set up a proof-of-concept on a Test Drive appliance running SAP HANA.
“Many businesses are analyzing the value of investing in SAP HANA,” said Tom Hardy, vice president, SAP Sales, Secure-24. “This Test Drive Program is a great way to experience the performance without the upfront investment, and see first-hand the ROI these appliances deliver. A hosted solution also relieves internal teams from focusing on migration, management and maintenance issues.”
Secure-24 will exhibit in booth 2419 at the SAPPHIRE® NOW conference and the ASUG Annual Conference, being held May 14-16, co-located in the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando. Secure-24’s senior executives, regional managers and technical management team will be available to meet with visitors and demonstrate the company’s single-source support for the entire lifecycle of SAP solutions. Interested parties can also pick up brochures and white papers regarding this new Test Drive Program for SAP HANA.
Hercules Bester, solution architect, Secure-24 will participate in multiple in-booth speaking sessions being held in EMC’s booth 1807 at SAPPHIRE NOW, titled: SAP Enterprise Architecture – Move from Physical to Virtual and Save Money. These sessions will include detailed examples of how one Secure-24 customer moved to Cisco virtual servers on EMC hardware and reduced costs.
