Like many other IT professionals, you may be planning to attend SAPPHIRE NOW in May (or wishing that you could) with a list of questions about SAP. Here are the ten most common – and most critical – challenges we hear about when it comes to running an SAP environment:

  1. I want to change the economics of my SAP application support to do more with less, using a utility-based model. Is that possible?
  2. I lack internal support capabilities for new SAP deployments. Where can I get the expertise I need?
  3. I need to dramatically simplify system and storage capacity expansion as my business requirements evolve. What do I need to do to make that happen?
  4. I have to have geographic resiliency to provide disaster protection for my SAP application. Can I get recovery capabilities with tight RTOs and RPOs?
  5. I need an SAP cloud that can interoperate with other clouds and discrete systems to provide a complete IT solution our multi-faceted application environment. Where can I find that?
  6. I currently have SAP on an aging infrastructure. I need to make a change to ensure business agility – what do I do?
  7. I have dynamic ERP needs due to fast growth, highly-diverse business units, and new acquisitions. How do I guarantee that my SAP platform can keep up?
  8. I need process consistency and compliance in my SAP systems operations. How do I guarantee that to the standards we require?
  9. I have an immediate need for an SAP cloud, but it has to include an upgrade path to virtualized HANA. Does such a cloud platform exist?
  10. I need an SAP cloud that is engineered and operated for high availability, with both infrastructureand application-level SLAs. Who can I trust to deliver that for me?
