Your business runs on SAP, and runs well. Yet, you are sitting on the horns of a dilemma. You know that a move to SAP HANA is inevitable in the future, but you aren’t at the point where you are ready to commit to the effort and costs associated with a migration. Neither, however, can you afford to stand still. HANA is iterating so quickly that the ever-increasing gap will make a future migration exceedingly expensive and inefficient. The dilemma is further complicated by the fact that your SAP hardware platforms are aging, but upgrading now doesn’t make sense in light of a future move to SAP HANA.

You can’t make the move to SAP HANA, but you also can’t stand still and maintain the status quo.

To get out of this dilemma, you need a third option. An option that will mitigate the risk of falling too far behind, and which will allow you to phase in platform efficiencies without wasting short-term investments.

This third option is HANA readiness. Put thoughts of HANA migration aside: that is in the future. Instead, consider what will give you an edge to make that move efficiently and effectively when the time comes … what will make you ready to migrate to SAP HANA.

Establishing a cloud-based SAP infrastructure is a key component of achieving HANA readiness. A cloud-based SAP platform can help manage your evolving business needs, including facilitating intermediate-level migrations for updating traditional SAP systems and simplifying later-stage HANA platform migrations.

Sungard Availability Services (Sungard AS) is perfectly positioned to help you become HANA ready with our SAP-certified cloud-based services for both traditional and HANA-based systems. Visit us at SAPPHIRE NOW at Booth 1035 to talk about HANA readiness – we would be glad to help you out of the SAP HANA dilemma.
