SAP yesterday announced the expansion of SAP-certified solutions on Amazon Web Services (AWS), including SAP Business One with SAP Hana. This exciting new announcement provides SME customers with the flexibility to rapidly deploy SAP solutions on the scalable, on-demand AWS Cloud without the need for making long-term commitments or incurring costly IT investment on premise.
SMEs can now deploy and run SAP Business One, version for SAP HANA, on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances. This is a pay-as-you go, subscription-based model which will help reduce total cost of ownership for the solution. Existing SAP customers will be able to use their existing software licenses on AWS with no additional SAP license fees required. New customers can license SAP applications to run on AWS from an authorised reseller such as Culex Ltd, who have been specialising in the implementation, support and development of SAP Business One since 2003.
“We have seen a dramatic acceleration of customers running their mission-critical SAP software on the AWS Cloud,” said Peter Mauel, global alliance leader, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “The added ability to now run SAP Business One, version for SAP HANA, on AWS allows these customers to garner the same benefits that our existing common customers already realise. Namely, how the running of key SAP enterprise solutions, in production on the AWS cloud, helps drive business agility and innovation into business and can reduce the total cost of ownership.”
In addition, SAP partners using AWS have access to the developer edition of SAP Business One, version for SAP HANA. This provides an easy way for SAP users to begin development and porting of add-on solutions and other application extensions for the powered by SAP HANA version of SAP Business One.
SAP Business One for SAP HANA, running on AWS combines the flexibility of the cloud with SAP Hana’s powerful in-memory technology and helps companies of all sizes streamline their overall business execution through accessible, easy-to-use, real-time data that provide clear insights. The solution enables SMEs or subsidiaries of large companies to make data-driven decisions at any time and from anywhere, managing critical business processes, such as sales, finance, accounting and inventory.
