Wharfedale Technologies Inc. (WFT Cloud), a leading SAP Infrastructure and SAP Cloud consulting firm, has made significant gains within the cloud computing domain by focusing on cost savings and faster ROI when customers decide to migrate their existing SAP Applications to the Cloud.
SAP HANA is an in-memory database solution that provides the infrastructure and foundation for multiple business applications, such as analytics and business intelligence. It accelerates core business processes and reports against transactional and analytical information from across the enterprise in near-real time.
WFT SAP HANA Assessment service will be delivered as a combination of on-site and off-site delivery models. Data collection, interviews with key stakeholders in the organization, and discussion of architecture and capabilities of HANA will be conducted on-site. Analysis of data and recommendations for next steps will be performed off-site. The right adoption strategy for this new technology into an existing environment is critical to realize the benefits.
The multi-day workshop covers both business and technical aspects related to the solution. Specific to business, collaborative discussions of as-is and to-be states for information management will be discussed along with the business drivers and roadmap. From a technical perspective, the topics covered during the workshop include introduction, architecture, sizing, infrastructure requirements, migration strategy, backup recovery, high availability, data loads, post migration testing, current BW data model readiness, licensing, SLA’s and deployment model (On-premise or Cloud).
If HANA is deemed to be viable option after the analysis, the next steps include review and analysis of the existing SAP BW system and presentation of the planning steps required for a SAP HANA migration. Evaluation of current data volumes and possibilities for optimization are also explored. WFT Cloud follows BW on HANA certified migration methodology for migrating from BW to HANA..
