Ready to accelerate your deployment and migration to SAP HANA? Get started with Cisco Services.

Businesses are at an inflection point with their SAP deployments. Relying on traditional data centers creates silos for SAP applications, inhibits the speed and flow of data across an organization, and reduces innovation and functionality.

Cisco Services for SAP HANA combine with your investments in Cisco UCS® and HyperFlex technologies to help accelerate your SAP HANA deployments and migrations.

To remain competitive, businesses want to modernize and expand their infrastructure by upgrading from SAP R/3 to S/4 HANA, transition to the cloud, or implement new SAP modules. This transition can help lay the foundation for innovation while maximizing the value of existing SAP environments.

Start your deployment or migration to SAP HANA with Cisco Services. Cisco Services helps SAP teams worldwide design, manage, and maintain some of the most sophisticated, secure, intelligent platforms for SAP infrastructure. Whether you are at the pilot stage or ready to implement your migration, Cisco Services can help you:

      Identify workloads, applications, and storage to migrate

      Verify I/O profile and availability requirements of applications you plan to migrate
