Technology giant HP is collaborating with enterprise solutions firm SAP to provide real-time insight to Malaysian companies with HP As-a-Service for SAP HANA.

HP Malaysia country general manager, enterprise services, Datin Lim Bee Wah said companies in Malaysia could benefit from real-time insights and speedier business outcomes with this model without being hampered by capital expenditure or high total cost of ownership as clients would pay a monthly subscription fee for the complete solution.

"Today's market pressures create the need for companies to know in real time what is going on with their enterprise, their clients and even their competitors, so they can stay competitive," said Lim. "When HP and SAP innovate together, we raise the bar on what is possible for our clients by providing real-time insights."

She said the new solution operates in an HP Managed Cloud environment, either as a managed virtual private cloud or a managed private cloud, within a regionalised, enterprise-class HP data center facility. It is powered by the SAP-certified HP AppSystem for SAP HANA. 

Lim said this new service also is enabled by the HP Migration Factory for SAP HANA to provide best-in-class migration. "These migration services ensure HP will plan, migrate, validate, secure and deliver clients' mission-critical data onto the SAP HANA platform."

All migration services are performed under SAP-certified methodology and validated with HP's global SAP certifications to successfully design, build, integrate and run SAP systems globally, she said.

"SAP is laser-focused on our joint clients' business challenges and technology needs, and with HP as our strategic partner we are delivering integrated solutions that enable them to become best-run businesses," said SAP Asia Pacific Japan's senior vice president, ecosystem, and channels, Bronwyn Hastings.

"This new offering is part of SAP's HANA Enterprise Cloud strategy to offer mission-critical end-to-end managed cloud services to its customers, both directly and through its valued partners such as HP. HP As-a-Service Solution for SAP HANA is a great example of the unique value both companies bring to consistently exceed our clients' expectations to accelerate innovation with minimal disruption," said Hastings.

Lim said the HP Services for SAP HANA package also included:
