Why you should go for SAP HANA Cloud Platform?


December 1, 2016

Everyone is talking about SAP HANA Cloud Platform. System Integrators are helping customers to migrate from their on premise systems to a more robust and flexible cloud based system in HANA Cloud Platform.

However, as a customer one question that keeps intriguing you and giving you sleepless nights is, “Why should I go for cloud? Why HANA Cloud Platform?”

Here are key reasons why you should go for HANA Cloud Platform by SAP



Just think of your data like your money. Just because you keep money at home (under your bed) does not mean your money will multiply. You need to invest and park your money in secured places (investment instruments) to ensure your money is safe.

Similarly, if you want to ensure your data is in safe hands, park it on the technology instrument SAP HANA Cloud Platform.

SAP HANA Cloud Platform’s closely integrated security services include authentication, single sign-on, on-premises integration and self-services such as registration and password reset for employees, customers, partners and consumers.

Capex -> Opex

Typically for a mid sized company this is a very crucial factor. They usually tend to hire a connector or a mediator, which involves a cost. He/she will find it very difficult to accept the fact that using a cloud solution can actually help a customer turn their Capital Expediture into Operating Expenditure. Here is a simple explanation on how it works.

Costs for running a data center usually has to be split in complicated calculations to the outcome of the production. Such it is hard to determine the binding between production and its cost. Same applies to software cost, by the way. By using SaaS you can associate the cost much more precise to specific actions and as you are paying for SaaS only as long as you are using it (and no upfront license cost) turn Capex into Opex.


When it comes to maintenance, there is hardly any effort needed and it’s a cakewalk for any developer. There is no physical installation so there is no troubleshooting and no trouble on who sold the software and things like that. Its simple, it runs on your site and it runs on everybody’s site.
