SAP users face many challenges. They must respond more rapidly and flexibly to changes in volatile, globalized business environments, and they must boost competitiveness and exploit emerging opportunities - all while trying to contain costs.
Cloud computing technologies can play a pivotal role in meeting these challenges. Clouds offer the potential to reduce IT cycle times, more effectively exploit virtualization technologies and increase operational efficiencies. But adoption rates among SAP users have been conservative.
This paper outlines one option that includes industry-leading capabilities at the infrastructure management level. Read this now to learn how this system is better integrated, supports a broader range of processors, operating systems and hypervisors and offers more effective system management capabilities. Furthermore, discover how it offers the potential to transform the server, storage and network infrastructures that support SAP enterprise environments and allows organizations to extend common management services to non-SAP applications.
