When you need something done right, you go to the experts. For expertise in the delivery and support of SAP HANA look no further than AT&T, who was recently SAP HANA Operations Certified. As an early SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud partner, AT&T has already been helping customers take advantage of the real business opportunities SAP HANA provides. The certification is further confirmation of proficiency in the area of SAP HANA delivery and support.

HANA is an in-memory database platform that processes large amounts of data for insight and real-time decision making. But for all the promise HANA holds for SAP customers, it is also hardware-intensive and a new platform for customers to develop skills in. Therefore, companies may find it more cost-effective for a managed service provider to host it rather than purchasing and installing the product in their own data center. As a leader in managed hosting, as well as an SAP Global Partner certified in hosting and cloud services, and now SAP HANA Operations Services, AT&T can provide the expertise to help businesses create a fully-managed SAP HANA solution.

Maximize SAP value and reduce total cost of ownership

IT outsourcing operations services are increasingly important to SAP customers to ensure high-quality, sustainable, and cost-effective operations of their SAP solutions and SAP environments. To support this customer need, trusted SAP-certified partners provide high-quality managed services and support. SAP certification is only granted after skills have been honed through rigorous study or direct experience and abilities have been demonstrated by passing demanding, process-oriented exams. To ensure ongoing high standards for the management of SAP solutions, certified providers undergo a thorough assessment of their delivery and support capabilities every two years by SAP’s outsourcing partner certification audit group.

As certified and experienced managers of customers’ SAP applications, AT&T is well qualified to successfully help deliver and manage HANA and other solutions they need in their businesses.
