October 2, 2012 - 1 Comment

If you have deployed a SAP solutions, chances are that you have also Cisco network solutions in your company. But do you realize that you can get much more out of the presence of the two vendors in your company? And if you run also solutions either from EMC and NetApp you are now literally seating on a golden opportunity. October 9th webcast is your chance to know more.

Cisco and SAP are very natural partners – Both companies are very interested in providing what business customers are increasingly eager to get out of an intelligent infrastructure ready for cloud, big data , and data analytics : Improve personal productivity, increase process visibility, expand customer insight, manage risks and provide security, with the promise of achieving unprecedented level of  business agility,  financial efficiency and IT simplification.

Over the past years , SAP introduced a new concept with SAP HANA, “a game changer in Memory platform, allowing customers to run the business differently thanks to an easy , near real-time access to a vast amount of data”  to quote  Ryan Veerubhotla, SAP AG , VP Ecosystem and channels – If you  haven’t already seen this educative , easy to understand video, check out . A great way to  see how data in motion become data in action!

Truth is ..for a solution such a SAP HANA to be very successful , it requires an outstanding infrastructure – And that’s where the Cisco Unified Data Center plays a central role –

Whether we talk about Unified Computing Systems, Unified Fabric or Unified management including Intelligent Automation, the Data Center portfolio of solutions that Cisco can deploy for a SAP user makes a tremendous difference in terms of ease of deployment, ease of management , cost reduction and containment and of course performances. (a quick reminder that Cisco UCS broke in less than 3 years  + 70 world-record benchmarks including this week a TPC-C benchmark)

Initially a long standing network partner (Unified Fabric), Cisco brought on the table another long standing relationship with the acquisition of intelligent automation (part of Unified Management) developed in close partnership with SAP – The fruitition of this intense collaboration has be announced recently with Cisco Intelligent Automation now on SAP price list , and the development of SAP Hana Bridge  (SAP IT Process Automation by Cisco – Dialog with SAP Stephen Spears and Cisco Flint Brenton)

The Cisco SAP partnership moved definitely to a next level with the huge success of Unified Computing Systems, which is really providing a virtualized computing environment where SAP HANA can be deployed at best , fulfilling all the promises of this innovative technology and concept .(Can SAP HANA on the Cisco UCS server  platform  think faster than you do ? Almost!!)

Add on this recipe for success, the unique features developed by Cisco EMC alliance on one hand, and by Cisco NetApp collaboration on the other hand , and you end up with the most powerful business environments that a company can dream of .
