With SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud, we are addressing a fundamental customer need that we have seen since we first launched HANA. Customers want more and more options in how they take advantage of the value SAP HANA brings. With the SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud, we are delivering HANA at scale with instant value and no compromise. We are simplifying customers’ experience and expanding their choice in how they want to adopt SAP HANA, now bringing it to a massive scale for enterprise mission critical applications—and we are doing this without disruption through the cloud.
We are thrilled to be the first SAP ERP and SAP NetWeaver BW powered by SAP HANA pilot customer running live on SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud. As part of our aggressive global growth strategy, it was paramount that we have the ability to deploy mission-critical SAP applications powered by SAP HANA as quickly as possible via the cloud without any compromise. I had the vision of running SAP as fast as Excel and today I am happy to share with you that we were able to complete the app migration and cloud on-boarding in just two months. I have personally been able to experience the unbelievable performance of SAP HANA for my cost center reporting. Our business community is looking forward to continuous innovation and transformation with SAP.
