A next-gen platform for the next generation of SAP

An integrated approach to deliver a comprehensive SAP HANA solution.

SAP HANA allows enterprises across industries to process their transactions, make the data instantly available, and run analytic processing in real-time through a single in-memory system—helping them improve business performance, expedite service delivery, and operate efficiently.

Migration to this technology comes with challenges in regard to expensive infrastructure requirements, specialist deployment and management skills, ensuring 24/7 availability of hosting infrastructure, as well as the need for an integrated IT environment.

This is where Tata Communications, a digital ecosystem enabler, comes in. It provides scalable, cost effective and high-performance infrastructure for business of all sizes and is optimised to run SAP HANA at its best. While SAP application can be hosted on IZO™ Private Cloud, to host the HANA DB you can choose a variety of hosting configurations such as flexible and quickly deployable SAP HANA Grid.

In recent times, the company’s integrated approach to deliver a comprehensive SAP HANA solution has helped two major companies deliver enhanced cost-efficiencies.  

Amongst these companies is a large coal mining and refining entity in India, which was grappling with supply chain and business process inefficiencies along with a broken employee management system. These issues led to revenue leakages, high operational costs, and a laggard business process across all its subsidiaries.

The coal mining entity wanted to have a next-generation hosting environment where they could upgrade to the latest version of SAP—SAP HANA. In its case, the upgrade required specific professional migration skills, adjusted business processes, specific hardware configurations, analytical capabilities, and more.

Fortunately, Tata Communications’ IZO™ Private Cloud for SAP HANA provided a scalable, cost-effective and high-performance infrastructure optimised to run SAP HANA at its full potential. This, along with end-to-end managed services, which included planning, design consultation, migration, monitoring, and management with options for disaster recovery and backup, ensured the company delivered enhanced cost-efficiencies and freedom from migration complexities.

The result ensured a highly agile business operation and business continuity without any disruption. All this in just 20 days.

Meanwhile, Tata Communications also provided its services to a leading consumer product company, which outsources its computing estate to a third party. In this case, agility was lacking and resilience needed improvement as applications experienced extended local backup times.

The company designed architecture with virtual and physical servers. Its SAP HANA physical services are hosted in the Mumbai IDC, whilst over 120 applications run on its IZO™ Private Cloud.

This has resulted in an increased speed of 25%, whilst routinely managing a billion dollars’ worth of transactions.

Tata Communications’ assistance has been recognised by the Asian Technology Excellence Awards 2022, as the company brought home the India Technology Excellence Award for Cloud Services award.

The prestigious awards programme aims to recognise exceptional companies that are riding the digital disruption wave and leading the technological revolution and digital transformation journeys in their respective industries.
