The speed of change in how today’s business is conducted can’t be ignored. Only those who continue to change will stay ahead. A digital transformation strategy can provide innovative ways for improving IT delivery and the ways technology accelerates company success. The race to transform is on in every industry.
Enabling Big Data and Digital Experiences with SAP S/4 HANA
To win against the competition, organizations must look at transformation that makes the most out of their business-critical assets. For many enterprises, one of the most critical assets is their SAP implementation. How you can best leverage and integrate your SAP systems is a strategic question to consider in your digital transformation plan.

We have end-to-end expertise in SAP HANA. That expertise is global, which is important because most of the enterprises with big investments in SAP HANA are global in scope. In fact, Gery Messer, Managing Director, CenturyLink Asia Pacific recently authored a blog about digital transformation. He spoke to the advantages of SAP HANA, how to develop a winning SAP strategy and how applying advanced analytics to data fuels company growth in a variety of ways.
Gery’s recommendations are just as applicable for organizations in any region so I will repeat them here:
Tap into data as a fuel
By maximizing SAP solutions, data becomes a true accelerant for digital transformation. Organizations will be able to consolidate large pools of data from various business-critical functions and non-SAP data to generate analytical insights. SAP HANA facilitates the process by providing the cornerstone for all data needs. This database engine helps organizations locate, identify, curate, and enhance data from a variety of places, bridging the gap between IT and lines of businesses.
Power customer experience with smarter decision-making
With a solid data architecture in place, organizations can tap into the real-time analytics capabilities of SAP platform to gain faster Time to Insight (TTI) that will yield strategic advantages crucial in today’s digital world. Organizations can uncover service gaps to make process improvements. In addition, they can also find business opportunities by incorporating predictive results into more applications and business processes. By making smarter and more effective decisions, organizations will be able to reorient themselves to better satisfy the needs of their customers.
Ignite business growth with the power of the cloud
Organizations can optimize SAP workloads in the most appropriate hybrid hosting environments, including private and public cloud. Rapid deployment infrastructure solutions certified for SAP environments can be implemented within weeks. Organizations can enter new markets or roll out new services at lightning speed by reducing the implementation time needed to onboard and utilize the applications. Furthermore, technologies such as application-centric infrastructure and policy-driven governance allow organizations to rapidly deploy environments while reducing risk of error and TCO.
When it comes to digital transformation, optimizing your business-critical SAP environment can provide you a powerful advantage against your competition. Selecting the right SAP-certified service provider to help you along that journey is essential when working with resources as business-critical as your SAP environment.
