Protera Technologies, (Protera), a global leader in business critical managed enterprise cloud and hosting services, announced it has become an SAP certified provider of operations for the SAP HANA® platform. The certification confirms the ability of Protera to deliver high-quality IT operations services for customers whose applications are running on the SAP HANA platform. The certification announced today comes in addition to Protera’s existing certifications as an SAP-certified provider of hosting and cloud services, mobile operations services, and application management services. The new certification is specifically for operating SAP HANA, and applications running on SAP HANA, on behalf of customers. SAP HANA is the innovative in-memory computing platform that converges database and application platform capabilities to transform transactional, analytical, textual, predictive and spatial data storage and processing so companies can run their businesses using big data in real time.
Carl Lafoe, Global Vice President of Protera, conveyed, “Protera is extremely committed to SAP. This most recent certification demonstrates this ongoing commitment to ensure our clients know that Protera possesses the expertise to help ensure their SAP solutions are always available and performing well.”
As an SAP-certified provider of operations services for SAP HANA, Protera can perform a range of IT services related to SAP HANA and to applications running on SAP HANA, from initial proofof-concepts to rapid deployments for customers of their SAP HANA-based solutions as well as hosting and cloud services for applications on SAP HANA. Companies that rely on Protera for hosting or cloud services for their applications on SAP HANA can benefit from reduced operational expenses and the ability to focus on the business value of their solutions rather than on infrastructure. As an expert cloud and hosting services provider, Protera manages the details of the technical infrastructure, backup and disaster recovery.
Binoy James, VP of AppCare Delivery at Protera, conveyed, “This new SAP certification is validation of our great team of skilled resources here at Protera.” Besides using the Protera environment for customers’ applications running on SAP HANA, Protera can deliver any SAP® application in the cloud. Companies can outsource all their SAP applications to Protera– including SAP Business Suite software and the SAP ERP, SAP Customer Relationship Management (SAP CRM), SAP Supply Chain Management (SAP SCM), SAP Business Planning and Consolidation and SAP Business Warehouse (SAP BW) applications – as well as SAP HANA.
