IDC White Paper
Who Can Benefit from SAP HANA Database ans S/4HANA on IBM Power Systems?

“Since late 2015, SAP HANA has also been available on IBM Power Systems with IBM’s innovative IBM Power Systems architecture and processors, and IBM says that to date it has more than 3,000customers running SAP HANA on IBM Power Systems. IDC believes that IBM Power Systems is a strong differentiator for SAP HANA and S/4HANA. IBM Power Systems is designed for very data-intensive workloads such as SAP HANA, with powerful built-in virtualization that is SAP certified aswell as numerous reliability features”

By adopting the SAP S/4HANA platform, Metalloinvest was able to shut down 100 IT systems and slash operating costs. More than 7,000 employees are using the new platform, which has improved efficiency and manageability. More than 2,400 employees use the SAP S/4HANA platform daily to plan and execute more than 34,000 maintenance orders each month.

Businesses with SAP HANA Appliances Due for a Refresh

“Many businesses started their SAP HANA journey as many as six years ago with SAP HANA appliances on commodity architecture. This was the only solution available at the time. Those businesses are now facing a costly scale-out expansion or possibly a complete technology refresh”

Businesses on Commodity Architecture Moving to SAP HANA

“Businesses that are running their datacenter on commodity architecture that have not yet moved to SAP HANA have a choice between appliances on commodity architecture and IBM Power Systems. Even if they have never had IBM Power Systems in the datacenter, bringing the platform in today provides a powerful Linux system with significant processor benefits.”

Businesses with a Traditional Database and SAP Applications onIBM Power Systems

“There are many businesses that run their SAP business applications on IBM Power Systems with a traditional database, such as Oracle or DB2. For them, a move to SAP HANA (BW on SAP HANA, Suite on SAP HANA, SAP BW/4HANA, or SAP S/4HANA) involves their mission-critical processes and data. On the other hand, migrating to SAP HANA on IBM Power Systems will provide businesses with a significant database performance boost, easier administration and processing of vast volumes of business data, and faster user response time for transactional in-memory processing”

Businesses on IBM Power Systems That Currently Do Not Have SAP
“Many of these businesses prefer to remain on IBM Power Systems because they are invested and know IBM Power Systems, which makes migration easier. What’s more, once they have started a discussion to migrate off their traditional relational database management system (RDBMS), they are typically not looking to replace it with another traditional RDBMS. This essentially leaves them with two options: an open source database solution (e.g., EnterpriseDB) or SAP HANA on IBM Power Systems”

Businesses with On-Premises SAP Apps That Want to Expand Off Premises

“SAP expects its customers to move to a cloud or hybrid cloud model. Businesses can extend their environment to IBM Cloud using Power Virtual Servers. IBM Cloud provides a wide varietyof SAP-certified options for running SAP workloads, including IBM Power Systems. SAP infrastructure services are available in 58 IBM Cloud datacenters around the globe”

Here’s how regional firms can simplify the cloud migration process

Most regional companies – across industries – have either already adopted digital transformation strategies or are in the process of embarking on them. And the shift to the cloud is a key component of that process – spending on public cloud services across the Middle East, Africa and Turkey will grow 26.7 per cent this year to top $3.7bn, IDC predicted earlier this year.

However, many organisations find the cloud migration process to be quite daunting, especially considering the increasing regulatory requirements coupled with technology and security concerns. Companies have to decide whether to opt for public, private or on-premises solutions. And then they have to find ways to migrate their traditional IT infrastructure to the cloud.

It is to streamline and simplify that process that global IT firm Comarch offers its multi-cloud management services. The company manages IT for several large enterprises, where multiple cloud platforms interact alongside legacy and traditional IT environments. Some of the advantages of this include:

• The multi-cloud strategy enables users to mix and match services based on their organisational goals and specific needs
• With Comarch handling the ongoing management of the multi-cloud environment, internal IT staff can focus on business initiatives
• Ability to handle legacy applications, next-generation applications and specific workloads
• Various managed services on both cloud and legacy IT platforms
• Aligning the activities of various teams to maintain security and compliance
• Ensuring smooth migrations to the cloud thanks to consultations and guidance
• Single point of contact in any IT-related case

“Comarch multicloud services help you to move your organisation’s infrastructure and applications to the cloud and, as a result, let your IT resources focus on more business related aspects of IT. Our solutions mitigate risk, maximise performance and invoke robust, repeatable processes leading to future business growth,” says Marcin Geroch, Comarch ICT consulting director.

Comarch PowerCloud

One of Comarch’s ready-to-use cloud solutions is the Comarch PowerCloud platform, which allows IBM i and AIX systems users to migrate their on-premise IT infrastructures to the cloud.

The platform, which is based on the company’s proprietary infrastructure, also offers full technical support and delivers a full portfolio of managed services. Comarch PowerCloud  incorporates the latest virtualisation features and facilitates deployment processes for IBM AIX, IBM i, and Linux virtual machines (VMs) running on IBM Power Systems environments. It is available in a pay-as-you-go model, allowing users to cut costs – a study by Comarch found that migrating the traditional IBM Power infrastructure to the cloud may help reduce costs by as much as 30-40 per cent.

The solution is also flexible, meaning users can purchase as much processor power and storage space as required and change the values if their needs evolve. All the data is stored in Comarch’s own data centres, which offers high level of information protection and security compliance.
