Capgemini’s New Industrialized Migration Solution For SAP NetWeaver® BW on SAP HANA® Helps Accelerate Organizations’ Ability To Gain Competitive Edge with SAP HANA

25 Jun 2013

The new IMS solution is designed to leverage SAP’s methodology for rapid-deployment solutions to help execute the migration in a fixed timeframe of a matter of weeks in most cases. It also combines Capgemini’s comprehensive migration methodology and its highly trained onshore and Rightshore® resources on SAP HANA, which is expected to provide an efficient and cost-effective migration option. In a phased approach, it is planned for a migration assessment to first detail the system and project requirements and migration strategy followed by pre-migration preparation activities, then execution of the migration leveraging SAP’s rapid-deployment methods, operational-readiness testing, and, finally, post-migration optimization. Greater efficiency in migrating SAP NetWeaver BW on RDBMSs to SAP NetWeaver on SAP HANA is expected to allow organizations to more quickly realize the power behind in-memory computing, helping to allow quicker business decisions and more timely actionable intelligence.

IMS joins an ever-growing set of solutions offered by Capgemini, in support of SAP software, supported by its more than 13,000 practitioners who collaborate with clients in all industries and regions across the complete lifecycle of SAP solutions: licensing, implementation, hosting, and application management, with a focus on delivering value.

 “At last month’s SAPPHIRE® NOW conference, attendees voiced to Capgemini tremendous excitement for the solution, as they requested cost-effective tools and extensive experience to help them chart their course forward with SAP HANA,” said Lanny Cohen, chief executive officer, Capgemini US LLC “Capgemini is well positioned with IMS, with which we aim to help our valued clients realize the full business potential of SAP HANA.”

“Migrating our customers’ existing implementations of SAP NetWeaver BW on standard RDBMSs to SAP NetWeaver BW running on SAP HANA is an important part of SAP’s data warehousing strategy,” said Vijay Vijayasankar, global vice president, Technology and Innovation Platform, SAP. “We expect the migration will provide customers with access to modern analytic capabilities in a non-disruptive manner. We commend Capgemini on its IMS solution, through which we anticipate our joint customers can take advantage of these migration capabilities its intended technical and business benefits.”

Capgemini’s Industrialized Migration Solution for SAP NetWeaver BW running on SAP HANA is expected to be available soon in additional regions worldwide.
