So where SAP should be hosted?

 

Method of hosting What is it for? Benefits offered by Telia Why Telia?
Hosting in Telia data centre/ Private Cloud If you are already using an older generation SAP system, and transferring all processes to the next generation SAP is not yet possible due to complex configurations overgrown with “exceptions”, then moving servers to a Telia data center will ensure a safe and smooth operation. New SAP HANA solutions can be easily implemented with the Private Cloud service.
  • TIER III
  • Certified SAP partner
  • Monitoring at all levels
  • Configuration Management Database (CMDB)
  • DR and HA between two geographically distant data centers (DC)
  • Backups
  • DC location – Lithuania
  • DC and access network – from a single source.
Our data centers for hosting SAP systems meet TIER III standards and have been thoroughly inspected by SAP auditors. They gave the highest score for our monitoring, CMDB, physical security, network security, DR and other areas ensuring data security. Moving the existing SAP servers to our DC is the easiest way to ensure the physical security of your SAP system and to implement reliable DR policies. You will always know where your servers are hosted and, if necessary, will be able to access DC when needed. More on Telia data centres.
„Enterprise Cloud“ If you are starting with a small-scale SAP, but are planning a rapid expansion (or, vice versa, have a SAP, but plan to reduce the scale of your business), TeliaCloud is the best choice for you. TeliaCloud is often combined with Private Cloud solutions (moving application-level servers to cloud).
  • Forecasted monthly expenses
  • SAP certified environment
  • 24x7 manufacturer support
  • SAP system resources depending on need
  • 3X faster installation
  • Integrated security management
Speed and flexibility are the most important IT infrastructure parameters today. They allow maintaining the best value for money by adapting to changing market conditions. Moreover, with a reduction of the overall support infrastructure, SAP maintenance costs decline significantly. Launching the entire SAP infrastructure in the Cloud environment may be up to 3 times faster than in a dedicated infrastructure. Certified environment prepared for use with top-level manufacturer's (Red Hat) support for hosting applications intended for Enterprise business. Don’t worry about any technical requirements for launching your SAP environment. We will take care of all this, and you will not have to worry about any compatibility issues. Using this environment, you will receive 24x7 support from Telia Lietuva and the manufacturer Red Hat for SAP applications. Automated monitoring of service SLA and proactive response to any noticed disruptions allows us ensuring that businesses can operate without any downtime. You will no longer have to plan SAP system capacity and quality parameters - you will get all this as needed. Get comprehensive infrastructure security from Telia Lietuva, a company, which not only assigns separate teams of specialists to ensure security, but also is constantly training, bringing a number of security challenges under control every day.
„Public Cloud“ („Microsoft Azure“) With year 2027 approaching, when SAP will discontinue support for old versions, upgrading is necessary. Migrating to the cloud is one of the most optimal solutions. As there is no Public Cloud data center in Lithuania, we recommend using Azure for SAP system development, operations and testing due to a smoother data transfer and lower monthly costs.

  • employee training
  • preparation of operational SAP system activities for continuous monitoring.

What is SAP S/4 HANA?

It is a new suite of SAP business applications designed to help you to develop your business even more efficiently in the digital world. Faster business processes will not only improve the level of customer service, but also reduce operating costs. Moreover, your business will receive analytical information in real time; the insights generated on the basis of such information will leave your competitors way behind.

If you have already chosen SAP S / 4HANA, Telia data centers are ready to host SAP HANA data repositories, and a team of specialists with many years of experience in SAP HANA migration and deployment projects is looking forward to contributing to your success story.

The SAP S / 4HANA suite consists of an advanced database operating on the basis of the in-memory principle, which is managed using the modern SAP Fiori user interface. Moreover, the SAP S / 4HANA architecture is simpler, which allows cutting down administrative costs. On the other hand, the maintenance of this business management system of a new version requires knowledge and special hardware.

 

Extensive experience

  • We performed the first large-scale migration to the SAP HANA in the Baltic States (in 2015)
  • We are the only ones in the Baltic States to have the SAP HANA Operations certificate. Its scope of certification is equivalent to ISO certification.

 

Which method of migration should you choose:

Our experienced experts are ready to help you to make decisions and to implement them. We have time-tested templates and tools, so your move to SAP S / 4HANA will be fast and safe.

Once you are ready to migrate to SAP S / 4HANA, you will have to choose from the following:

  • A completely new deployment, including a detailed analysis stage
  • Installation keeping the existing processes
  • Intermediate model.

You will also have to decide if you will need help of a partner in both planning and implementing the migration.
