The SAP Cloud Platform connects business processes and data. It provides applications the ability to run on the go, while providing simplified access to data through a web browser.
The applications can be easily deployed in the cloud environment, and users only need a web browser and a web server. For organizations looking for an IT department dedicated to the development and implementation of software solutions in the cloud, SAP Cloud can be a very cost effective choice.
The benefits of using this solution are manifold. By using SAP Cloud, companies can streamline their processes by consolidating repetitive tasks such as inventory control, real-time analytics, order tracking, customer support and asset management into one consolidated platform. Another benefit is that this solution is flexible enough to cater to the needs of various industries such as finance, human resources, supply chain management, e-commerce, manufacturing, distribution, project accounting etc.
In recent years, SAP has been investing heavily in its Analytics Cloud Solutions. With these solutions, SAP has made it easy for users to analyze data obtained through on-premise applications, regardless of the provider of the application. This helps them in decision making and enables better insights into the performance of the company.
SAP is now also working hard on its Data Center initiative, which aims at providing a set of tailored solutions to ensure security and scalability for data centers, servers, backup and storage. SAP is one of the largest names in technology today and its decision to open source its analytics cloud solutions is a brave step towards fulfilling its goal to deliver the most secure and dynamic information management system available.
