Newsbyte: SAP HANA® Cloud Portal Evaluated By Gartner

WALLDORF, Germany, March 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SAP NEWSBYTE -- SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) today announced that SAP HANA® Cloud Portal, formerly called the SAP NetWeaver® Cloud portal, was recently evaluated by Gartner Inc. The cloud- and SAP HANA® platform-based portal solution was built from the outset for use on mobile devices and allows developers to quickly build impactful, highly scalable applications that leverage embedded analytics and the massive speed and scale of SAP HANA.


The Gartner report, " SAP NetWeaver Cloud Portal Is a Front End for SAP Innovation," looks at how portal strategy leaders can leverage the on-demand portal to help ensure a unified strategy and address the demands generated from cloud, mobile and information trends.

"We believe this report underscores our dedication to providing multifaceted solutions to customers that are facing new challenges," said Amit Sinha, head of Marketing, Database & Technology Innovation, SAP. "With our platform-as-a-service offering, we can now quickly add new capabilities and features, to help companies drive innovation and engage with employees, partners and customers, introducing support as demand arises with the secure, scalable robust SAP HANA Cloud Portal."

SAP HANA Cloud Portal is a cloud-based solution for easy site creation and consumption with a superior user experience. It is designed for mobile consumption using HTML5 with gesture support and dynamic adaption to a range of devices, allowing customers to connect applications, reports and unstructured content from various SAP and non-SAP sources. Three key value propositions include:
  • Innovation: For line of business (LOB), SAP HANA Cloud Portal enables business users to quickly create attractive external or internal sites, built with social capabilities, unstructured content and SAP® applications, with minimal IT involvement.
  • Cost leadership and value: For IT, SAP HANA Cloud Portal helps customers meet LOB ad-hoc site-creation needs with minimal setup, security and total cost of ownership (TCO) concerns, while leveraging the existing investment in the SAP NetWeaver® Portal component.
  • Enrichment: For the value chain, SAP HANA Cloud Portal enables users to collaborate around business processes in a secure, scalable and transparent manner.

"Organizations seem to be on a perpetual quest for portal offerings that can serve three broad constituencies: IT organizations, business leaders and end users," Gartner Research Director Jim Murphy wrote in the report. "The perfect portal offering would serve at once as a development and delivery platform for IT; as a means to engage employees, customers and partners for business influencers; and as a flexible environment for knowledge management and collaboration for end users. While most early portal products were tools for IT, organizations are under increasing pressure to provide more autonomy — albeit under the continued aegis of corporate security and governance — to business and end users." 

SAP was positioned by Gartner in the leaders quadrant of the September 2012 Magic Quadrant for Horizontal Portals report. For more information, visit the SAP Newsroom. Follow SAP on Twitter at @sapnews.
