SAP Offers Fast Track To Innovation Via A Flexible Path To The Cloud

WALLDORF, Germany, July 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) is taking the next step to make the recently announced unified cloud portfolio vision a reality for customers, putting them in the driver's seat for their cloud journey. SAP now offers customers and partners a simple, flexible model for extending current on-premise solutions to cloud applications, including offerings from SAP companies Ariba and SuccessFactors.

Based on their existing investments in SAP® software, customers can decide to reallocate elements of their installed on-premise solutions to the respective cloud solutions from SAP, replacing the affected on-premise license and maintenance with a cloud subscription. The transaction assumes an expanded investment with cloud solutions from SAP, given the substantial added value from this new hybrid scenario.

Consume Cloud Innovations at Own PaceSAP removes barriers and enables customers to drive speed-to-value and unlock opportunities to lower total cost of ownership, taking care that existing investments are protected and exploring new options with innovative cloud solutions from SAP at their own pace. The hybrid solution can be fully integrated offering seamless delivery and support as well as full control over the application landscape, including on-premise and cloud applications. With this integrated approach, customers gain the flexibility, choice and efficiencies needed to innovate for growth across their entire business in the cloud.

Unlock Business Value With Flexibility and EaseSAP® Rapid Deployment solutions for the SAP® Cloud portfolio support the new cloud extension opportunity. Hybrid deployment scenarios can be quickly implemented based on packaged content and implementation services in the areas of human resources, procurement, and business collaboration, among others. The cloud extension model helps companies of any size create entirely new experiences for their customers, empower employees at scale, optimize the use of resources and unlock value for their business.

Proven support offerings from SAP, including SAP® MaxAttention™ and SAP® ActiveEmbedded services, are available to support customers in transitioning without disruption, allowing them to build and run SAP solutions like a factory.

"Enterprises can face significant hurdles deploying and integrating cloud solutions into very complex IT ecosystems, so they are looking for pricing and adoption models that offer the flexibility to drive an extension to the cloud at their own pace," said Elaina Stergiades, research manager, IDC. "Adoption models like this from SAP can help customers streamline their investments in on-premise and cloud solutions, making it easier and more cost-effective to take advantage of these new technologies."

SAP believes that every customer has a different approach to adopt the cloud innovations based on unique business requirements. The new cloud extension model is an optional model that flexibly supports many different entry points for a cloud strategy.
