The Total Economic Impact™ Of Dell EMC Servers For SAP
The Business Case For SAP HANA & S/4HANA Migrations And Management With Dell EMC Servers
To run a digital business that is Intelligent and agile, your enterprise requires an IT landscape capable of connecting the front and back offices. In other words, the ability to engage customers depends on the often-unseen capabilities in the data center. To remain on a path to digital transformation and capitalize on innovations in AI and machine learning (ML), companies are migrating their enterprise resource planning (ERP) and business warehouse (BW) workloads to SAP HANA and SAP S/4HANA. For enterprises running legacy SAP solutions, with an end of service life after 2025, the timetable for migration is rapidly approaching given that the average implementation is several years. IT decision makers (ITDMs) begin this journey by articulating the business case for why they should modernize their IT landscape for SAP and what factors they should consider along the way.
Dell EMC and Intel® commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a market survey and a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study. The market survey captures the drivers, challenges, benefits, and best practices learned by firms familiar with this migration. Forrester surveyed 550 global ITDMs and ERP application owners at enterprises that have either implemented or are in the process of implementing SAP HANA and are at least planning to implement SAP S/4HANA.
