Becoming a data-driven organisation is all about getting real-time insights from your data, using proven methodologies and business intelligence/analytics tools. That way, you can deliver the right information to the right people at the right time. As a data-driven SAP user, you’ll be able to find and correlate data from various repositories located across your enterprise, but how can you accomplish these outcomes and optimise your data storage capabilities and investments?

HPE is continuously looking at smarter ways of storing data and improving storage technology, and so increasing the ROI for HPE storage devices. By combining HPE storage technology and the EPI-USE Labs SAP-certified Data Sync Manager™ technology, our SAP clients will benefit from a significant reduction in the total SAP footprint. 

Reducing the size of your test system brings down the cost of the value exploration exercise. A smaller HANA DB footprint means more cost-savings on the project (we typically reduce non-production systems by over 75%). This has a significant influence on your total landscape ROI.

As well as improving your data storage ROI, you’ll be able to refresh your SAP clients more easily and more efficiently. This is key for those who are planning to move to SAP S/4HANA.
