This book offers a comprehensive guide to implementing SAP and HANA on private, public and hybrid clouds. Cloud computing has transformed the way organizations run their IT infrastructures: the shift from legacy monolithic mainframes and UNIX platforms to cloud based infrastructures offering ubiquitous access to critical information, elastic provisioning and drastic cost savings has made cloud an essential part of every organization’s business strategy. Cloud based services have evolved from simple file sharing, email and messaging utilities in the past, to the current situation, where their improved technical capabilities and SLAs make running mission-critical applications such as SAP possible. However, IT professionals must take due care when deploying SAP in a public, private or hybrid cloud environment. As a foundation for core business operations, SAP cloud deployments must satisfy stringent requirements concerning their performance, scale and security, while delivering measurable improvements in IT efficiency and cost savings. The 2nd edition of “SAP on the Cloud” continues the work of its successful predecessor released in 2013, providing updated guidance for deploying SAP in public, private and hybrid clouds. To do so, it discusses the technical requirements and considerations necessary for IT professionals to successfully implement SAP software in a cloud environment, including best-practice architectures for IaaS, PaaS and SaaS deployments. The section on SAP’s in-memory database HANA has been significantly extended to cover Suite on HANA (SoH) and the different incarnations of HANA Enterprise Cloud (HEC) and Tailored Datacenter Integration (TDI). As cyber threats are a significant concern, it also explores appropriate security models for defending SAP cloud deployments against modern and sophisticated attacks. The reader will gain the insights needed to understand the respective benefits and drawbacks of various deployment models and how SAP on the cloud can be used to deliver IT efficiency and cost-savings in a secure and agile manner.

Bachelorarbeit aus dem Jahr 2010 im Fachbereich Informatik - Wirtschaftsinformatik, Note: 1,3, Fachhochschule Mainz, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Mietmodelle fur die Nutzung gehosteter Software, die mit Schlagworten wie On-Demand, Cloud Computing, SaaS oder ASP vermarktet werden, sind in den letzten Jahren in vielen Bereichen des Softwaremarktes auf dem Vormarsch. Angetrieben durch die Wirtschaftskrise versprechen die Marketingaussagen von SaaS-Anbietern besonders mittelstandischen Unternehmen den kostengunstigen Zugang zu komplexen Geschaftsanwendungen, ohne das krisenbedingt eingeschrankte Investitionsbudget zu belasten. Nachdem sich SaaS-Losungen im Bereich des Customer Relationship Managements bereits erfolgreich etablieren konnten, und auch ERP-Systeme den Weg in die Cloud beschreiten, gewinnt dieser Bereich auch fur den Business Intelligence-Markt an Bedeutung. Klassisch werden Business Intelligence Produkte innerhalb des unternehmenseigenen Netzwerks (on-premise) betrieben, um die Anbindung an die in der Regel im gleichen Umfeld betriebenen Vorsysteme zu erleichtern. Die wachsende Zahl der Angebote fur das Hosting der klassischen Datenquellen fur BI-Losungen wie zum Beispiel ERP-Systeme oder Systeme fur Finanzbuchhaltung auf firmenexternen Systemen legt den Gedanken nahe, auch die Analyse dieser Daten auszulagern. Besonders fur die Zielgruppe der mittelstandischen Unternehmen, die uber ein begrenztes Budget fur den Aufbau und Erhalt einer eigenen BI-Infrastruktur verfugen, sind in letzter Zeit viele gehostete Losungen auf den Markt gekommen, die fur den BI-Markt an Bedeutung gewinnen. Das Software-as-a-Service-Modell verspricht Einsparungen im Bereich der IT-Investitionen und operativen Kosten bei kurzen Vertragslaufzeiten. Diese Bachelorarbeit soll die Frage klaren, ob der Ubertrag dieses Konzept auf Business Intelligence das Potential hat, herkommliche on-premise-Losungen zu ersetzen, und fur welche Einsatzgebiete ein solches Konzept in Frage kommt.
