SAP has announced the availability of the SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud in New Zealand, designed to offer onshore deployment of real-time, in-memory capabilities for the first time across the country.

Established with SAP Premium Supplier partner Hewlett Packard Enterprise, the software giant claims this is the first cloud service of its kind in New Zealand, and will enable local businesses and government agencies to simplify IT requirements going forward.

Providing real-time capabilities of SAP’s in-memory platform, SAP HANA, in a private, fully managed cloud, the solution offers all-inclusive subscription-based pricing for SAP software and infrastructure.

“The capabilities of SAP HANA, combined with the ability to run mission-critical business applications in a cloud environment, are enabling New Zealand businesses and its public sector to transform digitally and run live,” says Graeme Riley, Managing Director, SAP New Zealand.

“The new service also addresses the requirements of many New Zealand organisations that are eager to move to the cloud, but have concerns with hosting data offshore.”

Riley says the local investment is part of SAP’s global strategy to provide full security and regional data compliance to all its customers.

In addition, Riley says the move further demonstrates SAP’s commitment to deliver against this strategy by building up its service offerings to clients of all industries across Australia and New Zealand and builds on the company’s local cloud provisioning footprint, which includes existing SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud services in Sydney and Canberra, which opened in April 2014 and April 2016 respectively.

“Hewlett Packard Enterprise is dedicated to providing a technologically advanced, low-risk solution to businesses in New Zealand that leverages the significant R&D HPE has committed to the SAP platform,” adds Keith Watson, Managing Director, Hewlett Packard Enterprise New Zealand.

“HPE's solutions and services for SAP HANA help complete a managed cloud offering for SAP customers in New Zealand, helping them effectively manage sophisticated SAP HANA workloads in real-time.”

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
