PLANO, Texas -- May 9, 2013

Dell Services today announced the launch of its ZeroIMPACT migration services
for SAP® solutions, designed to help customers transition from outdated IT
environments to contemporary environments with minimal downtime and reduced
risk.

Dell developed its ZeroIMPACT migrations for SAP solutions to deliver legacy
migration with little to no downtime using its parallel transformation
methodology. Dell consultants work with SAP customers to evaluate legacy and
new environments side-by-side in order to understand the features and
functionalities before developing the most efficient transformation plan.
During the migration process, the legacy environment continues running while
migration activities take place. Dell’s software captures and queues all
transactions occurring during the migration and then syncs them to the
migrated system.

Dell’s ZeroIMPACT solution was developed with tools, technology and expertise
from its hardware, services and software groups, including Quest’s SharePlex
and Foglight enterprise software solutions. The end-to-end solution provides a
cost-effective, low-impact alternative to companies needing to move their
mission-critical SAP enterprise applications to more stable, modern
environments, minimizing downtime, maximizing performance and taking advantage
of the latest cloud and hybrid environments to reduce costs.

Dell Extends Presence in SAP PartnerEdge Program, Becomes SAP Channel Partner
and Reseller of SAP Solutions

Dell also announced that it has become an SAP channel partner in the SAP
PartnerEdge® program. Dell is now authorized to resell the SAP HANA® platform;
SAP Sybase® and SAP BusinessObjects™ solution; and the SAP ERP application. As
an SAP channel partner and value-added reseller, Dell now provides a complete
portfolio of SAP solutions that encompass all aspects required for successful
implementation of SAP solutions. These include licensing, implementation and
customization services, training and documentation, optimization and support.
As such, Dell can now help customers lower cost and risk, and further enhance
value for customers’ investments in SAP solutions.

SAP Certified

Dell is proud to announce that it also recently became an SAP services partner
in the SAP PartnerEdge program and SAP-certified provider of solution
implementation based on the Run SAP methodology for the United States. Dell
also recently received SAP global certification as a provider of application
management, hosting and cloud services for SAP applications. Dell consultants
have the expertise to help customers get the most out of their SAP solutions
no matter the environment in which they are run –- via their own in-house data
center or hosted or hybrid environment.

“SAP has been the gold standard in enterprise software for many years, and we
are proud to be closely aligned with them with our legacy migration strategies
and services today. As hardware and delivery capabilities age, legacy systems
can’t always keep up with the continual advances in software technology. Dell
has developed a low-impact solution that will help transform legacy
environments with little to no impact to operations,” said Ramki Ramamurthy,
vice president, Enterprise Applications, Dell Services.
