Capgemini’s New Industrialized Migration Solution For SAP NetWeaver® BW on
SAP HANA® Helps Accelerate Organizations’ Ability To Gain Competitive Edge
with SAP HANA
NEW YORK -- June 25, 2013
Capgemini, one of the world’s foremost providers of consulting, technology and
outsourcing services, today announced the North American availability of
Capgemini’s Industrialized Migration Solution (IMS) for the SAP NetWeaver®
Business Warehouse (SAP NetWeaver BW) application on the SAP HANA® database. A
“factory" based solution, IMS is intended to help companies to migrate their
implementations of SAP NetWeaver BW running on a standard relational database
management system (RDBMS) to SAP NetWeaver BW running on SAP HANA.
The new IMS solution is designed to leverage SAP’s methodology for
rapid-deployment solutions to help execute the migration in a fixed timeframe
of a matter of weeks in most cases. It also combines Capgemini’s comprehensive
migration methodology and its highly trained onshore and Rightshore^®
resources on SAP HANA, which is expected to provide an efficient and
cost-effective migration option. In a phased approach, it is planned for a
migration assessment to first detail the system and project requirements and
migration strategy followed by pre-migration preparation activities, then
execution of the migration leveraging SAP’s rapid-deployment methods,
operational-readiness testing, and, finally, post-migration optimization.
Greater efficiency in migrating SAP NetWeaver BW on RDBMSs to SAP NetWeaver on
SAP HANA is expected to allow organizations to more quickly realize the power
behind in-memory computing, helping to allow quicker business decisions and
more timely actionable intelligence.
IMS joins an ever-growing set of solutions offered by Capgemini, in support of
SAP software, supported by its more than 13,000 practitioners who collaborate
with clients in all industries and regions across the complete lifecycle of
SAP solutions: licensing, implementation, hosting, and application management,
with a focus on delivering value.
“At last month’s SAPPHIRE® NOW conference, attendees voiced to Capgemini
tremendous excitement for the solution, as they requested cost-effective tools
and extensive experience to help them chart their course forward with SAP
HANA,” said Lanny Cohen, chief executive officer, Capgemini U.S. LLC.
“Capgemini is well positioned with IMS, with which we aim to help our valued
clients realize the full business potential of SAP HANA.”
“Migrating our customers’ existing implementations of SAP NetWeaver BW on
standard RDBMSs to SAP NetWeaver BW running on SAP HANA is an important part
of SAP's data warehousing strategy,” said Vijay Vijayasankar, global vice
president, Technology and Innovation Platform, SAP. “We expect the migration
will provide customers with access to modern analytic capabilities in a
non-disruptive manner. We commend Capgemini on its IMS solution, through which
we anticipate our joint customers can take advantage of these migration
capabilities its intended technical and business benefits.”

SAP HANA is expected to be available soon in additional regions worldwide.
