Title: Big Bang vs Agile - Move to SAP S/4HANA faster, more easily and more affordably with HPE’s agile S4in4 approach

Originally broadcast on:
Date: Thursday, March 16, 2017
Time: 11:00 am ET/ 8:00 am PT
Duration: 60 minutes (including Q&A)



What You'll Learn

There is a pattern starting to play out for companies as they move from non-SAP HANA to SAP HANA and then struggle to navigate the next steps. Customers can struggle to understand the level of effort and scope associated with SAP S/4HANA conversions and the adoption of SAP’s various cloud solutions. Good information from trusted sources can be inconsistent and hard to find.

As one of SAP’s largest customers in the midst of our own SAP S/4HANA conversion, HPE knows the challenges associated with these next steps firsthand. HPE is also a market-leading provider of SAP HANA infrastructure, so we are uniquely positioned to see this pattern. We are able to leverage technical expertise derived from thousands of SAP HANA implementations globally, including our own, to create an agile four-phased approach to SAP S/4HANA conversions aptly named S4in4.

This session overviews the four major steps virtually every SAP ERP customer has to navigate to get across the chasm and in-line with SAP’s innovation investments and ‘Digital Core’ vision. Whether you are considering a move to SAP S/4HANA now or in the future, this session will provide you with valuable insights needed to chart your course. With HPE and S4in4, good information from a trusted name in the SAP ecosystem is not hard to find. Don’t miss it.

Topics include:

• What is HPE’s S4in4 agile approach and how could it help you?
• Understand your current gaps and Roadmap Options to SAP S/4HANA
• Understand the level of effort and scope associated with each phase in your adoption plan

Title: Your Right Mix – HPE explores how Mission Critical Connections to your SAP S/4HANA digital core influence your hybrid cloud deployment options

Originally broadcast on:
Date: Thursday, March 30, 2017
Time: 11:00 am ET/ 8:00 am PT
Duration: 60 minutes (including Q&A)


What You'll Learn

It’s clear that every SAP implementation will result in a hybrid cloud deployment as companies migrate and adopt SAP S/4HANA. What is often not so clear is which of the hybrid cloud deployments are right for your environment. This session examines the importance of the roughly 10 Mission Critical Connections surrounding your SAP S/4HANA digital core …and why they must be considered as you search for and find the “right mix” for your specific situation.

Not every hybrid scenario makes business sense. While anything is possible, “anything” is not always affordable or supportable. What scenarios will actually work for you?

This session helps you understand what your right mix should be by examining key mission critical connections and the impact they have on your efforts to best architect and future-proof your hybrid cloud solution. We will overview our point of view and relationship with SAP around its SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud offering. HPE believes every SAP customer will be a hybrid customer and we are committed to making hybrid simple via our #1 ranked SAP-optimized solution portfolio.

Topics include:

• Understanding Mission Critical connections
• Right Mix considerations for Hybrid Cloud
• Mission critical solutions from HPE for SAP HANA and SAP S/4HANA
• Incorporating SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud into your architecture
• HPE Cloud partnerships and Flexible Capacity options

What You'll Learn

One thing is certain for almost every SAP customer deploying SAP HANA in their data center: eventually you will need to re-implement your legacy business continuity strategy. For SAP data specifically, you will find yourself looking at a number of point products all claiming to be SAP-optimized and fully featured.

This session explains how to create a forward looking business continuity strategy for your entire SAP deployment and more broadly, your business critical recovery group that is often inclusive of non-SAP applications. With HPE Enterprise Application Continuity for SAP, we have your business critical workloads covered… and recovered! SAP, Non-SAP, SAP HANA, Non-SAP HANA, Appliances or TDI.

April 27 Webinar Event Details

Title: Your Edge | Your Core – Bringing OT and IT together to implement a future-proofed IoT strategy with SAP and HPE

Date: Thursday, April 27, 2017
Time: 11:00 am ET/ 8:00 am PT
Duration: 60 minutes (including Q&A)


What You'll Learn

SAP’s IoT vision converges OT and IT data on the edge driving a need for more than just intelligent gateways. Since IDC predicts that 45% of IoT created data will be stored, processed, analyzed and acted upon close to or at the edge, what happens when (not if) SAP starts sending IT data to the edge to enable better decisions and edge-to-core ‘connected transaction’ scenarios?

This session demonstrates how SAP Leonardo Edge, SAP’s solution for IoT edge computing, runs on HPE’s Converged Edge Systems with compute, control systems, and data acquisition in a single enclosure and hardened for IoT edge environments. We will overview SAP and HPE’s joint solution strategy and roadmap for IoT and go into the architectural implications of the various intelligent edge and smart location use cases. HPE's strategy of “shift left” and “converge” is helping drive the OT-IT integration. Attend and see what the future has in store… available today.

Topics include:

• Shift left – move the Data Center to the Edge
• Converge – put multiple functions into an Edge server
• Aggregate – collect data to digitalize it and bring Information Tech (IT) and Operational Tech (OT) together
• Run end-to-end – integrate SAP Leonardo Edge running on HPE into the SAP cloud and enterprise systems
