Lumen will help simplify the configuration and deployment of SAP HANA. This will support VARs, other channel partners and 75,000 SMB customers globally
SAP’s Joost Tigelaar
“Until today, VARs were typically on their own to manage and host their instances of SAP Business One,” said Joost Tigelaar, SAP‘s vice president of global SME enterprise resource planning (ERP) sales. “Now, the Lumen platform can quickly and cost effectively enable intelligent enterprises with SAP HANA in the cloud. The Lumen platform can help partners and customers by offering them a choice of hybrid deployment models and cloud infrastructure providers, bringing the benefits of both SAP HANA and the cloud to our ecosystem.”
SAP HANA Benefits
SAP Business One is SAP’s enterprise ERP solution for small businesses, and the subsidiaries of midmarket and large enterprises. Eight hundred authorized channel partners deliver SAP Business One.
SAP Business One connects and streamlines key operational processes. It provides real-time insights for decisions that drive profitable growth.
The Lumen platform integrates edge computing, global fiber network infrastructure, connected security and cloud connectivity. It will manage the SAP infrastructure for businesses using SAP Business One throughout most of the world. SAP HANA on the Lumen platform uses a monthly service-based pricing model for the entire stack of software and services.
Garret Gee is Lumen‘s senior vice president of indirect sales.
“Our partners, leveraging Lumen’s expertise, can help their customers rapidly deploy SAP applications and SAP HANA environments in a certified hybrid hosting infrastructure within weeks rather than months, for faster time to value and ROI,” he said. “This opens up a broad opportunity for our channel partners to expand their support within their clients well past traditional network and voice solutions into the ERP stack and technology.”
Lumen’s global relationship with SAP aligned with Lumen’s channel partner relationships is a win-win, Gee said.
“The expansion of Lumen hosting and management capabilities directly enables VARs and traditional agents to quickly address their customers’ needs in moving to cost-effective cloud deployment with diverse options around choice,” he said.
