Wharfedale Technologies Inc. has made its Transformation POC (proof of concept) Service for SAP HANA® readily available for enterprise customers. With this service, Wharfedale will help its customers plan, design and execute an SAP HANA migration to Microsoft Azure within a limited scope as a proof of concept to prepare them for their digital transformation journey.

Wharfedale's Transformation POC Service for SAP HANA comes at a crucial time for enterprise customers. According to a recent report from tech analyst Forrester, many companies are facing roadblocks in their digital transformation efforts due to a resistance to change and the absence of a clear roadmap. The Transformation POC Service for SAP HANA addresses these hurdles and helps customers make their digital transformation journey.

"Wharfedale not only performs a migration. We also help customers focus on digital transformation. Everyone in the world is looking at digital transformation right now and we believe that the cloud is the first step," said Ganesh Radhakrishnan, CEO, Wharfedale Technologies. "With a move to SAP HANA platform in the cloud, customers can begin to look at the next big product of SAP, called SAP S/4HANA."

Wharfedale's Transformation POC Service for SAP HANA is a three-week long project. In Week 1 Wharfedale will review the customer's environment and install the SAP HANA platform on Azure based on deployment best practices. Week 2 and Week 3 will cover the migration and testing phase. At the end of each week, customers can expect Wharfedale to execute a list of action items corresponding to the main objective of that specific week.

The deliverables of the Transformation POC Service for SAP HANA are as follows:

  • A bill of materials (BOM) with Azure servers for the selected SAP HANA system
  • An architecture diagram for SAP Landscape with SAP HANA platform migration
  • Azure infrastructure setup and configuration of the SAP HANA platform
  • A proof of concept for the SAP HANA workload running in Azure
