We were impressed with the expertise that we identified with itelligence as our hosting partner. We knew little about SAP HANA. They were experts, and we felt they were best equipped to satisfy us from that perspective.

Michael Johnson, CFO, Network Services Company

NETWORK’s successful SAP HANA journey goes through the cloud

About the Project

By adapting SAP HANA NETWORK is realizing productivity gains—thousands of percent improvements in some cases—rooted in better analysis. Further, by moving to a hosting platform, NETWORK freed up over 30 TB of tier-one storage, which were redeployed for other applications.

NETWORK’s SAP HANA journey did not originally include plans for the cloud. Instead, executives initially believed the company’s standard on-premise approach would continue to be the proper route. However, opinions changed when decision makers evaluated factors such as a cost analysis over the next decade and disaster recovery requirements.
