SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud established in Canberra
SAP Australia has established an SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud service in Canberra for the federal government’s Shared Services Centre.
The service offers the capabilities of SAP’s in-memory platform SAP HANA in a private managed cloud environment.
SAP Australia has established the service in the Canberra Data Centre in conjunction with supplier partner HPE. It has been specifically equipped to support federal government agencies.
The Shared Services Centre has signed on as the first customer of the service in the facility. The centre is the only dedicated shared services provider in the Australian public service. It is operated by the Department of Employment and the Department of Education and Training.
Using the cloud service, the centre aims to increase efficiencies across a range of back-office activities, including payroll processing and financial services.
“SAP is committed to scaling the unique capabilities we deliver to our public sector customers, such as the Shared Services Centre,” SAP Australia Executive General Manager for Public Services Damien Bueno said.
“The new Canberra facility also addresses the requirements of many Australian federal agencies that are eager to apply the real-time capabilities of in-memory computing in the cloud but have concerns about hosting data offshore.”
In November 2014, SAP committed to investing in Australia to build up its capabilities for government customers. The launch of the new cloud service forms part of this investment.
