SAP has inked a deal in Korea that will see local IT consulting firm, LG CNS, drive deployments of the German software vendor’s cloud platform HANA in the Asian market.
Both companies said they are targeting to tap in-memory computing capabilities to offer processes that require batch processing in real-time, reported The Korea Times on Monday. The new partnership will see SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud Center set up in LG’s cloud data center located in Busan. The IT consulting vendor is the services subsidiary of LG Group.
The data center is equipped with a cooling system that taps natural wind currents to cool its hardware. According to LG, the building is designed to be energy-efficient and is Korea’s first building capable of withstanding earthquakes of up to 8 magnitude.
SAP is hopeful the partnership will help the company grow its client base, with the HEC Center providing the infrastructure needed for cloud computing and delivering services to existing and future clients.
Both companies will establish a central information database containing all customer problems and situations, making it easier for SAP clients to customise their ERP systems according to their vertical markets and business requirements. The partnership will look at implementing industry-specific offering and customised HANA modules, which LG CNS said would drive sales of the SAP cloud platform.
