SAP Canada’s Markham, Ontario data centre has declared itself fully operational, serving customers using SuccessFactors, a human capital management (HCM) company acquired by SAP in 2012.
The data centre is meant to supplement SAP hosting services in its European data centres, while also meaning that for Canadian clients their data no longer has to move across international boundaries, helping to prevent the possibility of compromised security.
The concern over data security is more than just rhetoric. With hosted data including government along with a mix of public and private sector clients, the opening of the Canadian data centre allows clients to pursue contracts that require the travel of data securely as it remains on Canadian soil.
“Organizations in some Canadian provinces are prevented from entering into contracts with cloud providers because of the restrictive laws around data privacy,” said SAP Canada managing director Bob Elliott. “There is much to gain from modifying such legislation to allow them the same access to cloud that the private sector enjoys.”
