Connecting Through SAP HANA Cloud
For SAP HANA Cloud to serve as the center of this new landscape, the ability to seamlessly connect to different data sources was necessary. This process turned out even easier than Geberit hoped for. Connecting SAP HANA Cloud to their Azure SQL Database took just 15 minutes.
This connection enables Geberit to load data directly between the two solutions, without the need for their previous middleware tools. With these middleware tools removed, they can now reliably connect their CRM data out of the Azure SQL Service to SAP HANA Cloud.
Also, SAP HANA Cloud connects with their SAP BW on HANA, helping better bridge their on-premise systems to the cloud. This new landscape gives Geberit the full benefits of the cloud on top of their on-premise investments. With SAP HANA Cloud, they scale up when needed and easily make connections to new data sources.
Whether data is stored on premise or in the cloud, or comes from SAP or non-SAP sources, SAP HANA Cloud brings this data together through virtualization or replication. Geberit decides with complete flexibility where to store the data and how.
