"We were literally sold out before deployment because we could finally offer SAP HANA services on demand in the most cost-effective and high-performing way."
Hilgardt Cloete Managing Director iSphere Technologies
iSphere Technologies provides virtualized hosting services for the South African market, focusing on small and medium sized businesses, which might otherwise be unable to afford enterprise-class technology solutions. It employs 16 specialists and delivers SAP applications to more than 130 customers in South Africa and the wider continent.
