PRIMEFLEX for SAP HANA boosts enterprise application hosting strategy of iSphere Technologies

"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."

Ludi Nel Managing Director iSphere Technologies

The customer

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.

The challenge

iSphere wanted to offer SAP HANA® as a hosted service but considered it too expensive to deploy and maintain. It needed to find a flexible, cost-effective platform that could deliver high SAP HANA performance to its local SME customer base.

The solution

Working with long-term partner Fujitsu, the company implemented FUJITSU Integrated System PRIMEFLEX® for SAP HANA powered by FUJITSU FlexFrame® Orchestrator to enable a virtualized software and hardware environment that would reduce costs without compromising performance.

The benefit

  • Cloud-based SAP HANA hosting solution is doubling business every quarter, bringing new revenue
  • Fujitsu-based system is easily scalable to meet rising demand and new customers can be provisioned within an hour rather than weeks
  • Bringing enterprise-class applications to SMEs in Africa at an affordable cost
  • Provides a white-label offering to local SAP partners who can then expand their own business
