At the recent SAPinsider HANA 2014 conference we attended, there was a lot of talk about SAP HANA being an innovative platform, but many commented that it was still an uncharted territory for them. In these early stages, it is hard for some companies to visualize how the potential benefits will actually stack up for their business processes. So it makes sense to test the waters; ensure the gains fit your particular business requirements.

Here’s where the Proof of Concept (POC) is invaluable. It allows businesses to dip their toe in the SAP HANA waters before taking the plunge.

Gold Client Solutions allows teams to quickly select, protect and copy subsets of only the relevant data they need to SAP HANA for POC evaluations, whether on premises or in the cloud. Yes, that’s right — in the SAP pond, Gold Client Solutions 8 is your big toe. It provides quick insight into whether it is too hot, too cold or just right for a deep dive into this modern platform.

Eby-Brown was among the first to consider SAP Business Suite powered by SAP HANA, but they didn’t take the leap without a POC using Gold Client Solutions. In only a few hours, the SAP team was able to target specific data of some key testing objectives to determine the value of the business case for ERP and HANA, particularly for MRP (manufacturing resource planning). The POC validated that the time to run MRP could be slashed from 6 or 7 hours to just minutes, allowing for adjustments multiple times a day. With that value-add, they were able to make the business casefor HANA.

Attunity recently announced that Gold Client Solutions 8 achieved certified integration with the SAP ERP 6.0 application running on SAP HANA. This validates that the solution has passed SAP’s formalized testing process and been proven to integrate with the latest release of SAP ERP running on SAP HANA.
