CenturyLink Becomes Authorized Premium Supplier for SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud in Asia Pacific


CenturyLink, Inc. today announced it has signed an agreement with SAP to offer premium supplier services for SAP HANA® Enterprise Cloud in Asia Pacific. These services, delivered through data centers located in Singapore and India, can help organizations across the region accelerate their digital transformation journeys by combining the real-time computing power of the SAP HANA platform with CenturyLink's global network infrastructure and in-house expertise in SAP® solutions.

Through this agreement, CenturyLink's infrastructure and services capabilities help expand the SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud offering. SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud is a private, secure cloud fully managed by SAP and supported by global partners, and is often used by companies that run mission-critical applications in the cloud.

"By expanding our SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud service offering in Asia Pacific, we continue to help businesses move their enterprise applications to the cloud and innovate using the latest-generation applications based on SAP HANA."

CenturyLink's Global IT & Managed Services group provides a broad range of technology-enabled business solutions and managed services including cloud enablement, big data-as-a-service, advanced decision sciences, digital commerce, managed security application development and modernization, quality assurance and testing, and disaster recovery services. In addition, Global IT & Managed Services offers a suite of analytical solutions built on its Model Controller platform designed to operationalize predictive models.

Following a rigorous audit and approval process, both CenturyLink's infrastructure and practitioners have achieved premium supplier status for SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud. This further establishes CenturyLink as a trusted SAP technology partner, with significant experience delivering a dynamic suite of SAP solutions and services.

According to Peter Harkin, head of SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud & Managed Services Sales for SAP Asia Pacific & Japan(APJ), "With the announcement of CenturyLink as a premium supplier for SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud, SAP further extends its capacity to provide managed private cloud services in a number of geographies across APJ. The success of and demand for the SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud offering is driving these partnerships, which we anticipate will benefit our customers. Now more than ever, we believe that SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud is a 'must consider' choice as our customers look to run their mission-critical SAP applications in the cloud while digitally transforming their businesses."

Through this holistic approach, CenturyLink can support large-scale production workloads and provide metro-specific disaster recovery services. These characteristics are enhanced by CenturyLink's advanced network, which enables businesses to quickly deploy their SAP application workloads to empower global workforces.
