As businesses adopt SAP HANA to run their core applications, the server environment needs to scale on demand with high reliability. IBM Power Systems scale large HANA environments with flexibility to easily accommodate changes in business needs while increasing application availability and systems admin productivity.

Customers told Forrester that moving to IBM Power Systems reduced the cost to purchase, manage, and maintain systems to deploy SAP HANA, so Forrester Consulting conducted a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study and examined the potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by deploying Power Systems for SAP HANA.

The purpose of this study is to provide readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of the IBM Power Systems for SAP HANA on their organizations. To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with this investment, Forrester interviewed several customers with experience using IBM Power Systems for SAP HANA.
