Co-Innovation and Certification
Reassure your customers that your hardware will work effectively with SAP solutions with our hardware certification services.
The SAP Integration and Certification Center (SAP ICC) works with partners who provide appliances and peripherals to SAP customers. Most importantly SAP ICC tests and certifies hardware appliances, storage solutions, and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) platforms that support SAP HANA.
SAP also wants to support customers implementing use cases for the Internet of Things (IoT) by testing devices such as sensors or IoT gateways for integration with SAP Business Technology Platform.
If you're a printer vendor, you can take advantage of our SAP Printer Vendor program to help ensure the ongoing compatibility of your device types with SAP solutions.
Hardware and IaaS Certification for SAP HANA
SAP offers certification for appliance and enterprise storage solutions so that customers can unlock the full potential of SAP HANA.
The true power of SAP HANA is only realized when the combination of hardware infrastructure and software works in perfect harmony to efficiently process massive volumes of real-time data using in-memory computing. Hardware certifications for SAP HANA help SAP customers to reduce hardware and operation costs, mitigate risk, optimize time-to-value, and gain additional flexibility in selecting a hardware partner to run SAP HANA.
Certification scenarios for SAP HANA include:
- Hardware appliance solutions for SAP HANA
- Enterprise-storage solutions
- Infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) platforms for SAP HANA
Each scenario comes with its own test procedure to determine if the hardware meets the performance criteria required to run SAP HANA in production.
Once testing is concluded successfully, you will receive a detailed certification letter that details the exact validity date of the certification. We will also provide you with a certification logo that you can use to promote the successful certification to your customers in your online and printed communications.
In addition, we will list your fully-certified appliance hardware in our online hardware directory for SAP HANA. This gives your company exposure to the thousands of customers that visit SAP.com each day.
SAP E-Mobility Solution Charge Point Integration Certification
Using data from multiple charge points, the SAP E-Mobility solution enables end-to-end electric vehicle supply equipment and charging operations.
The push for electric vehicles may have shifted into overdrive, but it is going to take a serious overhaul of the entire mobility ecosystem supporting new e-mobility-based business models beyond the set up and management of charging stations. SAP is working with a wide array of hardware partners to integrate charging infrastructure into business processes.
The SAP E-Mobility platform enables companies in multiple industries to build and run charging networks. The charge point agnostic solution enables you to set up and operate heterogeneous charging infrastructure from multiple electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) vendors to collect relevant charging session and charge point data to trigger related business processes including session billing and EVSE maintenance according to your business and operation role. In addition, you can integrate energy data to optimize the charging process to overcome grid limitations.
SAP Internet of Things Device Certification
Using information from sensors other smart devices, SAP IoT technical capabilities are transforming business models.
As always-on connectivity expands across the globe, businesses are finding new ways to use the Internet of Things to work smarter, improve jobs, and delight customers. SAP IoT technologies provide a full IoT solution stack built on SAP Business Technology Platform. A key component of this is the SAP Internet of Things (IoT) service, which includes the SAP IoT Gateway app.
SAP Internet of Things
The SAP IoT service enables customers and partners to develop, customize, and operate IoT business applications in the cloud. We provide core technical services to process device data at a high velocity with streaming analytics and device management capabilities. You can establish a secure connection to remote devices using a wide range of IoT protocols and manage the device lifecycle from onboarding to decommissioning. In addition, you can collect and process sensor data at scale, either at the edge or in the cloud, and store it on SAP Business Technology Platform for use by other applications.
SAP is working with a wide array of SAP hardware partners and device vendors to pre-test and certify devices and IoT integrations with SAP Business Technology Platform.
SAP Printer Vendor Program
We collaborate with leading printer manufacturers to combine the best printer features with SAP technology to benefit our mutual customers.
Printing is pivotal for many business processes, and the number and capabilities of available printer models is growing steadily. SAP and the leading printer manufacturers are cooperating to implement the best combinations of printer features and SAP technology to benefit our mutual customers. Through the SAP Printer Vendor program, members can co-develop solutions for broader support of printer models used with SAP.
Printing from SAP software can be a critical business activity for SAP customers, and the printer model and device type combinations developed under the SAP Printer Vendor program are listed online.
Customers want to know that they can rely on SAP to get the full benefit from their IT investment, including printers. Modern printers offer important new features – such as being able to communicate their status to centralized monitoring functionality within SAP software, enabling a rapid reaction to problems or optimizing cost-effective maintenance.
SAP hardware certification gives customers the confidence to invest in your offerings – helping you expand your business and accelerate sales cycles.
