San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 01, 2012
Freeborders Inc., a global provider of consulting, technology and outsourcing solutions for Internet based businesses, today introduced the SAP2Cloud℠ business solutions accelerator. This accelerator helps companies to consolidate their IT landscape and, thereby, reduce hardware operation costs while increasing flexibility and scalability by migrating to a cloud environment. Within 90 days companies can assess their current SAP environment, design the implementation concept, and implement that concept to complete their SAP migration to the cloud.
One of the early adopters of SAP2Cloud accelerator is PENTAX RICOH IMAGING AMERICAS CORPORATION (PENTAX), a leader in the production of a variety of adventure ready digital cameras including weather-resistant digital SLRs and stylish, compact, waterproof cameras, as well as lenses, flash units, binoculars, scopes, and eyepieces. PENTAX engaged Freeborders to migrate to a more efficient IT infrastructure and move the majority of their internal systems to the cloud. Using the SAP2Cloud accelerator, the team migrated PENTAX’ SAP systems to the public cloud in about three months. This project eliminated the need for a capital outlay to replace antiquated hardware and helped to reduce operating costs.
“The Freeborders team made sure that our transition to a different IT infrastructure – from the physical move to the migration to the cloud – was a complete success. We significantly reduced our operational expenses and have been able to reap the business benefits of a more lean and agile IT infrastructure, said Gary Robinson, IT Manager, PENTAX RICOH IMAGING AMERICAS CORPORATION.
SAP2Cloud is designed to help companies make their IT infrastructure more scalable and flexible to enable business growth within three months. The migration to a cloud environment helps companies to dynamically respond to changing business needs while saving on hardware resources and energy use.
“The cost of managing expiring hardware, bandwidth usage, and the ever growing need for manpower are business hurdles of the past. Companies now have access to technology solutions that are executable within 90 days to act on business opportunities quickly,” said Graham Bolton, executive vice president at Freeborders Consulting. “Especially cloud technology has opened up new opportunities for companies to reduce their infrastructure and long-term support costs. Freeborders’ SAP2Cloud enables companies to get the greatest ROI from their existing SAP environment and grow their business faster than ever.”
