IRVING, Texas--()--NEC Corporation of America (NEC), a leading technology integrator of advanced IT, communications and networking solutions, today announced that it is now an SAP-certified provider of hosting services, an SAP-certified provider of operations services for the SAP HANA® platform, and an SAP-certified provider of application management services. The certifications confirm the ability of NEC to deliver these services with high quality for customers running SAP® solutions.

“SAP’s official certifications of NEC for hosting services, operations services for SAP HANA, and application management services demonstrate that NEC can deliver services with high-quality operational standards in Iron Mountain Data Centers,” said Geoff Woollacott, principal analyst/practice manager, Software and BI of Technology Business Research, Inc. “Combined with NEC’s server and storage subsystems that are SAP-certified for SAP HANA and NEC’s ProgrammableFlow® Software-defined Networking technology, these services enable NEC to deliver the advanced systems and service levels required by enterprise-grade clients.”

“As an SAP partner hosting SAP HANA® in the cloud, Monocle Systems is excited to see NEC achieve these SAP certifications for its service capabilities,” said Kane Baker, VP of Sales of Monocle Systems. “These services, together with NEC’s large-memory enterprise servers for SAP HANA, provide our data center customers a high level of performance and security to run their mission-critical SAP applications in one of most secure and resilient facilities in the world.”

As an SAP-certified provider of hosting services, operations services for the SAP HANA platform, and application management services, NEC will provide a professional delivery model based on best practices for mission-critical SAP applications. To achieve these certifications from SAP, NEC’s IT service management processes, security measures, facilities setup, experience in SAP operations, and staff went through extensive review by SAP. This review served to validate operations, service and support of SAP applications to help ensure compliance with SAP's requirements for quality, availability and security. With these certifications, NEC can deliver a broad portfolio of IT services related to SAP applications.”

To further ensure ongoing high standards, SAP-certified providers of services for SAP solutions undergo a rigorous assessment of their delivery and support capabilities every two years by SAP’s outsourcing operations partner certification group.

In addition to this latest certification announcement regarding NEC data center services, NEC also recently announced that its offerings for SAP HANA tailored data center integration have expanded beyond NEC enterprise servers to include NEC enterprise storage solutions.
