Putting five objections against cloud solutions to the test
- Data privacy
- Lack of know-how carriers
- Corporate culture
- Integration Problems
By implementing an authorization concept, employees only have access to information that they really need. Use of several firewalls and other security measures also guarantees the security of the data in the cloud. Regular internal and external audits through SAP verify compliance with the high security standards. SAP customers define in a contract, which data processing center they prefer as the location for their data. Customers can also opt for a processing center in Germany.
You can use a large variety of different data sources. Your data is either made available through other cloud solutions or delivered through existing on-premise systems. Data can be replicated in the cloud, which is especially useful if you are not using an SAP HANA database yourself.
