QSC AG’s Hosting Services Classified as “Excellent”; Operations Services for SAP HANA® Recertified by SAP

Cologne, 2 November 2016 – QSC AG announced today that, in an extensive audit of its hosting services, QSC performed “excellently” in areas including service provision and service management. Further, QSC has received recertification from SAP as a provider of operations services for the SAP HANA® platform.

The audit particularly highlighted QSC’s solution-driven competence in an environment running SAP HANA, its high degree of service process maturity, and the integration of SAP® applications into the Pure Enterprise Cloud (PEC), QSC’s cloud architecture and workplace environment. Comments Felix Höger, Chief Technology and Operations Officer (COO/CTO) at QSC: “Our Pure Enterprise Cloud makes it especially easy for companies to enter the cloud age by offering absolute freedom of choice and flexibility when they procure their IT landscapes from the cloud. Customers receive exactly the mix they need in terms of highly standardised services and individual application landscapes via a standard surface independent of specific end appliances. We also use this to provide our customers with state-of-the-art business software such as SAP S/4HANA.”

Giving SME players a lead in terms of expertise
Built on an in-memory database (IMDB), the SAP HANA platform enables companies to evaluate large quantities of data in real time in line with the big data principle. Numerous QSC customers from a wide range of industries deploy this solution – for example, in order to rapidly detect future market developments and, based on this knowledge, act early to adapt their own products or services.

To make SAP solutions even more intuitive and easy to use, QSC has already optimised numerous SAP applications for its customers based on the new SAP Fiori® user experience. This offers users an app-like experience when working with SAP S/4HANA®. The standard user interface on tablets, smartphones or desktops means that frequently recurring tasks can be performed very conveniently. This in turn enables companies to benefit from enhanced process quality and speed.
