SAP recently announced that Service and Support organization offers a development service to build new cloud applications.
SAP said the service builds them on SAP HANA Cloud Platform and through the SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud service and also extends existing cloud solutions from SAP.
Customers can enjoy the development, deployment, maintenance and future updates services with monthly subscription which will also lower the total cost of ownership.
Company officials said customers can consume cloud innovations and reduces the up-front capital expenditure required for the technology.
To build and tailor mission critical solutions in a cloud, SAP has offered traditional on-premises application development services with a subscription based pricing model.
“With the services on a subscription basis, SAP is making it simpler for businesses to move to the cloud by maintaining individualized solutions as the mainstream cloud solutions from SAP evolve,” said Klaus Weber, executive vice president, Custom Development, SAP.
