The Silicon Review
“We make it simple for companies to implement the latest SAP Applications today and the future.”
In 2011, Chris Carter saw the need for a company that could provide cost-effective, strategic solutions using the best of SAP, cloud and big data analytics. With a vision to be the world’s most customer-centric SAP HANA technology solution provider, Chris Carter founded Approyo.
A leading global SAP technology solution provider, Approyo is headquartered in Wisconsin with multiple offices around the globe. Approyo’s cloud environments are designed and tailored specifically to the needs of SAP customers in order to ensure dreams of success. The company’s goal is to bring data and information to businesses as fast as possible through an affordable solution.
Approyo: Simple Digital Transformation
Approyo supports companies making their shift to the SAP HANA platform by developing ready to deploy and secure cloud solutions. The distinct benefit that the SAP HANA platform has over other big data technologies is that it gives you the ability to fit structured and unstructured data right into the system, without the hassle of massive hardware deployment and huge costs. Approyo’s solution also allows customers to choose the pay-as-you-go model or a monthly subscription.
Providing Real World SAP Solutions
The company’s strategy is based on the platform eco-system trend that is becoming prevalent in the tech world. Approyo has seen the success of this model with Apple’s iOS, Google’s Android, and Salesforce’s Force.com. Using this strategy based on a platform and its eco-system, a large number of developers are able to build their businesses cost-effectively without the time-to-market disadvantages. Approyo launched the first ever SAP solution on a VM/Cloud in 2002. By doing so it opened the door to showcasing the world that an ERP solution like SAP could be put into a VM and spread across the landscape. The solution was a success because Approyo took it to market and got clients and drove revenue.
In the beginning, customers were afraid to try SAP in a cloud, thinking security and enterprise-based solutions were not possible in a cloud environment. As the cloud went more mainstream, customers started to put more faith in cloud-based solutions. It all started with one customer that had the faith to try to move its SAP solutions in the Approyo cloud. The customer gave Approyo its trust and it blossomed from there. Based on his comments and customers that followed, Approyo made enhancements every quarter, which were put into the solution.
“The leap you have to take from being an entrepreneur and the leap it takes to get customers to the new world of Big Data and SAP, it just fell into that world of Alice in Wonderland for me. With technology like the Cloud and Big Data going more mainstream and SAP HANA gaining traction, now is the time for companies to go down the rabbit hole of technology. ”
