SUSE, as part of its participation at GITEX 2017, will demonstrate how customers can accelerate their digital transformation with the SUSE high performance platform for SAP HANA, S/4 HANA.
Paul Abi-Chahine, regional director, EMEA East, SUSE, said, “From high-availability, zero downtime, Infrastructure- and Container-as-a-Service to software-defined storage, much of the innovative flagship technology driving digital transformation is based on open source and will be part of the portfolio SUSE will showcase at GITEX.”
Chahine highlighted that the company’s goal is it to provide best-of-breed enterprise solutions that offer its customers the freedom of choice with no vendor lock-in, and that are compatible with the solutions of other vendors.
As for partners, he said that he believes that working together presents a lot of opportunities for both parties. “They benefit directly from the high demand of SUSE products, continuous growth and attractive margins,” said Chahine. “We have re-launched the SUSE Partner Programe roughly a year ago to reflect the needs of our partners in the digital era with all its dynamics. We offer partners exclusive access to information, technical and sales training with certifications, joint customer and partner events and marketing and sales support in all stages of the business. In addition, the huge SUSE Partner Ecosystem, which is unique in the industry and stands for innovation in the data centre, makes SUSE an attractive vendor to do business with.”
