Sara Infoway: 360 Degree Solutions for Deploying S4 HANA
“We are an emerging technology company with all the necessary expertise and tools to seamlessly and securely integrate SAP-based solutions into any business environment,” speaks Rajiv Gupta, Managing Director and CEO of Sara Infoway. Headquartered in Hyderabad, India, Sara assists SMBs and government organizations with the best practices and tools for S4 HANA migrations and HANA technical upgrades. The firm can render SAP solutions on co-locations, cloud/VPS, and on-premise infrastructures. “Whether someone is deploying SAP for the first time or upgrading and migrating from the existing setup, we bring forward the most appropriate solution to meet the needs,” adds Gupta.
Albeit SAP has always been a robust platform, some key features set HANA many paces ahead of previous generation SAP systems. Gupta underlines the same to enunciate how SAP HANA can boost productivity and help achieve significant cost savings. This new platform is a column-oriented in-memory database that combines Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) and Online Transaction Processing (OLTP) operations into a single integrated system called OLTAP. This unified approach translates into faster access to data, queries, and significant improvement in processing results, which collectively afford competitive advantage and enhance organizational performance. It also enables organizations to access hot data promptly and in a cost-effective way.

Sara brings the advantages of this robust platform together with its industry know-how and in-depth understanding of a client’s business challenges and requirements to the table. Quoting an example, he elucidates how Sara assisted an offset printing firm, Pragati, to improve documentation, production scheduling, material planning, and wastage reduction. Before approaching Sara, the client was running SAP as a simple accounting software with no structured documentation of previous work and architecture. To help the company improve the poor standards of documentation, Sara designed a solution to integrate Pragati’s IMP (a production planning tool) with SAP that resulted in improved documentation of various operations and enabled the customer to achieve the desired results.
In another successful project, Sara assisted Liberty, a leading shoe manufacturer company, in upgrading to the SAP HANA solution. With the assistance from Sara, the shoe manufacturer was able to meet the demands of current business setup and improve the efficiency of its operations. Additionally, Sara has also catered some of the well-known names in the country like GVK Bio, Luminous Power, PayTM, and Indian Express.
Apart from assisting clients in leveraging SAP HANA, the firm also offers an array of solutions for cloud hosting, Dell VRTX VDI, and disaster recovery. With these proven market solutions, Sara has consistently created outstanding customer experiences over the years and has continually helped its customers to grow from “Good to Great”.
Moving ahead, the firm intends to bring a very simple and intuitive SAP HANA migration methodology that can assist its clients in adopting new and imperative technology with reduced migration challenges. Gupta concludes, “We plan to leverage this methodology approach to diversify our presence in India by 2018 and start expanding Sara’s footprint globally from 2019 onwards.”
