Centiq were established in 1998 - originally focussed on the delivery of infrastructure landscapes for Application Providers. Over the course of the following 10 years we developed a strongs skills base specifically around the provision of optimised and efficient SAP Landscapes either for new adoption or for customers looking to migrate (from non-SAP or old-SAP) platforms.
In 2008, Centiq formed an alliance with IBM to create a shrink-wrapped "appliace" to address the BWA market - the appliance combined IBM HW and SW along with Centiq only services and tools (such as monitiq) to provide customers a complete turn-key solution for deploying BWA. This included the ongoing support and management of the BWA systems to ensure operational optimisation.
In 2011 we evolved this model around the launch of HANA as our understanding was, this approach would help reduce much of the ambugiuty and complexity involved in customer deployments of SAP HANA. Today, are offering provides customers some of the most valuable tools and highest skills in the industry with a wealth of customers references for succesful HANA deployments across COPA, BW, CRM and more recently ECC. If a customer is looking to deploy SAP HANA with reduced risk and rapid results then Centiq can assist.
Centiq have been an early adopter and thought leader around SAP HANA and subsequently have a wealth of both sector and application specific expertise that can mean the difference to a customer in realising the value in SAP HANA quickly. Our unique approach to HANA implementation offers customers a specialised set of skills and tools only available through Centiq. Our existing HANA customer base along with our well established HANA knowledge base will provide many options for customers looking to further review or assess HANA prior to making a commitment.
In addition we have a Proof of Value program which is the only one available of it's kind in the UK&I and offers customers a fully portable, mobile HANA "in a box" offering, wrapped with services to provide an onsite evaluation of HANA in a real customer environment for an agreed period of time (1,2 or 3 months). This helps customer gather important information around the value HANA can bring within a business and assist in building the business case that will be used to agree internal funding.
