G3 Global announce SAP Business All-in-One in G3 ConnectedBusinessCloud™

Press Release   •   Feb 23, 2010 15:30 GMT

G3 Global has announced the launch of their Subscription-based Hosting Offering for SAP Business All-in-One, as part of the G3 ConnectedBusinessCloud™, the technology platform that enables business process innovation™.
The G3 ConnectedBusinessCloud solution is designed to drive massive cost savings for the mid-market by delivering a portfolio of pre-configured, fully integrated “Best Practice” SAP ERP and CRM business processes and business intelligence solutions, as part of the G3 Global ConnectedBusiness Concept.

The solution offering is a complete managed services delivery, encompassing G3 Global’s innovation in the development, configuration and application support of SAP Business All-in-One, with built-in capability to rapidly scale computing resources up or down according to business demand, as well as to implement cost-effective disaster recovery solutions and unprecedented business agility.

G3 Global has been driving for complete price transparency for a number of years and we feel we have now broken the mould by offering a price per user, fully inclusive of all licenses, hosting, support and upgrades, with an implementation timeframe of 4 – 8 weeks. This will enable our clients to derive almost immediate cost benefits from the efficiencies delivered by a highly available, functionally rich, robust, fully managed SAP solution - all the benefits enjoyed by larger enterprises, delivered within an accelerated implementation timeframe, at an affordable price point and with no additional burden on internal IT resources.

Stephen Read, Director of SME at SAP UKI said “The subscription based hosting offering enables our customers to better focus on their core business, products and services that best meet the demands of their individual markets. In turn, midsize customers can focus resources on differentiating from their competitors, executing on their growth strategies and making their businesses more transparent and sustainable. We are pleased to be partnering with G3 Global, and are confident that together, we can make a difference to organisations’ efficiencies in the media sector.”

G3 Global’s confidence in the ConnectedBusinessCloud solution is reinforced by the decision to base all of our own mission-critical ERP and CRM business processes on this solution. As Chris Gunter, CEO, G3 Global explains, “We are confident that this is the right decision for our business and will position us strongly for growth. As a mid-size company ourselves, it not only reinforces the message that SAP is not only for large organisations, but more importantly, it provides our clients with the additional confidence that we are using ConnectedBusinessCloud to run our own business.”

Robert Furnivall, Head of Channels at SAP United Kingdom & Ireland said “G3 are an important partner to SAP and it is great news that they will be implementing SAP ERP and CRM software to use internally. We are pleased to see G3 pioneering the way as they become the first partner to implement SAP in this way in the UK.”

As Andrew Borresen, Technology Director, G3 Global explains “The ConnectedBusinessCloud platform has already allowed us as a company to benefit from the best possible utilization of computing resources to run our applications, with server virtualization technologies providing the option to scale during busy periods.  In the same way, this will translate into direct cost savings for our customers, only paying for the resources they need and not having to be concerned about their own back-up sites to support their mission-critical applications. As cloud computing continues to gain momentum in the marketplace, the ability to deliver business-critical applications like SAP solutions is key to helping customers fully leverage the cloud computing concept”.

“Supporting an SAP solution landscape that anticipates peak demand can require significant computing resources which may be underutilized during normal load periods. We’re excited to provide our customers cost-effective, secure on-demand access to SAP solutions, leveraging technology that dynamically expands computing power as needed. This allows our customers to reduce their total cost of ownership and shift focus toward business innovation and driving faster solutions to their business problems, rather than managing infrastructures. We’re excited that the G3 ConnectedBusiness concept has naturally transformed into a Cloud service to offer a pre-eminent world-class cloud computing platform for business process innovation,” said Chris Gunter, CEO, G3 Global.
