Lemongrass Consulting, a UK based SAP Technology specialist, SAP Service Partner and AWS Reseller has been confirmed by Amazon as one of the first ‘Standard Consulting Partners’ uniquely combining expertise in SAP Technical Deployment with Deployment on the Amazon Public Cloud.

Manchester, 19th November 2012.

Lemongrass Consulting has been awarded the Standard Consulting Partner designation from Amazon following two years’ work in delivering SAP-on-the-Cloud solutions on the AWS platform to customers in the UK and Europe. One of the first partners to meet the requirements for APN certification, Lemongrass will be delivering additional SAP solutions which are based on the AWS platform.

Walter Beek, MD of Lemongrass Consulting Ltd says “I am delighted. This is in recognition of the excellent work we have done in delivering SAP-on-the-Cloud solutions using AWS undertaken for both SAP Partners and Customers during the previous two years. What is really exciting for us is that this has coincided with the announcement that SAP have now granted full production certification for AWS, meaning that all SAP customers can now benefit from running their production systems on the proven Amazon platform: this should give tremendous cost benefits”.

Amazon announced on November 15th (Seattle – Business Wire) that SAP Business Suite software is now certified by SAP to run in production on the AWS Cloud. These products include the SAP Enterprise Resource Planning (SAP ERP), SAP Customer Relationship Management (SAP CRM), SAP Product Lifecycle Management (SAP PLM), SAP Supply Chain Management (SAP SCM) and SAP Supplier Relationship Management (SAP SRM) applications. Enterprises running SAP Business Suite can now leverage the on-demand, pay-as-you-go AWS platform to support thousands of concurrent users in production without making costly capital expenditures for their underlying infrastructure. SAP Business Suite certified for use on AWS follows the announcement made last month that the SAP HANA One platform is certified for production use on AWS and available on AWS Marketplace.

Beek continues, “Lemongrass Consulting has invested in delivering solutions based on the Cloud; it is something we are passionate about and these announcements further supports our strategy and belief in delivering valuable, cost effective solutions to our customer base. Last month we went live with our first cloud-based mobile application, delivering workflow approvals, via the cloud, to 200 managers for PO approvals. We already have our second customer using mobile holiday approvals in test phase. Enabling customers to benefit from running their complete SAP landscape on the AWS cloud solution will be a significant step in reducing the costs of running SAP for many companies”.

Lemongrass will be demonstrating SAP running on Amazon and their cloud-based mobile applications (MiApproval and MiFieldService) at the SAP UK and Ireland User Group Conference at Manchester Central, 18th – 20th November 2012.
