Alliander provides over three million customers in the Netherlands with gas and electricity. To continue operating at the forefront of one of the world's most dynamic industries and to handle future developments, Alliander needed a scalable database and stable applications. To achieve this, Alliander used the SAP HANA Cloud Migration Service to migrate to SAP HANA Cloud from SAP HANA Service on Cloud Foundry. Now, SAP HANA Cloud is a crucial part of their new application landscape.
Alliander Powers Applications with Migration to SAP HANA Cloud
As a part of their new landscape, SAP HANA Cloud is the key cloud-native database to support Alliander’s applications. These applications assist Alliander’s customer service employees in technical call centers in identifying outages and helping Alliander’s field service engineers quickly get the power back.
All these critical applications must be fast and, most importantly, stable. As the number of Alliander’s applications grow, and more people begin using them, their database needs to be able to scale as their needs change.
With SAP HANA Cloud, we can scale quickly when the number of applications we develop grows, or more people start using them. Being able to scale our database quickly without a complicated migration is a massive benefit to our business.Pieter Kruk, Product Owner Digital Core and Integration Services at Alliander
