Ansible and SAP HANA and S/4HANA

Accelerate and simplify your modernization with automation

If your organization relies on SAP HANA and S/4HANA for its critical business operations, downtime is not an option. Yet the complexity of manually deploying and managing an SAP environment—either on premise or in the cloud—is time-consuming and error-prone, and can lead to service degradation, increased security exposure, and outages. This can drive down your ROI, but it also distracts teams from more strategic, high-priority projects. 

Red Hat® Ansible® Automation Platform eliminates these common obstacles, with an in†uitive interface and ready-to-use, trusted content that is custom-built for SAP migrations. With Ansible Automation Platform, manual tasks that used to take days can be done in hours or even minutes. By consolidating on a single, unified platform, your teams can more easily share automation content and workflows, and scale as your organization evolves and uncovers new automation use cases.

Automation offers freedom to focus on innovation

Migrating to SAP HANA and S/4HANA is a long, complex process that is often made more challenging as many organizations simultaneously modernize and move to the cloud. Automation can be the key to compressing migration timelines, reducing costs, and simplifying your entire SAP modernization initiative. With just a few clicks, you can provision and deploy SAP HANA and S/4HANA anywhere, plus tackle ongoing, repetitive tasks such as database operations, backups, patching, firewall configuration, and much more. Ansible Automation Platform manages the entire  lifecycle from Day 0/1 planning and provisioning to ongoing Day 2 operations.
