Challenged with providing rapid real-time reporting to executives, as well as better interaction with their back-end enterprise, on-demand CRM and other applications, Soraa will adopt SAP Business Suite on HANA®.  NTT DATA’s expanded responsibilities will include identifying key opportunities aligned with technology and business strategies, building a solid roadmap, and migration implementation services to move Soraa’s current SAP Business All-in-One enterprise application from its existing Sybase database to SAP Business Suite on HANA powered by SAP HANA®.   This marks the first partner-driven sale of Business Suite on HANA license by NTT DATA.
