"SAP Rapid Deployment solutions make cloud implementations a non-issue. Customers can make a business decision, explore the solution, experience a guided solution implementation and enjoy the merits of the cloud without concerns on how to best implement a new cloud solution, integrating cloud solutions from SAP with on-premise solutions or migrating to SAP Cloud powered by SAP HANA."
