The Power of SUSE
Enterprise Server, SAP
and IBM
Discover the affordable, scalable answer to your
specific business needs. Few areas are more
mission-critical to your growing business than
your SAP solution. Together, IBM and Novell are
helping customers cost-effectively deploy SAP
solutions to achieve a robust, scalable, complete
system optimised for the SAP environment.
Tailored to the Requirements
of Emerging Businesses
Whether established incumbents or emerging
players, today’s companies need efficient,
streamlined processes, easy access to
vital facts and figures and systems flexible
enough to adapt and grow with changing
needs. But the solutions that deliver these
benefits often strain IT budgets. For emerg-
ing businesses, in particular—those with
limited time, IT personnel and finances—
the power of enterprise-class solutions has
often seemed tantalisingly out of reach.
Now, a customer-focused solution from IBM,
Novell and SAP is changing that perception.
We have combined some of our core
enterprise-class technologies, including SAP
Business All-In-One
, IBM DB2 and SUSE
Linux Enterprise Server, to give you the power
and scalability you need at a price you can
afford.It is a solution that allows SAP cus-
tomers to take advantage of the industry-
leading benefits of both SUSE Linux Enterprise
Server and IBM DB2 9. SUSE Linux Enterprise
Server from Novell
is the premier Linux
platform, delivering superior performance at
a reasonable cost for businesses of all sizes.
IBM DB2 complements this Linux server
with a powerful and scalable database—
optimised especially for SAP customers—
that delivers unparalleled integration and
a lower total cost of ownership (TCO).
Take Advantage of
Industry-leading Benefits
Running SAP on SUSE Linux Enterprise
Server gives you the performance, reliability
and scalability you need from your mission-
critical SAP applications. The combination
of SUSE Linux Enterprise Server and IBM
DB2 provides a robust infrastructure to help
small and medium business (SMB) custom-
ers deploy SAP solutions cost effectively.
As an integrated solution, it accelerates return
on investment (ROI), reduces spending and
simplifies operations without sacrificing
reliability or performance.
