HANA Enterprise Cloud continues to be a primary bridge to transform customers into SAP cloud solutions leveraging HANA technology and innovation. Through this journey we have learned and documented many best practices related to HEC planning, integration and delivery. These learnings, based on empirical customer use cases, help mitigate risk and set up the deployment for success given many different types of customer scenarios and requirements. In this session we will discuss the top learnings using real world examples and customer situations. Looking not only at what it takes to ensure HEC success, but also where have we had challenges and how we have aligned best practices to ensure those challenges are not replicated for future HEC customers.
