The current IT landscape is evolving more rapidly with the brand new cloud technologies and massive transformation in business processes. Approyo brings SAP solutions with years of SAP experience and unparalleled expertise. That experience is the foundation of the company and allows us to help companies of all shapes and sizes to implement these new and exciting SAP solutions.
Making SAP HANA simple for all
Approyo was established in 2012 when SAP HANA was just coming into existence. The Founder and CEO Chris Carter saw that SAP HANA is going to be a major game-changer and he decided to come out of retirement to start Approyo with the aim to help companies realize the benefits of deploying HANA in an easy and effective manner.
Chris started Approyo with the goal of making it easy for customers to embrace SAP HANA and other SAP solutions. When Chris started Approyo, he was looking for an identity, something a little different from the normal technology company. Chris saw Alice in Wonderland sitting on his bookshelf and a light bulb went off in his head:
“The leap you have to take from being an entrepreneur and the leap it takes to get customers to the new world of Big Data and SAP, it just fell into that world of Alice in Wonderland for me.”
Approyo, today, manages over 300 SAP cloud landscapes and has evolved into the leading global SAP cloud centric solution provider. The company headquarters are located in Wisconsin, and it maintains Data Centers in Columbus, OH, Atlanta, GA, Palo-Alto, CA, as well as a Latin American HQ in Sao Palo, Brazil and a European base in Brussels, Belgium.
Providing Innovation and Leadership
Christopher Carter is the CEO and Founder of Approyo. He works with businesses around the globe, assisting them in their journey to the usage of Big Data in the forms of Hadoop (Cloudera and Hortonwork’s) and SAP HANA.
Mr. Carter has been in the “Big Data” industry and the SAP industry for almost 25 years, He has been nationally recognized by The American SAP Users Group, SAP, Hadoop World, Cloud Expo and more.
The “Design-thinking” Approach
Being a customer centric organization, Approyo takes a “design thinking” approach with the customers to become a true business partner.
“We want to first understand their business needs. We start with asking “what the customer wants to accomplish” and dive deep into the business goals and dreams. Then, we look at the economic and technical feasibility to truly deliver the best possible solution for the customer. Finally, we deploy the right SAP solution for our customers and continue to provide ongoing support and services”, states Chris, the CEO.
SAP HANA and the future
The introduction of SAP HANA sparked Chris Carter to create Approyo. HANA—a big data platform—allows customers to manipulate and design the available data specific for their business needs and help gain better insights into their company’s functioning.
Built upon the premise of making SAP HANA an easy, flexible, and cost-effective on-boarding solution for companies, Approyo has developed custom-made solutions, with Ignite being one of their flagship products. Ignite encapsulates HANA’s various components into one neat and easy package, with companies having the freedom to either use the entire package or only those components fit for their specific purposes.
