SAP AG Certifies Verizon's Computing-as-a-Service

SAP AG has certified Verizon Business' cloud-based on-demand Computing as a Service, or CaaS, platform for the delivery of SAP business applications. Verizon Business is the first global provider to receive SAP certification of its cloud services.

As a SAP-certified provider of cloud services, Verizon Business will provide support of the entire SAP solution portfolio, including business software applications for customer relationship management, enterprise resource planning, product lifecycle, supply chain and corporate services.

To achieve this designation, Verizon's CaaS infrastructure went through extensive testing to validate the operational integration of the cloud-computing platform with supported applications, including portal linkages, support flows and automated service management processes enabled by e-bonding, or direct system-to-system connections between Verizon CaaS and solutions in use at end-user companies. The audit also included a technical review of the physical and logical security processes supporting Verizon CaaS, as well as its portal and underlying infrastructure including servers, software and storage capabilities.
