The solution’s cloud environment will be customized by Lenovo, with support from SAP, to optimize performance and availability running SAP HANA-based applications..

Edward Chen, chief business officer, SAP Greater China, adds that the new dimension of the partnership gives China enterprises access to a powerful and highly scalable solution.
