MainOne’s Data Centre attains SAP certification

MainOne has said its data centre subsidiary, MDXi, is now a SAP-certified provider of infrastructure services for SAP solutions.

This new certification confirms the ability of the company to deliver high-quality cloud and infrastructure operations services for customers running SAP solutions and recognises the company as the region’s first SAP-certified data centre.

The certification will enable MDXi to host and manage SAP applications utilising the company’s enterprise cloud platforms, across its private, public and hybrid cloud solutions, via a consumption-based delivery model.

“As a SAP-certified provider of hosting services, MDXi will offer a cost-effective yet reliable delivery model for mission-critical applications for customers of SAP.

“SAP customers that rely on MainOne’s data centre for hosting services will be empowered to focus on the business value of their solutions and benefit from reduced operational expenses that a commercial data centre provides,” MainOne said in a statement.

Receiving the certificate, the Chief Executive Officer of MainOne, FunkeOpeke, said, “We are pleased to receive the SAP certification for Infrastructure Operations Services, as it validates our commitment to providing world-class data centre and cloud solutions in Nigeria.”

She added, “With this certification from SAP, it is now possible for Nigerian enterprises and businesses to host SAP applications in-country on MDXi’s cloud platform and optimise their accounting processes, data analytics and sales chain management. This will improve response times for SAP applications, ensure data security and assure more cost-effective subscription charges.”

In his comments during the award presentation to MDXi, the Managing Director of SAP West Africa, KudzaiDanha, said, “More than ever, SAP Africa is excited about the certification of MainOne as the first Infrastructure Operations Services partner.”
