As SAP enterprises face a quickly evolving market, challenges in meeting digital transformation needs, and potentially costly migrations to SAP S/4HANA, Pillir announces the launch of EdgeReady Cloud. The solution is a rapid application development platform designed to help SAP-centric companies cost-effectively accelerate ERP modernization. Built for global enterprises, including users of SAP, Oracle, Salesforce, Microsoft Dynamics, and others, EdgeReady Cloud enables organizations to quickly modernize their business processes at their own pace, bringing low-code/no-code programming to complex enterprise IT environments.
Enterprises in the current climate are challenged by changing business requirements, including the need for companies to migrate their applications to cloud or hybrid infrastructures. These pressures, combined with requirements to upgrade their ERP systems, are two of the top drivers of the modernization of business processes. According to an ASUG SAP users group survey, only 33 percent of SAP companies have migrated to SAP S/4HANA thus far. EdgeReady Cloud gives enterprises a new option to maintain much of their legacy business logic and processes while modernizing and digitizing them, as opposed to conducting a lengthy and expensive overall transformation and recreating their business processes from scratch, allowing them to focus on creating effective experiences at the end-user level.
Sold via a cost-effective, consumption-based pricing model, the platform helps ERP customers quickly modernize with less potential disruption, delivering more seamless, agile, and productive business processes to help companies meet the evolving needs of the current market. EdgeReady Cloud allows enterprises to:
- Automatically modernize enterprises legacy business processes, converting them to modern, cloud-native web and mobile applications, maintaining an organization’s business logic and reducing the need for change management. EdgeReady Cloud is the first solution in the market to accomplish this.
- Modernize and create new business processes in hours or days, as opposed to months or years.
- Separate the application layer from the SAP core, making their existing SAP system more secure, easier to maintain and migrate.
- Create applications using a low-code/no-code, drag-and-drop “Scratch”-like solution, requiring minimal training and allowing traditional IT to collaborate with line-of-business citizen developers in the design and development process.
- Automatically convert SAP ABAP (Advanced Business Application Programming) non-core customizations into cloud-native, low-code/no-code objects.
Pillir has helped household-name companies accelerate their digital transformation with EdgeReady Cloud, including major retail company Payless. “Pillir’s EdgeReady Cloud platform helped us rapidly modernize our applications, facilitating greater productivity,” said Mario Lozada, CIO from Payless. “We’re glad to have been an early adopter of this unique platform. It has delivered new efficiencies and agility to our operations through updated applications, allowing us to innovate and customize at lower risk and with less technical expertise.”
“At Pillir, we’ve observed a market dilemma. Enterprises are under intense pressure to deliver on the promise of digital transformation, but are hindered by complex legacy ERPs, physical risks, and prohibitive costs,” said Vaidya Aiyer, Pillir’s CEO and founder. He notes that large, global enterprises maintain complicated processes and operations that haven’t lent themselves to simple modernization until now. “EdgeReady Cloud provides that crucial, affordable, incremental path to modernization. With rapid, low-code application development, organizations will see immediate, tangible benefits in mere weeks, while maintaining a ‘clean’ core for their SAP infrastructures.”
