CHARLOTTE, NC--(Marketwired - Nov 3, 2015) - Velocity Technology Solutions today announced that it is now an SAP-certified provider of cloud services for SAP® solutions. The SAP certification acknowledges that Velocity has the capability to deliver high-quality cloud services for running SAP solutions, and is the most recent certification the company has received from SAP. Velocity also maintains SAP certifications in hosting and application management services, and offers partner managed cloud.

"SAP is a key software platform for our business, and that part of our business is growing rapidly," said Ralf Suerken, vice president of the SAP line of business for Velocity Technology Solutions. "SAP's certification of our company reflects our ability to deliver hosting services with high-quality operational standards. Companies relying on Velocity for cloud, hosting and application management services for their applications can benefit from reduced operational expenses and the ability to focus on the business value of their solutions rather than on infrastructure and application management."

Keith Angell, Velocity's CEO, further explained, "To achieve this certification from SAP, Velocity's IT service management processes, security measures, facilities set-up, experience in SAP operations, and staff went through extensive review by SAP. This review served to validate operations, service and support of SAP applications to help ensure compliance with SAP's requirements for quality, availability and security. With this certification, customers and prospects can be confident that Velocity can deliver a broad portfolio of IT services related to SAP applications."

To further ensure ongoing high standards for the management of SAP solutions, SAP-certified providers of cloud services for SAP solutions undergo a rigorous assessment of their delivery and support capabilities every two years by SAP's outsourcing partner certification group.
