The «SAP New Work» SAP on Azure assessment was developed in consultation with Microsoft. The aim is to analyze a business' current SAP system landscape and illustrate what an SAP workload migration to the Microsoft Azure cloud would involve. It comprises an analysis of the relevant IT infrastructure, taking the applications, usage, processes and data into account.
The assessment is ideally suited to businesses that run local SAP solutions on Windows or Linux with MS SQL, SAP Sybase ASE, IBM DB2, SAP HANA, S/4 HANA or Oracle databases.
The assessment provides you with the information you need before you decide whether to transition your SAP systems. This information takes your requirements into account for ultimately providing the SAP workload in Microsoft Azure.
How you'd benefit: We can use the analysis as a basis for recommending how to optimize guidelines and processes to make it easier for you to implement your digital transformation.
You will learn in detail how you can run your current SAP landscape securely on the Microsoft Azure public cloud.
We will identify the potential configuration of the SAP resources required.
You will see the synergies that the combination of Microsoft 365 New Work and SAP on Azure could offer your business.
We will highlight potential operating models in terms of services and consumption.
You will be able to share ideas with clients who have already undergone the transition, or are currently in the process of transitioning, and benefit from their experience.
We also offer a proof of concept of SAP on Azure as an option.
