SAP and Microsoft bring S/4 HANA to Azure

SAP and Microsoft bring S/4 HANA to Azure
However, he warned that Microsoft and SAP still need to show they can deliver on customer traction, value and success. The companies will deploy each other's cloud solutions internally, and encourage joint support services to run SAP software on Azure cloud services.
The offering will allow both companies customers to run the SAP S/4HANA suite of enterprise resource planning applications on a secure and managed cloud. Microsoft said it will use SAP S/4HANA on Azure to track its internal finances, and SAP will do the same for its own operations.
More enterprises are moving key systems to the cloud to realize the benefits of digital transformation, including streamlined operations and new business models. According to research firm Gartner, two-thirds of all business leaders believe that their companies must pick up the pace of digitalization to remain competitive.
At the time of that announcement, Microsoft said it was working with SAP to make Azure a deployment option for the SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud, a private managed cloud service built around S/4HANA.
Microsoft has roped in business-software vendor SAP as a cloud partner, its latest effort at using alliances to challenge Amazon's dominance in the fast-growing business segment, the Wall Street Journal reports. "Together, we will help companies win the customer-driven growth revolution". Additionally, SAP agreed to run its HANA in-memory database on Azure. SAP S/4HANA is an ERP system designed for large enterprises.
Microsoft's FAQ page says organizations now using SAP's software can move their licenses to Azure. This includes the SAP S/4HANA software supporting Concur, an SAP company.
Microsoft and SAP said they will document their internal projects to help customers launch SAP applications.
This new agreement covers internal software development running within the cloud, as well as the ability to reach customers that use both Microsoft and SAP software.
Microsoft announced in 2014 a string of SAP's core business applications would be certificated on Azure. The companies share customers such Coca-Cola Company, Columbia Sportswear Company and Costco Wholesale Group. This step is a part of their plans of producing cloud based products together for the mutual customers.
Over the past several years, Microsoft and SAP have made lots of partnership commitments.
Microsoft isn't the only major cloud provider touting its partner ecosystem this week.
