SAP Taps Azure for Customer On-Premises-to-Cloud Migrations

Enterprise application software specialist SAP announced a partnership with Microsoft to move customers' on-premises implementations to the Azure cloud.

The pact targets customers using SAP ERP (enterprise resource planning) and SAP S/4HANA, an ERP product optimized for the company's in-memory HANA database.

Dubbed project Embrace, the partnership's benefits are said to include:

  • A simplified move from on-premises editions of SAP ERP to SAP S/4HANA for customers with integrated product and industry solutions.
  • A collaborative support model for simplified resolution for Azure and SAP Cloud Platform to ease migration and improve communication.
  • Microsoft and system integrator partners will provide roadmaps to the digital enterprise with recommended solutions and reference architectures for customers.

"SAP will lead with Microsoft Azure to move on-premises SAP ERP and SAP S/4HANA customers to the cloud through industry-specific best practices, reference architectures and cloud-delivered services," SAP said. "This includes future deployment and migration of existing direct SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud customers leveraging hyperscaler infrastructure."
