SAP-Qualified Partner Solutions Drive Instant Value for Customers
itelligence AG, an international full-service provider of SAP® solutions, today announced its strategic decision to collaborate with Amazon Web Services (AWS) in its global operations with the aim of bringing customers solutions to migrate, implement, monitor, manage and optimize workloads running on the SAP HANA® platform, SAP Hybris® Commerce and SAP S/4HANA® on AWS.
The joint itelligence and AWS solutions include complete migrations of SAP S/4HANA and other SAP solutions to AWS and fully managed services by itelligence on AWS. As a starting point and for special scenarios, proofs of concepts on any SAP solution with AWS services are available.
Norbert Rotter, President and CEO of itelligence AG and NTT DATA Business Solutions: “Companies are being challenged to take the lead when it comes to digitalizing their business and are looking for reliable methods to migrate their workloads running in SAP software to public and hybrid cloud solutions. Our focus on SAP software, including SAP S/4HANA migrations and managed cloud solutions, along with our work with AWS, supports faster deployments to the cloud and helps accelerate customers’ digital transformations.”
The solutions will enable clients to seamlessly integrate AWS services into their strategy for running SAP software and run end-to-end managed services for SAP S/4HANA on AWS. For web-focused eCommerce platforms like SAP Hybris Commerce, itelligence and AWS provide a joint solution with increased flexibility. Options of packaged proofs of concepts and smooth switching between itelligence and AWS enable customers to quickly see their future state and to free up valuable resources to focus on innovation.
Lars Janitz, Executive Vice President, Head of Global Managed Services at itelligence AG: “With the ever-increasing relevance of SAP S/4HANA in both public and hybrid cloud solutions, our clients are expecting secure, hybrid, hyperscale solutions. This exciting collaboration between itelligence and AWS joins hyperscale cloud capabilities and expertise in SAP S/4HANA. itelligence brings full end-to-end managed services for SAP S/4HANA on AWS.”
Additionally, itelligence is standardizing on AWS for business continuity/disaster recovery (DR) strategy. This enables customers to use AWS to mitigate their disaster risk for workloads running on SAP software inside their data centers with full support from itelligence. At the same time, itelligence can provide additional DR capabilities, combined with its own data center services, in more countries.
Bas Kamphuis, General Manager, Amazon Web Services, Inc.: “We are very excited to see our relationship with itelligence develop to the state that it is today. Thousands of customers have benefitted from the itelligence deep expertise and customer outcome–based focus for decades. Customers are now able to leverage these itelligence strengths and assets to help them accelerate their journey to a digital enterprise on AWS.”
