SAP Operation Model Assessment

Are you considering choosing S/4HANA Cloud Private Edition as your future SAP ERP solution and platform? That’s a good move. Or are you still uncertain whether you should select to run SAP S/4HANA on MS Azure or AWS in a different operation model?

With our SAP operation model assessment, we can help you choose the best-fitting platform and support model for you. With a complex criteria catalog, we analyze your requirements in multiple segments with a structured methodology and compare RISE for SAP, Microsoft Azure and AWS, private cloud, and on-premise data centers. You receive a comprehensive documentation of your individual ratings and results.

Cloud Infrastructure Readiness Assessment

Your on-premise setup is a large and complex environment. With our Cloud Infrastructure Readiness Assessment, we analyze your landscape automatically and provide you a complete and optimized plan for a public cloud implementation, including a cost overview of your target landscape.

Such analysis provides you with the ideal basis for solid planning of your cloud transition.

Public Clouds provide great flexibility. That comes, however, with the challenge of constantly controlling resource utilization and costs.

We help you get an overview of your Public Cloud cost consumption and identify optimization potentials for you. In a structured approach, we analyze not only your Public Cloud cost reports and identify major cost drivers and pitfalls, but also check your Public Cloud resources and services and give advice on improvements.
