Cloud Migration and Support Models for SAP to Move Your Business Forward
(3 minute read)
Businesses are increasingly moving SAP workloads from their internal or third-party data centers to run on private or public cloud platforms. There are several reasons behind this cloud migration move. Traditional hosting services have some inherent constraints that do not lend themselves easily to a world of rapid changes and constant innovation. On the other hand, cloud providers have been successfully rolling out a variety of leading-edge services almost every week. This allows businesses to leverage the latest technologies, experiment, and innovate more rapidly than ever before.
Running SAP on Cloud Platforms Requires Expertise
Cloud migration whether public or private promises a whole new level of business innovation and speed. However, it also requires new skills, new processes, new integrations, and new tools.
Running SAP solutions on cloud platforms requires specialized technical expertise in cloud infrastructure with the ability to build, manage and monitor the virtual network, storage, and compute layers in addition to the Operating System (OS), Database (DB) and Basis administration functions.
Business is moving at a more rapid pace than ever, and technology continues to get more and more complex in order to meet the challenges. Businesses that fail to adapt and adopt run the real risk of falling behind their competitors. With the battle for talent pool getting more intense, businesses need an experienced and forwarding looking ally that can help them stay on the technology curve by bringing in these capabilities and expertise when needed.
