The 6 Reasons why choosing SAP on Azure

If you are considering to move your SAP workloads to a scalable and flexible environment, hosting SAP on Microsoft Azure is a very compelling solution. It is the perfect match that makes perfect sense. Both for companies that plan on running an ECC system for the next few years, and for businesses that are moving to SAP S/4HANA in the near future.

Picking the right technology and providers

A move to the cloud should be part of a long-term vision regarding your SAP infrastructure. Therefore, it is crucial to assess your business-specific requirements and determine how your cloud strategy can align with these requirements. An important part of your strategy is the choice of providers.

The right moment for the right solution

The debut of SAP HANA, SAP’s in memory database technology, brings powerful momentum for innovation and for rethinking your organization’s SAP infrastructure. Microsoft Azure offers a combination of virtualized machines and purpose-built hardware for SAP HANA systems. This hybrid capability allows your organization to prepare for the eventual, comprehensive shift of your entire IT landscape to the cloud supporting SAP Production and Non-production systems.

Businesses that have not yet migrated from traditional databases “AnyDB” to HANA also have a lot to gain by exploring the capabilities of running SAP on Microsoft Azure. For example, SAP’s Cloud Application Library makes it incredibly simple to set up demo environments, and the pay-as-you-go cloud model can enable cost reduction for sandbox, development and testing systems. These systems can now be provided in a matter of days, where on-premise installations usually took weeks.
