Microsoft Inks Deal To Support SAP ERP on Azure

To help existing on-premises VMware workloads move to Azure Cloud, Microsoft on Monday announced new migration offerings for customers as additional solutions. The offering will allow both companies customers to run the SAP S/4HANA suite of enterprise resource planning applications on a secure and managed cloud.

Microsoft said it will use SAP's S/4 HANA database to help run its internal finance processes, replacing older SAP software. "Building on our longtime partnership, Microsoft and SAP are harnessing each other's products to not only power our own organizations, but to empower our enterprise customers to run their most mission-critical applications and workloads with SAP S/4HANA on Azure". For customers of Microsoft Premier Support, "SAP is able to engage Microsoft on behalf of the customer", per the FAQ.

Perhaps, as a show of good faith or a bit of dogfooding, both SAP and Microsoft Azure will internally fuse their respective solutions, the result should be the better guidance of reps when presenting architecture integration and deployment options for both SAP and Azure solutions. "For instance, a department of transportation can now use Azure Location Based Services to analyze and improve traffic in congested cities, freight companies can provide improved fleet management and logistics, and all businesses can track the location of assets and be notified when their location changes". Microsoft also plans to connect SAP S/4HANA to Azure AI and analytics services for more efficient financial reporting and more powerful decision-making. "The value of aligned engineering, sales and delivery between these two strategic partners will allow our system to accelerate our digital agenda. We're excited to collaborate with Cubic Telecom to explore opportunities with a focus on maximizing the many benefits for the automotive ecosystem".

"We chose to partner with Microsoft because it has expertise in scaling globally with enterprise customers and shares a joint vision with TomTom to make location a fundamental aspect of the cloud", said Anders Truelsen, managing director of BU Licensing at TomTom.

A deeper partnership with SAP could open a new path for big corporate customers to use Azure, according to industry analysts. "The Microsoft and SAP alliance provides us with the assurance we need for our innovation in the cloud". They also are working on co-marketing efforts.

Digital Innovation Conclave was hosted to bring out the importance of a public-private partnership.
