Microsoft, SAP Partner To Increase Azure Migrations

SAP, a major player in the enterprise application software space, is partnering with Microsoft in a bid to entice more customers to move their on-premises implementations to the Azure cloud.

Dubbed "Project Embrace," the partnership targets customers using SAP ERP (enterprise resource planning) and SAP S/4HANA, an ERP product optimized for the company's in-memory HANA database.

According to the announcement, the partnership's benefits include:

  • A simplified move from on-premise editions of SAP ERP to SAP S/4HANA for customers with integrated product and industry solutions.
  • A collaborative support model for simplified resolution for Azure and SAP Cloud Platform to ease migration and improve communication.
  • Microsoft and system integrator partners will provide roadmaps to the digital enterprise with recommended solutions and reference architectures for customers.

"SAP will lead with Microsoft Azure to move on-premise SAP ERP and SAP S/4HANA customers to the cloud through industry-specific best practices, reference architectures and cloud-delivered services," SAP said. "This includes future deployment and migration of existing direct SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud customers leveraging hyperscaler infrastructure."
