Microsoft, SAP Expand Cloud Computing Partnership

Microsoft and SAP both commit to running SAP HANA on Azure internally Microsoft, SAP Expand Cloud Computing Partnership

Running SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud on Microsoft Azure will allow customers to run SAP S/4HANA in a secure, managed cloud, the release noted.

Microsoft will move the SAP applications it runs in its own data centers to SAP's cloud-based S/4 HANA products. Finally, SAP Ariba is now utilizing Azure and is exploring further use within its procurement applications. However, Microsoft Premier Support doesn't help with the design and development of applications on Azure. "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". The two companies also plan to use each other's applications internally, reports Enterprise Cloud News (Banking Technology's sister publication). Two-thirds of business leaders believe that their companies must speed up digitalization to remain competitive, according to research from Gartner cited in the release.

Recently announced, Microsoft and leading application management software company SAP have partnered to give enterprise customers a cloud solution that is both expansive in flexibility as well as robust in product support. "Together, we will help companies win the customer-driven growth revolution". In keeping with Nadella's theme of bringing artificial intelligence (AI) to all aspects of the business, Microsoft plans to connect its S/4HANA software to Azure AI and other analytics services to improve the internal financial reporting process. "Microsoft and SAP both benefit because they have an overlap of enterprise customers", said Puranik in an email remarks sent to eWEEK. SAP said it will run more than a dozen of its business-critical systems on Microsoft's Azure cloud platform. This includes the SAP S/4HANA software supporting Concur, an SAP company. By the same token, SAP agreed to run its HANA database software on Azure. Azure Location Based Services are integrated directly into Azure, enabling enterprise customers to add Location Based Services to their existing Azure cloud solutions with the assurance that it meets Azure's world-class standards of privacy, compliance, scalability, management and simplicity.

"Our partnership with Microsoft and SAP is essential to us continuing to deliver on that commitment".

A deeper partnership with SAP could open a new path for big corporate customers to use Azure, according to industry analysts. Parts of the website may not work as expected without them.
