SAP partners with Microsoft for cloud migration offerings


SAP and Microsoft have inked a go-to-market partnership — from conceptualization to sales — to accelerate customer adoption of SAP S/4HANA and the SAP Cloud Platform on Microsoft Azure; the two companies said on Monday. The partnership is part of the Embrace project; a collaboration initiative announced by SAP earlier this year.

As part of the agreement, Microsoft will re-sell components of SAP Cloud Platform alongside Azure. Customers will also see a implified move from on-premise editions of SAP ERP to SAP S/4HANA. Designed in collaboration with SAP, Microsoft and system integrator partners will provide road maps to the digital enterprise with recommended solutions and reference architectures for customers as well, said the companies in a statement.
