Microsoft and SAP both commit to running SAP HANA on Azure internally

Wanted More cloud partners

The companies will document these internal projects, to better offer customers guidance and enterprise architecture for the deployment of SAP applications on Azure, according to the release. For customers of Microsoft Premier Support, "SAP is able to engage Microsoft on behalf of the customer", per the FAQ. SAP is the market leader in application software management that enables businesses to find efficiencies in their everyday workloads that include back office, warehouse, storefront, internal and external program optimizations to list a few. "By building on top of Microsoft's cloud, we believe this will make our data more accessible than ever and will empower developers to use our APIs to light up mapping scenarios for both consumer and commercial customers".

The combined efforts of Microsoft and SAP already have big names such as Costco Wholesale, The Coca-Cola Company, and Columbia Sportswear Company excited at the new level of cloud integration proposed by the partnership.

And this year SAP said that its customers could run its software on AWS, as well as Azure and Google's Cloud Platform in preview.

SAP will run its private managed cloud service, SAP Hana Enterprise Cloud (SAP S/4 HANA) on Microsoft Azure and this will allow its customers to run its cloud services in a secure, managed cloud. Indeed, Microsoft announced as far back as 2014 it was working to certify some of SAP's core business applications on its cloud.

Meanwhile, Microsoft said it's also planning to "connect SAP S/4HANA to Azure AI and analytics services" in order to drive more efficient financial reporting.

Microsoft isn't the only major cloud provider touting its partner ecosystem this week. Additionally, Microsoft will deploy SAP S/4HANA on Azure to help run its own internal finance processes, and SAP will move its key internal business critical systems to Azure. This step is a part of their plans of producing cloud based products together for the mutual customers.

In addition to partnering on ERP from the cloud, Microsoft and SAP also are using each other's products. "The Microsoft and SAP alliance provides us with the assurance we need for our innovation in the cloud".

"With SAP HANA on Azure, we have the data intelligence to operate more efficiently across all aspects of our business and accelerate the delivery of finished goods to our customers", said Hizmy Hassen, chief digital and technology officer, Coats.
