Why did SAP migrate to Azure Cloud?

  • Is SAP compatible with Microsoft?

    SAP has been working with Microsoft for 20 years and announced in January 2021 a wide-ranging expansion of their cloud partnership to automate the migration and operation of SAP S/4HANA on Azure, thereby improving the efficiency of ERP on the cloud.
  • What about cyber security of uploaded data?

    Azure has 3,500 cyber security experts, giving you the most stable cyber security backing in the industry. In addition to keeping you in the loop about your cyber security, it also generates cyber security reports anytime you need to verify your company's data security and compliance.
  • What additional features can I get with Azure?

    If your company uses Microsoft Office, with Azure Cloud you can integrate Microsoft 365, Microsoft Teams, and Office with SAP to improve your workflow and enhance your user experience!
  • Will the investment in deploying data on the cloud offer a return?

    A commissioned study by Forrester Consulting TEI indicates that organizations can achieve a 3-year ROI of more than 100% by moving their outdated SAP infrastructure to Azure, and the investment will pay for itself within nine months. Enterprise clients, for instance, can save 40% in the total cost of ownership over 5 years!
  • Can I only migrate parts of my data to the cloud?

Significant benefits of SAP on Azure for businesses


Save management costs and increase operational efficiency

SAP on Azure will significantly reduce the infrastructure costs of development and testing for businesses, saving about 40% of the total 5-year cost of ownership compared to a local deployment. Backup and disaster recovery can also be performed through Azure's built-in services, simplifying management and increasing operational efficiency.

More agile system deployment and more flexible expansion

Compared to the past, when it took businesses about 2 weeks to set up an SAP system environment, cloudification only takes 2 hours via Azure. If needed, it is easy to upgrade the performance of on-demand virtual machines in no time without waiting for the hardware to be ready.

The cloud as enterprise data center, accelerating application innovation

As businesses expand, management systems for human resources and product lifecycles will continue to migrate to the cloud in the future. Value-added applications on the SAP Cloud Platform and Azure allow businesses to be on top of global supply chain progress, promoting production and intelligent customer service.
