Several years ago, Gartner(*) already predicted the cloud industry growing faster than ever. Analysts stated that by next year (2019), 30% of the 100 largest vendors’ new software investments will have shifted from cloud-first to cloud-only. Last year, SAP announced they’ve extended their long running partnership with Microsoft, and will place their SAP HANA onto the Microsoft Azure cloud platform.
SAP customers can’t lag behind in following these cloud revolutions if they want to stay ahead of the competition. Gartner mentions that “by 2020, a corporate "no-cloud" policy will be as rare as a "no-internet" policy is today”. So, in fact, the question for IT leaders becomes not if they will move to the cloud, but when, and to which one.
