SAP on Azure: the best of both worlds

sap azure delaware
Few organisations can commit to the considerable investment in capital, time and energy required to get the most from their SAP applications and workloads within their on-premise data centres. Which is why the migration of SAP to Microsoft Azure is becoming increasingly popular.

Embrace the era of IT modernisation and digital

Rising costs, new business process requirements, and increasing amounts of data can make it a challenge to run and protect mission-critical SAP business functions.

Sound familiar? Then tap into the power of the cloud by migrating your SAP to Microsoft Azure.

By hosting your SAP systems in Azure, Microsoft’s secure and cutting-edge cloud technology, you will be able to reduce costs, ensure business continuity, enhance flexibility, improve agility, and streamline data analysis.

Don’t fall behind

If you don’t take steps to improve business operations, your competitors surely will. And that won’t be good for your business.

Dimitri De Rooze, Manager of IT and Procurement at Zorgbedrijf Antwerpen, has already begun to reap the benefits that come from hosting SAP in Azure:

“The Microsoft Azure platform provides us the scalability, security, and level of services needed to confidently and effectively run our most demanding applications in the cloud. It allows us to grow our business by building on the cutting-edge technology of both SAP and Microsoft.”
