For an organisation with hundreds of users, disparate applications, SAP modifications, several forms of integration and a system that in its basic form does still work, a move to the cloud can seem daunting.  Migrating to a cloud environment can help to improve your organisations operational speed and performance, workload scalability, and environmental security and stability.

So you have made the decision to move your SAP instance into the cloud.  Before moving your SAP workload it is critical to ensure to select the right cloud service provider to meet your organisation’s requirements.


It’s uncommon to find a business that is lucky enough to have in-house cloud and SAP experts on their payroll.  Given the steep learning curve of SAP and the cloud, it is worth considering augmenting your core IT team with experienced resources for your migration project.

Ideal migration partner:

  • Experts with in-depth knowledge of SAP operating system/database upgrades and migrations
  • Specialists who can design cloud landscapes and build-up virtual machines that optimally run SAP.
  • A solution for each aspect of your migration including integration between disparate systems.
  • Confidence navigating and troubleshooting the migration across multi-layered, parallel work streams.
  • Have a partner relationship with leading public cloud providers.
