Hyperscale compute is defined by four very important key words that deliver significant benefits to the enterprise: scalability, flexibility, elasticity, and cost. The big name hyperscalers like Microsoft Azure, AWS and Google offer impressive quantities of each of these qualities, and allow for organisations to evolve infrastructure, operations and approaches on demand and in alignment with strategic imperatives.
It also means that they can leverage the capabilities of their SAP systems and applications within these hyperscalers – if they migrate properly and if they take advantage of the endless benefits offered by SAP S/4HANA. SAP S/4HANA allows for organisations to neatly deploy into the public cloud using the hyperscaler of preference while tidily reaping the rewards, and the results of this strategy are clearly paying off.
The benefits of SAP S/4HANA migration
Taking advantage of SAP and SAP S/4HANA’s ability to smoothly migrate over to Azure, Google or AWS, companies can:
- Leverage scalability of the cloud by being able to right-size your systems for what you use now and not pay upfront for a system that you’ll only need down the line. This massively simplifies migration from legacy infrastructure and opens the door for companies to create digitally transformed and enabled enterprises.
- Enjoy comprehensive business transformation that’s defined by simplicity, ease of use and accessibility. With SAP S/4HANA on hyperscale cloud, companies can move away from complicated and convoluted IT infrastructure, reducing costs while improving operational capacity.
- Take the weight from on-prem to the cloud. The benefit of this will only really be felt with the right SAP hyperscale migration strategy and approach, however, as there is no one size fits all. To truly see the cost, scale and flexibility benefits, the move has to be carefully planned and meticulously managed.
- Stick with what they know, for now. If a company wants to run SAP without upgrading to SAP S/4HANA right now, they can adapt their move to suit their plans. Then, once they’ve moved primary systems and customised applications across to the cloud, they can incrementally roll out SAP S/4HANA systems as required.
SAP migration on hyperscaler: finding the right pathway
Whether you’re moving your SAP or your SAP S/4HANA workloads to a hyperscaler, you need to plan for the migration meticulously to ensure that risks are minimised and costs and systems optimised. It’s worth working with a trusted SAP migration to hyperscaler partner to set out the parameters of your migration and your expectations. ETZ Global will collaborate with you to define your requirements, evaluate your preferred hyperscale provider, and use our S/4 HANA Migration Primer Service (MPS) to help you make the move intelligently. We help you with a SAP Readiness check and provide you with visibility into your existing SAP implementation so you have clarity into the right methodology for your move, and can build a roadmap that makes sense.
We will help you get the value you wanted from your SAP migration to hyperscale cloud, and we will partner with you to ensure that this value is sustainable and measurable.
