VIDEO: Microsoft IT on deploying “SAP on Azure”

imageWe’ve recently been publishing a lot of information from Microsoft IT around our move to SAP on Azure. 

Microsoft runs SAP for:

  • ERP (ECC 6.0, EhP6)
  • Global Trade Services
  • Supply Chain Management
  • Master Data Governance
  • Concur
  • Success Factors
  • Integrated Business Planning

  • Ariba Business Network and Direct Sourcing, etc.

If you’re interested in hearing about the experiences of 100,000 employee company’s move to SAP-on-Azure and the benefits that have come from it:

  • Cost management (sizing system to accommodate for capacity needs during holidays, snoozing systems)
  • Agility (Creation, size up or size down, prototyping, development systems)
  • Tooling for Security & Telemetry for managing compliance & security
  • Classification of support tickets using Machine Learning to minimize turn around times & increase success rates
  • etc.

Like many companies, Microsoft uses SAP for mission-critical business functions for finance, human resources, and global trade. When it came time to move our SAP estate to the cloud we went through a process of planning and assessment prior to migration. We then focused on optimization along with management after the migration. In this video, Hans Reutter provides a first-hand account of moving SAP workloads to the cloud with Azure, and offers tips based on what we learned along the way.
