Today SAP announced SAP C/4HANA Foundation, its lightweight technology layer which infuses SAP C/4HANA with agility, openness and extensibility. By the end of the month SAP will onboard 1700+ SAP C/4HANA customers making it even easier for them to design and deliver amazing customer experiences.
SAP C/4HANA Foundation is built natively on Google Cloud Platform, leveraging a set of native services, augmented with SAP Cloud Platform services. Over the next few months SAP will extend its integration with other IaaS providers, as well as its own SAP Cloud Platform.
“We are proud of our collaboration with Google Cloud Platform which will bring cloud-native technologies to the doorstep of all our customers”
Thomas Hertz, Head of SAP C/4HANA Technology
In connection with today’s launch, Google will offer 100 SAP C/4HANA customers a starter package with up to $1,000 in Google Cloud Platform credits, designed to give customers a flying start with SAP C/4HANA Foundation. The credits can be used with Google Cloud Platform services like Google Kubernetes Engine cluster, needed for running the SAP C/4HANA extensions. In addition, SAP’s open–source project Kyma, the underlying technology, is now available on the Google Cloud Platform Marketplace.
Eligible customers (ie. having one or more SAP C/4HANA cloud solutions) will receive a direct invitation to participate in the campaign beginning of June, after SAP completes the onboarding process for SAP C/4HANA Foundation.
