The multinational software corporation SAP recently reached an agreement with Microsoft for migration to the cloud. The three-year partnership is referred to as “Embrace” and it’s meant to assist clients to run business operations with the help of remote servers by SAP’s flagship S/4HANA database. Moving the data to the cloud is a measure to solve common customer complaints, not to mention streamline their journeys. Complexity will be reduced and costs will be minimized my making the transition to SAP S/4HANA Cloud.

Attention needs to be paid to the fact that SAP will continue to collaborate with important names in the industry, such as Google and Amazon. The choice is determined based on the needs of customers who run either SAP or AWS. They are the only ones who take advantage of the benefit, so it seems only normal that the software and technology solutions company concentrates on making customers happy.
What SAP wants to is:

The pre-integrated solution that enables interoperability with SAP.
When SAP will move to the cloud, customers will have access to unlimited resources, numerous data centers being available in each geographical region.

This matters for an organization that employs thousands of workers and needs a strong cloud migration strategy.
