Ease Your Journey to the Cloud


We all know the future is in the cloud. Whether your organization is still on-premises or has begun to adopt a hybrid approach, exploring modern, cutting-edge cloud technologies is critical to the growth of your business. But knowing it’s time to transition to the cloud and actually getting there are two entirely different things. Your business can’t afford to miss out on the dynamic shift that cloud and as-a service models have created in today’s economy, but you likely need a helping hand to make that move a reality!


SAP has spent years focused on non-stop innovation to arm customers like you with the up-to-the-moment technologies needed to pivot, adapt and thrive in these ever-changing times. We want all of our customers to be able to take full advantage of these advancements without sacrificing their trusted on-premises investments. This means establishing and integrating your on-premises solutions as part of the SAP Business Technology Platform as you transition to its portfolio of cloud solutions.


A Platform for the Future

SAP Business Technology Platform acts as an innovation engine to accelerate better business outcomes and deliver immediate value for organizations like yours. As an open business platform optimized for the SAP landscape, SAP Business Technology Platform runs across multiple hyperscaler and infrastructure environments. It provides valuable access to your organization’s core SAP business environment for unprecedented data insight and business value.


Each of the platform’s four pillars—database and data management, application development and integration, analytics, and intelligent technologies—speeds up your organization’s journey to the cloud with simplified out-of-the-box integrations, quick application development and extensions, optimized end-to-end business processes and critical data excellence.


Helping Customers MOVE Forward

There is no single right way or ultimate road map for customers to journey to the cloud, which can leave organizations feeling a bit lost during the transition. This is why SAP is putting together a series of initiatives—under the umbrella of the Business Technology Platform MOVE plan—to guide our customers along the way. Under the plan, SAP will provide guidance, processes, and best practices to help you migrate legacy SAP solutions and transition on-premises workloads to the go to cloud solutions.


Foundational guidance for extending on-premises analytics to the cloud is taking shape, with additional details and artifacts to follow in the upcoming months. Other on-premises to cloud guidance initiatives will soon follow as SAP expands the scope of on-premises solutions encompassed within SAP Business Technology Platform MOVE.


We know this is not an overnight transformation. But the close integration between the on-premises and cloud versions of SAP technologies allows you to start small and ramp-up workloads to the cloud over time. Embracing this type of hybrid approach builds a solid foundation for an entirely cloud-based future while leveraging your current investments. SAP Business Technology Platform MOVE will help you plan ahead, creating a bespoke strategy to future-proof your technical landscape—at a pace best suited for your organization.


It can be daunting to contemplate a transition of this magnitude. Know that SAP will provide the resources and guidance you need to quickly, efficiently, and cost-effectively build out your organization’s cloud capacity.
