The digital economy is developing rapidly worldwide. It is the single most important driver of innovation, competitiveness and growth, and it holds huge potential for small and medium-sized enterprises. One of the elements of Transforming to a Digital economy is "Cloud".
The Cloud eliminates the investments for costly hardware, such as hard drives and servers – and gives users the ability to work from anywhere. The several cloud technologies are offered in a public, private, or Hybrid Cloud environment.
Nowadays, companies can choose from an entire portfolio of cloud-based IT services. SAP is also transforming their landscape to a Hybrid Cloud architecture, driven by SAP HANA in-memory technology. They offer cloud apps (SaaS) for all lines of business -e.g., to support customer and sales management (C4C), finance or procurement, HR, etc... The second option is SAP HCP (PaaS), to build, run, and extend ultra-modern business applications in the Cloud. And the third option is a flexible on-demand infrastructure (IaaS).
Also other worldwide Cloud providers like Microsoft, invested last years in a hybrid Cloud Architecture, which can be even more interesting and cost efficient for customers that wants to include their non-SAP and S/4HANA applications into the same cloud as well. You can easily integrate SAP HCP in this Architecture.
We see a lot of differences in offerings between Cloud providers. Based on our knowledge and experiences and reference cases, we support customers towards an profound Hybrid Cloud architecture.
