Microsoft And SAP Expand Partnership With Combined Cloud Services

Microsoft and SAP both commit to running SAP HANA on Azure internally

The companies will deploy each other's cloud solutions internally, and encourage joint support services to run SAP software on Azure cloud services.

Microsoft will move the SAP applications it runs in its own data centers to SAP's cloud-based S/4 HANA products. Moreover, SAB Ariba is in the process of leveraging Azure and exploring usage within its procurement applications.

They also note that companies are increasingly moving business systems to the cloud. According to research firm Gartner, two-thirds of all business leaders believe that their companies must pick up the pace of digitalization to remain competitive.

Business software giants Microsoft Corp and SAP SE have agreed to expand the use of each other's cloud-based products and services delivered via the internet, they said on Tuesday, as they laid out a common product road map for joint customers. "Azure is a truly global infrastructure that is flexible, scalable and developer-friendly and it has helped us to better serve our customers".

Fortunately, there is a simple fix for this until Apple patches this inexplicable bug: Change the root account's password now. And, as most security experts would attest, physical access will eventually trump any logical security you may have in place.

The companies have been working to run SAP business software on Azure for a number of years. Microsoft is transforming its internal systems - which include legacy SAP finance applications, and will implement the SAP S/4HANA Finance solution running on Azure.

Meanwhile, Microsoft said it's also planning to "connect SAP S/4HANA to Azure AI and analytics services" in order to drive more efficient financial reporting.

Microsoft and SAP said they will document their internal projects to help customers launch SAP applications. By the same token, SAP agreed to run its HANA database software on Azure.

Under the partnership, SAP and Microsoft provide support for their respective products and services.
