Microsoft, SAP Strengthen Ties With Mobile, Data, Cloud Partnership
Microsoft and SAP are two old-school enterprise vendors that have been partnering for almost 20 years, and this week their partnership is taking a pronounced leap into the future as they come together around cloud, mobile and big data products.
To that end, the partnership involves 3 parts:
SAP plans to run several of its key cloud services on Microsoft’s Azure platform including SAP Business Suite software, SAP Business All-In-One solution, SAP Mobile Platform, SAP Adaptive Server Enterprise (SAP ASE) and the developer edition of the SAP HANA platform.
The idea says Microsoft’s Takeshi Numoto, Corporate Vice President of Cloud and Enterprise Marketing, is to provide a platform to run these applications and build new ones to give SAP customers the unlimited cloud resources that Azure can provide.
“We take the complexity away and help them take advantage of the flexibility and agility that cloud can provide,” Numoto explained.
