New guide outlines the key benefits of migrating on-premise SAP infrastructure to Amazon AWS to reduce costs, improve security and benefit from increased reliability
An increasing number of SAP-based enterprises are looking to gain more efficiency and security through deploying their infrastructure to Amazon Web Services (AWS) for the cloud. Amazon is one of the world’s largest and most trusted cloud providers, and more than 5,000 organizations currently run their SAP services on AWS.
Protera’s world leading expertise in AWS cloud migration means that more and more enterprises are looking to the company to help with their migration and deployment plans. Running SAP on AWS cloud provides a number of key benefits.
These include outsourcing the headache of maintenance and vital upgrades to the cloud provider, as well as the improved security and reliability that comes from using a global powerhouse like Amazon AWS as a host.
The new guide from Protera provides information on the main issues clients face when considering a SAP migration, and looks at the top deployment methods used by enterprise customers. As well as looking at the why, the guide also investigates the top models for migration, and examines the implications of software upgrades which may be needed after a ‘lift and shift’ modernization.
Each organization has different needs and the guide also offers pointers on how valuable it is to partner with a cloud expert like Protera to ensure proper planning and execution, thus saving both time and money in the process.
The guidelines also include a set of three real-world case studies, which demonstrate the benefits of moving to a powerful, scalable and robust platform like AWS. One notable example is Merrifield Garden Center which has successfully run its SAP operations on AWS for over ten years, with the support of Protera’s expert migration and management team.
“We have reduced month-end close by 30% and achieved a 75% performance improvement in our purchase order productivity,” says Lynn Warhurst, CFO of Merrifield, “If I could give one piece of advice to those considering cloud- don’t be afraid.”
For over 20 years, Protera’s mission has been to empower enterprises to achieve their modernization objectives with improved value, increased quality, and reduced risk.
