Delivering industry-leading solutions & managed services to amplify infrastructure performance with SAP on Azure

Depending on the technology landscape requirements, the cloud migration is performed. SAP systems can be migrated from cloud to cloud/on-prem to cloud environments, respectively. We have listed 4 approaches for cloud migration as below:

Lift and Shift to Azure Cloud • The existing OS, DB and SAP Application versions are retained. All of them are compatible on Azure • This is normally referred to as an SAP Homogeneous System Copy and is the simplest type of cloud migration • A lift-and-shift is a common method for enterprises to move to the cloud Lift and Migrate to Azure Cloud • OS and DB versions are not retained. This option is applicable where the existing OS is not supported by SAP or there is a desire to change the DB • This is normally referred to as SAP Heterogeneous System Copy • There is a well-proven path using tools such as SAP R3load or the SAP Database Migration Option (DMO) of the Software Update Manager (SUM) where the target DB is SAP HAN Lift and Upgrade/Migrate to Azure Cloud • Change of OS (SUSE or Red hat Linux) and DB (HANA) and Migrating Business Suite system ECC on Any DB to SAP on HANA • Conversion from SAP ECC to S/4HANA and Migrating BW on Any DB to BW on HANA will provide an immediate performance boost Transformation to SAP S/4HANA and Cloud • New implementations build and start afresh with a new software version of SAP S/4 HANA. • All new business processes adopted along with selected data migrations using SAP S/4HANA Migration Cockpit. • SAP S/4 HANA provides users with optimized objects and code that yields a better and improved business performance
