Core systems with the right care
SAP systems are important components in your company. The volume of relevant data for enterprises is growing exponentially and is projected to reach 158 zettabyte (ZB) by 2025.
Rising system costs, declining system performance, and lack of agility to stay competitive in a cloud-based world are one of the common challenges that our customers running SAP applications have to face.
Chose right infrastructure for the job
With Microsoft Azure, you are able to reliably run your mission-critical SAP workloads and scenarios on a scalable, compliant, and enterprise-proven platform.
Microsoft and SAP are partnering on technology for more than 20+ years. Cooperation is so advanced that both companies decided to use SAP on Azure to run every of their own internal operations. That means something.
