12 Migrating SAP to the Cloud | How to transform your enterprise backbone into a competitive advantage Migrating your SAP environments can be a highly involved endeavor and since these workloads are critical in nature, you'll want to ensure you're following a proven path to success. To streamline this process as much as possible and execute migration reliably, you should consider performing the following activities before beginning your migration: Follow Migration Best Practices 1. Gather baseline information SAP workloads are some of the most deeply integrated in many enterprises' on-premises environments. To account for this through migration, it is necessary to gather as much baseline information about your on-premises environment as possible. Application ownership, utilization data, and dependency mapping, for example, are critical to minimizing disruption. 2. Cleanse your environment As enterprises expand, through both internal growth and mergers and acquisitions, it is common for applications to become redundant or overlapped and for data between applications to be inconsistent or missing. Third-party tools can help you understand your environment and eliminate redundancies and gaps before migration. 3. Leverage an expert For businesses lacking SAP expertise, cloud providers often have partners and professional services organizations that provide tools and best practices to help you successfully migrate SAP workloads.
