13 Migrating SAP to the Cloud | How to transform your enterprise backbone into a competitive advantage As businesses explore options for modernizing their SAP environments, many are evaluating SAP S/4HANA, an ERP system that leverages artificial intelligence to help companies digitally transform operations. The system is powered by SAP HANA, an in-memory relational database management system and data platform that supports real-time processing for transactions and analytics. It also allows you to manage all your SAP data in one place, eliminating the need to manage and maintain separate legacy systems and siloed data. As a result, organizations can support their business using real-time data, while also reducing their data and hardware footprint. This is driving many customers to adopt SAP S/4HANA as part of their cloud migration. This enables an organization to realize the benefits of both S/4HANA and cloud immediately after their migration. While SAP S/4HANA offers significant benefits, migrating existing SAP applications to S/4HANA is a significant undertaking. For this reason, other customers are electing to lift and shift existing SAP applications to the cloud and delaying their S/4HANA migration for the time being. These customers can still realize significant benefits, including cost savings, improved performance, increased agility, and access to innovative offerings such as IoT, AI/ML, and real-time analytics, which are complex and costly to build on-premises. It's important to select a cloud provider that will support your particular SAP strategy. Some cloud providers force customers to modernize on S/4HANA during migration. AWS encourages customers to pursue the strategy that works best for them and will never force S/4HANA modernization as part of migration. Regardless of a customer's decision, AWS provides a number of programs and tools that streamline SAP migration to the cloud.
