Microsoft And SAP Expand Partnership With Combined Cloud Services

Microsoft and SAP both commit to running SAP HANA on Azure internally

For customers of Microsoft Premier Support, "SAP is able to engage Microsoft on behalf of the customer", per the FAQ. In a bold show of commitment, the two companies also announced they will be deploying each other's cloud solutions internally.

Microsoft has agreed to deploy SAP S/4HANA on Azure for its own internal financial management needs, a move that will help the company move on from its legacy SAP finance applications. The company's procurement software division, SAP Ariba, is also looking at expanding its use of Azure. He explained that it would allow SAP to spend less capital on Hana Enterprise Cloud with the load moving to Azure, and that these savings would likely be plowed back into its research-and-development efforts. "Together, we will help companies win the customer-driven growth revolution".

McDermott stopped short, though, of saying whether the agreement between the longtime software partners calls on SAP to give Azure preferential treatment over rivals, including Amazon. "Microsoft and SAP both benefit because they have an overlap of enterprise customers", said Puranik in an email remarks sent to eWEEK.

Microsoft has additional plans to "connect SAP S/4HANA to Azure AI and analytics services", which aims to drive "more efficient financial reporting", according to the announcement. This includes the SAP S/4HANA software supporting Concur, an SAP company.

Chris Pendleton, Principal Program Manager, Microsoft Azure IoT at Microsoft Corp. added, "Cubic Telecom's rich collection of location-based data on Microsoft Azure provides the opportunity to consider a wide range of public and private applications for customers". The Redmond-based firm announced Tuesday it has engineered SAP's cloud and enterprise resource planning software to run on its Azure cloud, as it bids to steal some of the limelight from Amazon Web Service Inc.'s cloud conference this week. "We produce innovative products that allow our customers to pursue and enjoy their outdoor passions".

The move follows a similar cross-cloud integration partnership made between Microsoft and Adobe a year ago.

A deeper partnership with SAP could open a new path for big corporate customers to use Azure, according to industry analysts.

Microsoft isn't the only major cloud provider touting its partner ecosystem this week.
