Overview

Migrating SAP workloads to the cloud is a critical digital transformation initiative that CIOs need to get right in the next 5 years. One thing we have learned from the Covid-19 crisis is that access to real-time data is critical for the adaptability of organisations and enables the response to fast-changing customer behaviour.

Agility and flexibility are two additional aspects that organisations primarily are getting from their usage of cloud services, and which have proven very important in their short-term response to the crisis but also in their longer-term digital transformation strategy.

Migrating business-critical workloads to the cloud requires a strong networking foundation to provide the excellent user experience that employees, partners and customers now expect.

In this interactive webinar, you will hear the expert opinion from IDC, Colt, AWS and IBM on what it takes to migrate SAP workloads successfully to the cloud. We'll discuss the following key questions in a fireside chat format, giving you ample opportunity to ask any questions throughout:

  • Why should I modernise my SAP applications and migrate to S/4HANA now? What is the best modernisation strategy?
  • Why should I consider migrating to a public cloud platform, instead of continuing to run them on-premise? How do I choose the right cloud provider?
  • How do I get the networking right to achieve my business goals and amaze my users with a great user experience?
  • What are the best practices that are emerging and which pitfalls should I avoid?
