IBM and SAP team up on hybrid cloud

IBM and SAP have teamed up to make it easier for enterprises to embrace a hybrid cloud approach and move mission-critical workloads from SAPsolutions to the cloud for regulated and non-regulated industries.

Moving workloads and applications that are the central to enterprise operation to a hybrid cloud requires a highly secured and reliable cloud environment.

With IBM for Rise with SAP, enterprises will be equipped with tools to help accelerate the migration of their on-premise SAP software workloads to IBM Cloud, backed by industry-leading security capabilities.

IBM has also unveiled the Breakthrough with IBM for Rise with SAP portfolio of solutions and consulting services that help accelerate and amplify the journey to SAP S/4HANA Cloud.

Built on a flexible and scalable platform, the solutions and services use intelligent workflows to streamline operations. They provide an engagement model that helps plan, execute and support holistic business transformation. Enterprises have the flexibility and choice to migrate SAP solution workloads to the public cloud with support of deep industry expertise.

“Our shared commitment is to meet our clients, especially those in highly regulated industries, where they are in their digital journey, while giving them choices for migrating or modernising their mission critical workloads with a hybrid cloud approach,” said John Granger, Senior Vice President of IBM Consulting.

According to Brian Duffy, President of Cloud at SAP, Breakthrough with IBM reaffirms the value customers recognise from Rise with SAP and the impact and innovation opportunity Rise with SAP offers to organisations that move to the cloud.

“I have every confidence that the combined expertise and experience SAP and IBM offer will accelerate cloud adoption and business growth for customers across the globe,” he added.
