Microsoft and SAP announce expanded cloud partnership

Microsoft and SAP announce expanded cloud partnership

However, he warned that Microsoft and SAP still need to show they can deliver on customer traction, value and success. The two companies also plan to use each other's applications internally, reports Enterprise Cloud News (Banking Technology's sister publication).

Big business software companies Microsoft and SAP have joined hands to expand the use of each other's cloud-based products and services. SAP Ariba already is using Azure and looking into using it within its procurement applications, according to the joint announcement. Indeed, Microsoft announced as far back as 2014 it was working to certify some of SAP's core business applications on its cloud.

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. SAP S/4HANA is an ERP system designed for large enterprises.

At AutoMobility LA™ Cubic Telecom will demonstrate how its data analytics solution powered by Azure Location Based Services will help city planners, automotive OEMs and third parties to more effectively manage Electrical Vehicle (EV) charging station locations, occupancy rates and overall efficiency of the infrastructure.

SAP also plans to move about a dozen of its own internal business critical systems to Azure. This includes the SAP S/4HANA software supporting Concur, an SAP company.

Over the past couple years, Microsoft has increased its effort to get major software vendors to run their software and services on Azure.
