Two of the biggest corporations in software and technology are teaming up to help clients move their workloads out of legacy systems and into the hybrid cloud. After more than 30 years of official cooperation, IBM is now becoming SAP’s first partner to deliver cloud infrastructure and technical managed services, helping end-users to adopt hybrid cloud platforms. The initiative is in conjunction with “RISE with SAP,” a subscription service offering that combines a set of products and services intended to help companies get started with cloud SAP solutions.
Digital transformation is slowly sweeping across almost every industry in one way or another, and hybrid cloud is one method that has been successful by combining legacy systems with cloud computing to harness the advantages of both. IBM and SAP, two of the largest corporations in the global technology landscape, have also announced “BREAKTHROUGH with IBM for RISE with SAP,” a portfolio of solutions and consulting services aimed at accelerating and amplifying the journey to SAP S/4HANA Cloud, the company’s enterprise resource planning (ERP) platform for large businesses. By positioning IBM as a premium supplier for SAP, clients have access to the necessary tools to help accelerate the migration of their on-premise SAP software workloads to IBM Cloud.
