Tech titans Microsoft and SAP are expanding to the cloud their decades-old relationship. On Monday, the companies announced that various SAP applications are being certified for Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform.
The applications include SAP’s Business
Suite, Business All-in-One, Adaptive Server Enterprise database, SAP Mobile Platform, SAP Adaptive Server Enterprise, and the developer edition of its Hana in-memory computing platform. Through SAP’s Cloud Appliance Library, the companies said that preconfigured software packages will launch quickly.
In a post Monday on The Official Microsoft Blog, Microsoft corporate VP Takeshi Numoto said that this arrangement means customers will be able to get the benefits of using SAP software on Microsoft’s enterprise grade public cloud.
