For many SAP customers, moving to the cloud marks the transition from a legacy, capital-intensive landscape to a cost-effective, high performance future. The rate of transition varies, but as companies upgrade SAP ERP and migrate to HANA, most inevitably leave their aging on-premise servers behind.
The reasons, as we’ve said before, aren’t because of shiny new features, but good old-fashioned cost benefit analysis. Basic factors like hosting costs, scalability and agility just make on premise to cloud migration the logical choice.
But there is another set of features with the power to add unanticipated benefits, while supercharging the basic cloud advantages causing SAP users to migrate in the first place. Whether they’re part of your planning or a happy surprise, these are the hidden benefits you’ll find in an SAP public cloud.
