The idea of digitizing your business has become a matter of when. Migrating critical loads of data to the cloud is a vital part of this transformation. While deciding on a cloud provider, IT executives are under pressure to find a solution that enables greater agility, reduced costs, and the ability to innovate core business processes.
At the core of many businesses embarking on this journey, there is an SAP environment. However, SAP workloads represent some of the deepest and critical integrated business applications, IT executives are obligated to look for ways to execute this migration in a reliable and timely manner. Organizations migrating to the cloud cannot risk productivity loss or application downtime.
