It’s this.

Like many customers, migrating to SAP S/4HANA and the cloud is a critical part of your digital transformation journey.

The challenge faced by many organizations looking to migrate to S/4HANA and the cloud, however, is defining a clear roadmap and strategy for these migrations.

If you find your organization facing a similar challenge, Microsoft and SAP have teamed up to provide the solution.

Accelerating your Digital Transformation Journey with a Trusted Partnership

Earlier this year SAP announced project “Embrace”, a collaboration with public cloud providers and global service partners. The goal of this initiative is to help customers speed up their digital transformation through a combination of market-approved journeys, reference architectures, select service partners, and the power of Microsoft Azure cloud.

With the recent announcement of SAP and Microsoft’s go-to-market partnership, both companies are looking to build on project Embrace by minimizing the cost and complexity of migrating SAP ERP and S/4HANA customers to the cloud.
