The cloud came as a rude awakening to SAP and rival Oracle, and both companies are making sure current customers can stay within their environments (and revenue streams) while still being able to take advantage of all the cloud native technology that newer startups are running. Through the use of applied cloud techniques and innovative tools, WFT Cloud's migration services provide simplified and cost-effective SAP application migration services to the cloud.

Having its PaaS on top of public cloud infrastructure will bring SAP closer to the cloud experiments - and production deployments - of many of its customers.

SAP intends to make the partnership, announced earlier this year, available globally and partner with Google in machine learning, IoT, data transparency, custodian services and workplace productivity.

Essentially, the latest announcement by the two companies means that SAP applications and solutions for enterprise customers will run directly on the Google Cloud Platform, rather than on a proprietary or third-party platform. "In turn, we are gaining from SAP deeper insights into the art of the possible with the power of SAP Leonardo and upcoming enhancements to SAP S/4HANA".

Virtustream, the enterprise-class cloud company and a Dell Technologies business, today announced that it will expand capabilities as a premium supplier of SAP HANA® Enterprise Cloud.

SAP and Microsoft have also launched a public preview of the former's platform-as-a-service offering on Azure, including an integration with SAP Cloud Platform Identity Authentication Services and Azure Active Directory.

The SAP and Google strategic co-innovation partnership announced in March now includes additional certification of SAP technology and applications on Google Cloud Platform (GCP).

Virtustream, a Dell Technologies business, is the enterprise-class cloud company that is trusted by organizations worldwide to migrate and run their mission-critical applications in the cloud.

Deloitte will work with SAP to develop use cases for Leonardo and create microservices extensions to the platform, especially in such industries as finance and manufacturing.

SAP has made the jump to finally offer its platform-as-a-service on clouds other than its own, using its annual Sapphire Now conference to announce a new multicloud offering.

Digital Innovation System was unveiled before some 30,000 attendees at the Sapphire Now conference in Orlando, SAP executives said the vendor is integrating the IoT system's capabilities with other SAP applications.

SAP is updating its SAP Analytics Cloud to include live connections to Business Warehouse/4Hana, R scripting and other features, and aims to release a new mobile app for it on iOS later this month, it said Wednesday.

An update to SAP S/4HANA ERP application SAP delivers as a cloud service embeds a range of machine learning algorithms that improve the predictive analytics that can be provided in the core application.

Google and SAP want to infuse services like Google Translate and APIs like Google Speech with more advanced artificial intelligence in hopes of finding innovative and attractive solutions to business partners and the general public alike. SAP App Center now offers online discovery so users can easily try, purchase and use partner apps directly from the center.
