SUSE Joins SAP Endorsed Apps Program
For more than two decades, SUSE and SAP have celebrated a strong partnership and commitment to customer success. Rooted in co-innovation, together, we continue to provide immeasurable value and cutting-edge innovation to our joint customers around the world. As SAP solutions enable customers to drive their digital transformation, SUSE has become a leading and one of the most trusted open source platforms for these solutions. We are proud that we offer the first Linux platform, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications, that delivers fast, error-free migrations to SAP S/4HANA with fully automated installation, whether on premises or in the cloud. With SAP by our side, SUSE will continue to be at the forefront of powering mission-critical business applications with our true open source innovations.
SUSE’s joining of this invitation-only program reflects how our technology has delivered outstanding value to our customers. We have demonstrated proven results, borne out through stringent testing by SAP, earning SAP’s premium certification. The trust runs deep with more than 85% of SAP HANA running on SUSE Linux Enterprise.
Tom Roberts, senior vice president, Partner Solution Success at SAP, agrees that SAP’s history of success and ongoing co-innovation with SUSE continues to positively impact customers and the market. “Ecosystem innovations are essential to SAP’s vision and delivery of the intelligent enterprise. We applaud SUSE on achieving SAP endorsed app status for its SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications. This application has undergone in-depth testing and measurement against benchmark solutions earning its premium certification. SUSE is a trusted, long-time partner who shares our commitment to customers, and I look forward to our continued partnership.”
This is just the start. In addition to joining the SAP Endorsed Apps program, SUSE and SAP have increased our co-innovation, including work on Kubernetes containers managed by Gardener, an SAP-driven open source project that tackles real-world demands for hyperscale Kubernetes services, whether on-prem, in the cloud, or on the edge. With SUSE’s acquisition of Rancher Labs, a market-leading enterprise Kubernetes management vendor, we are eager to continue our joint innovation in the Kubernetes space.
I am confident that with SUSE participation in the SAP Endorsed Apps program and our continued co-innovation in Kubernetes, SUSE and SAP will continue to deliver extraordinary value to our joint customers on their digital transformation journey for years to come.
