A Headache-Free, Hybrid Approach to Adopting SAP HANA
The cloud is quickly becoming the new normal. Studies indicate that cloud adoption among SAP users is close to 90 percent. This doesn’t mean that they have moved their core systems onto the cloud. More likely, customers are adopting the cloud for workloads that are not mission-critical, while keeping their core systems on-premise. Many who are taking the next step to update their infrastructure with SAP HANA or SAP S/4HANA still are choosing to deploy these in an on-premise environment, but this is starting to change.
Of those expected to transition in 2020 or later, 75 percent expect to use the public cloud (at least partially) to run their SAP S/4HANA environment.
