First steps of moving SAP to the cloud

1. Possibilities

SAP on a cloud platform can, if done right, open up great new possibilities. A good first step is to map out how the change of infrastructure can create value for your organisation. In general, a cloud-based SAP system comes with greater scalability, flexibility and cost-control. Understanding how these benefits can help your business is key in order to make a well-informed decision.

2. Pitfalls

All big projects come with challenges. Before moving SAP to the cloud it’s a good idea to understand eventual pitfalls and how to avoid them. The level of security and compliancy is one key area that need to be discussed. An increase in traffic costs is another area that needs to be discussed with your SAP experts.

3. Timing

Organisations utilizing SAP applications will sooner or later be needed to run it on a cloud platform. SAP has already now stated that maintenance of noncloud-based SAP systems will stop year 2025. But a shift to the cloud, or at least preparing for 2025, may be beneficial before that.

4. Current setup

Before moving SAP to the cloud, assess and look over your current setup. Map your SAP architecture, review if some applications can be replaced or retired, and clean up your IT from unnecessary SAP data. This makes a shift to the cloud both easier and more cost-efficient.

5. Continous value

In order to take advantage of all benefits of a cloud-based SAP system, your organisation need to maintain and manage it. This can be done either by in-house or external SAP experts. Continuous optimisation and compliancy work is the only way for your organisation to ensure a cost-efficiantempowering and flexible SAP system.
