Enabling more digitization in the enterprise with less effort? IT managers in companies and their SAP landscape are currently facing numerous challenges: Management wants innovation and cost transparency, while specialist departments are demanding process transformation and new digital tools for new business solutions. The SAP landscape is at the center of these efforts.

How can IT manage to meet all requirements while pursuing a consistent digitization strategy? How can IT managers make the SAP landscape fit for the tasks of the future without driving up SAP costs? In fact, investments alone do not automatically make an SAP landscape that has grown and been modified over many years fit for the future.

Why the cloud should be at the center of SAP's strategy

SAP in the cloud gives companies the scope to shape the transformation of business processes while keeping costs transparent. The cloud offers highly flexible resources on demand and the cloud operator takes care of the operation and maintenance of the SAP landscape.

  • IT can focus on development and innovation of the core business
  • No need for continuous investment in own infrastructure
  • Always use the latest infrastructure stack
  • Perfect scalability depending on current requirements

Another advantage: Many German companies have moved into a kind of digital dead end with ever more customized SAP systems. The transition to the cloud can be an occasion to consolidate the SAP landscape with external support and return to the standards. In this way, organically grown SAP landscapes with all their adaptations and extensions become standard-compliant again - the maintenance effort is reduced. 

Sample cost comparison between on-premise and cloud operation over three years.

How the SAP transition to the cloud succeeds

By operating SAP Basis in the cloud, companies and IT can concentrate fully on the core tasks in the company. With "SAP Basis on pluscloud", not only the maintenance and operation of SAP Basis is no longer necessary for the company. Because PlusServer offers the entire range here: from the transition and transformation of the SAP landscape into the cloud to the entire infrastructure stack including update service and backups from a single source. Thus, the SAP system is optimized and secured at all times and is operated on highly available, SAP-certified hardware in German data centers. 

A dedicated project manager plans the entire project at eye level with the customer from the very beginning and coordinates the course of the individual steps. PlusServer then provides the necessary infrastructure architecture and implements the required interfaces.
