Our partnership with SAP is built on a shared commitment to deliver the best cloud experience for customers.

From working together to create a trusted path to digital transformation in the cloud, to simplifying and accelerating cloud journeys through a shared commitment under the Project Embrace program, the SAP and Microsoft partnership continues to power business transformation for enterprise customers.

Today’s announcement marks another exciting milestone in our longstanding partnership. Through a new, unique and differentiated agreement that builds upon and strengthens the Embrace program, Microsoft Azure is now SAP’s preferred cloud partner to move on-premise SAP ERP and S/4HANA customers to the cloud.

The new go-to-market agreement ensures our customers can choose a cloud migration strategy to SAP S/4HANA on Azure that reduces complexities, minimizes cost, and leverages the best-in-class technologies and expertise of both companies. Our customers want our two companies to come together to enable their business outcomes and drive digital transformation, and this agreement is an important step in that direction.

With our renewed commitment to the Embrace program, we will offer our customers a powerful combination of unified reference architectures, industry-specific best practices, implementation services and support all packaged up in a holistic bundle that makes it easy to migrate to the cloud.

The SAP and Microsoft partnership has spanned more than 25 years, and with our dedication to working together to bring the power of the cloud to an expanded base of customers, we are excited to see what the future holds.
