How Wipro is helping its customers with their SAP transformations on Google Cloud Platform by leveraging its SAP on Google Cloud Expertise.
The digital revolution is here, transforming every aspect of our lives—at home and in business. The rapid advancement of technology is compelling organizations to reimagine their businesses in myriad ways. The need to be agile, innovative, and connected is even more accelerated in the new normal. The global economic slump in recent times, thanks to the pandemic, has further amplified the need for organizations to embrace the cloud in a bid to fuel digital transformation and foster growth. In fact, worldwide end-user spending on public cloud services is forecast to grow 18.4% in 2021 to total $304.9 billion, up from $257.5 billion in 2020, according to Gartner, Inc.
For many organizations that run on SAP, choosing the right migration path to the cloud can be a challenging decision. This is because the SAP landscape has become increasingly complex over the years due to the introduction of numerous new edge technologies by SAP themselves and by other third-party application vendors. Also, the process of migrating to the cloud can be different for different organizations depending on the business objectives, scale of operations and underlying IT infrastructure. Migrating mission critical SAP workloads onto the cloud can offer organizations unparalleled benefits in business agility, cost savings and high availability. However, a mismanaged migration process brings with it inherent complications – ranging from mishandled security processes to data issues to loss of revenue or customer engagement.
Overcoming hurdles in SAP migration with the Google Cloud Accelerator Program
As part of its SAP practice, Wipro partners with several hyper scale cloud providers to offer comprehensive SAP cloud migration services. One of these is Google’s Cloud Acceleration program in partnership with Wipro, which helps accelerate cloud adoption and digital transformation for global enterprises by catalyzing innovation for enterprises across industry verticals. This program also offers several incentives to customers and partners that result in minimal one-time migration costs and significantly reduced total cost of ownership (TCO) of running SAP workloads on the cloud.
Benefits of Wipro’s SAP services on Google Cloud include economies of scale and efficiency that come with the experience and expertise of two large scale service providers enabling the transformation. Wipro’s robust SAP Cloud Migration framework called ‘Safe Passage to Cloud’, the proprietary tooling framework called ‘MigMan (Migration Manager)’and other tools and accelerators support smooth, risk-free migration to Google Cloud. From auto-provisioning for new SAP systems in minutes to the flexibility of multi-platform support to ready to deploy and auto scaling capabilities that enable faster migration, organizations can realize a truly scalable and flexible future ready platform.
