Do you want to start a Greenfield Implementation of SAP S/4 HANA, SAP Business Suite or Business One on AWS? Are you considering a Migration of your on-premise, on Azure or on HEC SAP environments to AWS? Are you considering an SAP HANA Data Lake on AWS? Or do you have a number of legacy SAP systems and are considering Mothballing your SAP systems on AWS?
We have worked with SAP to AWS since 2007 and can take you through successful preparation steps, making sure risks are identified and understood, your whole team is on board and early benefits and ‘things you can do now’ are identified to kick-start your transformation journey to operating SAP on AWS with a high level of clarity.
We have a large number of referenceable customers for a large number of SAP on AWS scenarios.
We actively encourage our customers and potential customers to engage, share and learn together.
We helped a customer break through a drawn-out, 14-month assessment cycle by showing in detail how their SAP on AWS cost would compare to the cost of their incumbent provider.
After showing a substantial 60%+ cost saving, the customer quickly decided for a Proof of Concept.
We helped an AWS-savvy customer bridge the gap between the native AWS and SAP teams, and proceeded to develop a 3-year SAP to AWS Migration Plan in a large amount of detail, showing all the different patterns that would be deployed.
We then proceeded in executing a Proof of Concept for each pattern.
We engaged with a customer where the IT team was extremely sceptical about the benefits, values and achievable objectives with SAP on AWS.
We executed a Proof of Concept with very clear critical success factors, focused on their areas of concern, and with deep, hands-on participation from the customer team.
As the saying goes: seeing is believing, and the team turned from one of the most sceptical teams we have ever seen to one of the most convinced in a relatively short period of time.
We engaged with a customer who communicated ‘a good knowledge of integration’ with fewer than 100 interfaces, all managed via middleware.
We ended up with a detailed insight of over 180 interfaces, with a large number of a point-to-point and hard-coded nature.
We engaged with a customer with extensive AIX OS Level scripting that was identified as a ‘showstopper’.
We ran an OS discovery, identifying all bespoke scripting, providing a high level of confidence.
We defined a resolution for each script, removing a barrier to migration.
As part of the Seaco migration, we reduced critical batch processes from 4 days to less than 1 day, driving substantial business benefits.
For one of our SAP to AWS migrations, we identified that 30% of the database was filled with redundant SAP Technical Data: workflow data and similar that should be removed using standard housekeeping jobs.
Removing the redundant data resulted in an annual $100,000 cost saving.
For one of our customers, we identified that standard SAP housekeeping jobs were not running successfully.
We fixed the problems, added the jobs to our standard SolMan monitoring, and improved system performance in the process.
Careful and rapid preparation, addressing known opportunities and issues, helps achieve buy-in and identifying early benefits to kick-start your digital transformation journey, ensuring a smooth transition to SAP to AWS and helping to achieve early benefits.

We provide a number of well-defined SAP on AWS services. We structure and standardise where we
can, yet allow customers the freedom to customise services where they require.
