I am currently 30,000 feet above ground flying back home from a business meeting, my head literally in the clouds, it is remarkable to think of how cloud technology has transformed businesses over recent years. Companies now store data, the network, the endpoint and other sensitive information in the cloud, resulting in reduced business costs and increased business effectiveness. Cloud transformation is one of the most important and effective technology movements facing businesses today.
Legacy company infrastructures were built without the cloud in mind, so now many organizations are in different stages of the ERP-to-cloud migration process, whether in the discussion, in planning or completion. Every partner we work with is currently helping their customers with complex digital transformation projects and cloud migrations.
Business-critical applications such as those delivered by SAP, Oracle, Infor and Microsoft are being migrated to the cloud because of benefits we are all familiar with, such as lower capital and maintenance expenses, scalability, increased support for mobility and more. Specifically, SAP is positioning to support its customer's move to the cloud with a new, more dynamic and mobile-friendly suite of applications built on the S/4HANA platform.
Although SAP S/4HANA is designed for ease of use, the journey to get to the cloud is not an easy one. Going from on-premises systems to the cloud could mean losing access to security telemetry data from next-generation firewalls, identity access management and web gateways. This means customers may be left blind to code vulnerabilities, drifts in configuration, internal and external threats, and privacy and compliance violations.
