Journey to Cloud for SAP solutions

Simplify and accelerate moving SAP applications to the cloud


Moving to the cloud means taking advantage of the investments, innovations and developments that others have already put in place. The cloud enables businesses to “stand on the shoulders of giants,” avoiding the need to commit capital investment and considerable time and energy to developing standalone, on-premises solutions.

Enterprises are already running parts of SAP in the cloud, with Software as- a-Service (SaaS) solutions such as SAP SuccessFactors for human resources and SAP Ariba for procurement. And SAP S/4HANA’s capabilities and suitability for cloud platforms as a "next generation" ERP solution are accelerating the need to migrate to the cloud to gain the flexibility and agility that are the hallmarks of a successful business in the digital age.


Accenture provides the tools, capabilities and experience to unravel the complexities of a cloud migration—and help optimize assets after migration. We help companies get there as quickly and effortlessly as possible with the following services:

  • Plan—Strategy, assessment and roadmap: We start by helping organizations define their own Journey to Cloud, providing industry-tailored insights and prioritizing planning so that they can maximize cloud capabilities to help reach the most urgent business targets. We assess business requirements and current technology to create an actionable plan that gets to cloud quickly.

  • Move—Cloud transformation and migrations: We offer the tools and processes to move and modernize applications, build new cloud-based apps and transform clients’ architecture and infrastructure, helping ease the transition to a new technology operating model and culture by taking on the complexity so clients don’t have to.

  • Manage—Cloud management and optimization: In this phase, Accenture becomes part of the client company’s fabric, helping them to maximize the value from their cloud investments. We offer a cloud management platform, tools that provide cost controls, governance, and accountability and help them evolve to a DevOps culture.

This new approach to migration and management requires new methodologies and new partnerships. We have developed multiple service options by expanding alliances with for example Microsoft and Amazon Web Services to make SAP applications available on both AWS and Azure.
