The power to transform. Now. Move your SAP applications to Microsoft Azure to create new possibilities for innovation.
SAP and Microsoft together empowered by Accenture and Avanade
SAP and Microsoft both offer powerful technology ecosystems. Their combination creates truly game-changing enterprise capabilities that can unlock significant value fast. Combining SAP with Microsoft empowers businesses with the enterprise systems they need today: data-driven, predictive and delivering insights to anyone who needs them, where and when they need them.
In today’s world, enterprise systems have to do a whole lot more than record what’s already happened. They need to meet customers’ fast-changing demands. They must enable resilient supply chains. They have to make real-time intelligence available from the boardroom to the factory floor. And all that depends on access to new technologies such as AI, predictive analytics, machine learning, IoT, augmented reality and more. And only the cloud can support those capabilities at speed and scale.
Migrating SAP applications to Microsoft cloud enables the agility, flexibility and responsiveness that are simply table stakes in today’s frenetic and unpredictable business environment.
The pandemic has highlighted the need to make change fast. Industries have been transformed virtually overnight. New ways of working have been stood up rapidly. And the need for pervasive intelligence across – and beyond – the enterprise has never been more urgent. What’s more, businesses are under growing pressure to operate sustainably and responsibly – and they need a technology stack to help them do that.
To get there, businesses can no longer operate with a transformation agenda that stretches over years. Accenture and Avanade can help businesses achieve immediate value as they pursue their cloud journeys and migrate their enterprise systems to the cloud. At whatever stage they are on their voyage to cloud, Accenture and Avanade can help both accelerate their progress and unlock value fast along the way.

AUTOMATE FOR EFFICIENCY AND SPEED
Data is the key to unlocking business value. So it's critical that businesses can access and use all available insights. But most struggle to realize automated, fast and secure data extraction from enterprise-wide systems like SAP and find it hard to scale complex solutions beyond a proof of concept. To address this, we've developed the SAP Azure Data Lake Accelerator. Fast setup and configuration reduce the time to data lake adoption, rapidly delivering an enterprise-wide single source of truth for analytical needs with greater savings.
Enabling fully automated data movement from SAP, insights are more readily available to be used with a wider set of Azure Cloud Native Services. Access to the data through a variety of business intelligence applications empowers near real-time analytics to drive better business decisions.
With Microsoft Teams now the de facto collaboration tool for many enterprises, it’s essential that businesses can take advantage of all the applications, data and communications they need in one place to that will empower their people to work and collaborate as effectively as possible. Accenture can help integrate SAP solutions such as SAP S/4HANA, SAP SuccessFactors, SAP Customer Experience and SAP Sales Cloud into Teams and in doing so support a whole new level of collaboration and productivity.
Employees are able to carry out a wide range of business functions and processes from within a single, tailormade workspace. Armed with all the data they need, they can share information and collaborate from wherever they happen to be in order to spark innovation, deepen engagement, and drive growth.
The resilience, flexibility, scalability, and productivity that the cloud offers, combined with the need to reduce operating costs, increase cash flow, and react quickly to new opportunities, as well as changes in the market, are fast changing how organizations prioritize and run core operational processes in the cloud. Our research indicates that now more than ever, CEOs need to prioritize strategic opportunities that enable their companies to transform quickly, thoughtfully and sustainably.
Accenture’s integrated platforms, assets and tools work together to support an effective and rapid migration of SAP solutions to Azure. They cover the entire project lifecycle, enable and accelerate DevOps and automation, provisioning, deployment and operations. The result? Speed to market, increased quality, standardization and cost efficiency with the end-to-end control, governance and visibility over all the manual and automated activities that complex SAP migrations require.
More apps will be created in the next five years than in the last forty, and low code no code solutions will be essential to keep pace with demand. These will allow citizen developers to make a major contribution, and enable professional developers to do achieve more in the same amount of time.
With Microsoft Power Platform, organizations that choose SAP as their primary system, can wrap low code and no code solutions around both core SAP and supplemental applications to create a single set of integrated data. With the power of automation and AI, they can enhance and augment processes rapidly at a fraction of the cost. While the resulting intelligence is significantly more comprehensive, granular and timely, the addition of a low code no code approach creates a flexible ecosystem that delivers competitive advantage across the whole organization.
In today’s volatile landscape, finance must go beyond preserving and identify where cash opportunities can be not just uncovered, but created. To achieve this shift requires a rebalancing of day-to-day finance activities, finding new ways to complete essential process-heavy tasks and freeing up time to focus on more strategic activities that will grow or transform the business. Data and analytics hold the key to re-addressing this balance.
Financial reporting must be more timely, more flexible and able to natively translate complex components in a single instance. Intelligent tools and processes are needed to drive productivity gains. Transformed data access and governance must help improve time-to-insight and enable the business to become more responsive. And to help the business succeed, finance must provide greater access to financial data and offer more timely support.
