With 76% of the world’s transactions touching an SAP system as some point, SAP continues to dominate the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) market. Out of the tens of thousands of customers that are on SAP’s flagship software release, Enterprise Common Core (ECC), 100% of them will be moving somewhere by 2025 as SAP retires maintenance for that release. This is to enable the innovations that are powered by SAP’s HANA in-memory database, like S/4HANA and BW/4HANA. This catalyst for change is causing the entire SAP customer and partner ecosystem to take a strategic look at their SAP landscapes and to define how they will enable their digital transformation with HANA.

As one of the world’s most successful SAP global partners, itelligence understands the opportunities and complexities many of these SAP customers face today. They serve large global organizations, and have been implementing and maintaining SAP environments for decades. The AWS and itelligence partnership will focus on enabling customers to attain the benefits of the AWS Cloud (like elasticity, resiliency, security and global scale) in combination with their award winning SAP implementation and operational expertise. Customers can now benefit from both the AWS and SAP innovations without risk or disruption for their existing business operations.

As we continue our joint efforts, customers will see more AWS fueled itelligence offerings that will help SAP customers achieve agility in consuming SAP innovations, increased choice, lowered costs, and reduced time to value.

Today, customers are able to:

  •  Retire their on premise capital expenses by executing datacenter migrations to AWS
  • Accelerate using tools and best practices to perform SAP migrations in days vs. weeks
  • Harden their corporate security and increase their resiliency by leveraging multi-region business continuity and disaster recovery architectures.
  • Consolidating SAP landscapes and moving production environments to AWS on the largest selection of certified HANA offerings for public cloud

In addition, itelligence is integrating AWS into their managed services offerings to help customers reduce the complexity of their IT environment. Together we are looking to integrate AWS offerings like artificial intelligence, big data and machine learning to proactively automate, monitor, and maintain customers’ SAP environments.

We are very excited about our relationship with itelligence and we will continue to co-innovate with them to bring the best solutions and offerings to SAP customers. On behalf of the entire AWS organization, we would like to thank the itelligence team for their commitment and leadership. Welcome to the Amazon Partner Network.
