SAP on AWS Workloads Accelerate

Thousands of customers leverage AWS to run SAP solutions on AWS

Amazon Web Services Inc. (AWS) shared that thousands of enterprise customers are running SAP workloads on AWS -- with hundreds of those workloads in production. Businesses of all sizes and across virtually every industry and geography are running their SAP landscapes, including multiple production environments, on AWS to simplify infrastructure management, improve time-to-market, lower costs, and deliver innovation with AWS  services integration.

AWS has been working with SAP since 2011 to enable customers to deploy and migrate their SAP applications to AWS, and has certified AWS for the vast majority of SAP applications available to customers today. In addition, AWS is working with SAP to power multiple SaaS services and offerings including SAP Concur, SAP SuccessFactors, SAP Cloud Platform (SCP), and HANA Enterprise Cloud (HEC).

“Customers have been relying on AWS to run their mission-critical SAP applications in a secure and optimized way for years, driving significant performance increases and lowering costs,” said Terry Wise, VP, Worldwide Partner Ecosystem, AWS. “Now, we are seeing customers integrate their SAP solutions with AWS’s unmatched capabilities in compute, storage, databases, analytics, machine learning, artificial intelligence, serverless computing, the Internet of Things (IoT), and more to create innovative and differentiated offerings.”

Compass Group, Illumina, AGC Asahi Glass Co., Petronas Lubricants, Sumitomo Chemical, Visy, and Mitsui & Co., Cardinal Health, Bose, Louisiana Pacific, Citco, Thermo Fisher, Contact Energy, Mercury, Del Monte, L&T Infotech, Edelweiss General Insurance, Oppo Electronics, Videocon, and BR Distribuidora are just a few of the customers running SAP solutions on AWS.

Compass Group, better known for its brands including Bon Appetit, Eurest, Canteen, Wolfgang Puck, among others, is one of the world’s largest foodservice companies, serving millions of people daily and employing over 500,000 associates across all continents. Compass Group relies on SAP to run their business, from supply chain and financials to payroll.

“By moving SAP to AWS, Compass has been able to provide a global network between its global offices by sharing data and applications in a cost-effective way via the cloud. This has enabled disaster recovery systems at a local and regional level and ultimately allowed Compass to innovate faster by leveraging the scale, maturity, security, and reliability of AWS,” said Imran Ali, CTO Compass Group.

Illumina is improving human health by unlocking the power of the genome. Their focus on innovation has established them as the global leader in DNA sequencing and array-based technologies, serving customers in the research, clinical, and applied markets.

“By selecting AWS for our SAP HANA Analytics environment, we are now able to meet the growth and agility needs of our business, along with providing a secure, durable, and highly available platform to our customers,” said Norm Fjeldheim, CIO  at Ilumina. “Since deploying on AWS, we can now build and scale SAP environments in a matter of minutes, a previous constraint of ours. SAP HANA Analytics on AWS now acts as our core Data Mart, empowering our business to capture endless data sources, ultimately leading to faster decision making.”
