In this report:
Infrastructure is the foundation of your SAP landscape. Over the last ten years, this has changed significantly for SAP customers, with many moving from Unix platforms running third-party databases to Linux environments using SAP HANA. The shift to cloud-based infrastructure has sped up. While this has been underway for over a decade, organizations have sped up moving workloads to the cloud as they have replaced aging or legacy on-premise infrastructure. To learn more about what SAPinsiders are planning for their SAP infrastructure and landscape, SAPinsider surveyed 120 members of our community between July and August 2022. We sought to understand what SAP workloads they were running; the infrastructure used for those workloads and their timeframe for change.
The biggest factors behind SAP infrastructure plans were a need to modernize infrastructure while reducing costs, and the requirement for cloud deployments to support digital transformation objectives. These factors directly connect to nearly half (49%) of the respondents we surveyed who said that it was likely they would move their SAP workloads off internally managed infrastructure as they updated their landscape. Only a quarter of respondents (26%) said that it was unlikely that they would make this change. The most likely infrastructure choices were a private cloud or hosting company, frequently a hosting company that organizations have used in the past, followed by a multi-tenant hyper scale environment, as seen in Figure 1.
