Video – SAP Workloads in the Cloud: Opportunities and Risks
When it comes to SAP workloads in the cloud, knowing the route of cloud technology your organization is heading toward, whether public or private cloud, or a hybrid approach, is foundational to reaping its rewards. For example, the cloud offers opportunities to test ideas more easily and cost-effectively. With 95 or 98 percent of SAP customers using the cloud for their SAP workloads, this offers opportunities to innovate.
However, the aim of innovation must be balanced with an understanding of risks and security threats. Additionally, while artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and predictive technologies take up a larger pie of the cloud conversation, discussions about the cloud journey still typically must revolve around costs, technical infrastructure, and the potential for delays.
SAP customers want to know how the cloud can address the unique problems associated with SAP environments. SAP customers are also concerned about addressing enterprise, regulatory, and compliance risks and threats, and their impact on business continuity and strategic business objectives.
