Microsoft, Amazon go after enterprises with new SAP cloud offerings

SAPPHIRE NOW Symmetry, a leading enterprise application management and cloud hosting solutions provider, today announced it has further enhanced its cloud hosting platform engineered to support and manage production SAP and SAP HANA workloads alongside traditional IT workloads.

The deals with the public cloud providers would enable SAP to "tremendously accelerate the future build-out of new data centres based on customer demand", it said in a blog post.

"At Sapphire we will be showing examples of SAP and Google collaborating on IoT and with customers and partners in various industry scenarios", said Yen.

In other Sapphire Now news, SAP unveiled two new initiatives: The SAP Cloud Trust Center, a public website that provides real-time information on the current operations and security of SAP cloud systems; and the SAP Transformation Navigator, a self-service tool that customers can use to align their business and IT strategies and provides guidance for utilizing SAP software in light of those strategies. OSIsoft is an SAP Select partner - meaning SAP resells its product under the SAP HANA IoT Integrator name.
