Australian and New Zealand SAP customers will be able to deploy their applications and services on SAP Cloud Platform via Amazon Web Services (AWS), with the availability of a new service through AWS Asia Pacific (Sydney) region.
Customers of the service will have access to new solutions, including the new SAP HANA service, which provides on-demand cloud instances of HANA; SAP Leonardo; SAP Conversational AI, to develop intelligent chatbots; as well as the SAP Cloud Platform Blockchain service.
“Our customers are making strategic decisions for deploying SAP applications on their choice of cloud infrastructure vendors, and many are adopting AWS. We are focused on helping them to deploy, innovate and transform in the same environment to achieve rapid innovation and transformation,” said Björn Goerke, president SAP Cloud Platform and chief technology officer, SAP SE.
“SAP is committed to giving our customers multi-cloud choice and flexibility so that they can achieve their innovation goals. The availability of SAP Cloud Platform in the AWS Sydney datacentre extends our unique offer of multi-cloud flexibility and openness.”
AWS has had a global partnership with SAP since 2011.
“Many customers in Australia and New Zealand including Contact Energy, Fairfax Media, GPT, Origin, OZ Minerals, Seek.com, and Visy Industries have trusted AWS as the best place to run their mission-critical SAP workloads, including production S/4 HANA workloads, for many years. This initiative with SAP extends customers’ ability to enable digital transformation on AWS, remediate existing technology investments, but even more importantly, free up resources to drive innovation,” said Paul Migliorini, AWS Australia and New Zealand managing director.
“We see an incredible amount of innovation in Australia and New Zealand among our customers and we are committed to supporting that innovation by offering our customers choice,” said Stephen Moore, executive director, SAP Australia and New Zealand. “It’s important for us to provide our customers with local access to SAP Leonardo capabilities on AWS to continue to nurture innovation in this market.”
