12. © minnosphere 2020 | SAP Embrace 12 Or … why is Microsoft such a special snowflake?

13. © minnosphere 2020 | SAP Embrace 13 • Microsoft runs SAP on Azure  Eat your own dogfood • Microsoft develops tooling for the interaction between SAP and Microsoft Azure (Dev, Ops) SAP @ Microsoft © Microsoft © Microsoft

14. © minnosphere 2020 | SAP Embrace 14 SAP Embrace Journey

15. © minnosphere 2020 | SAP Embrace 15 • SAP Embrace is not a one-stop-shop, it is a journey • SAP Embrace is about Business Value and not about technology • The journey comprises of the following points of interest: • The journey is not a linear sequence, different approaches are possible The SAP Embrace Journey Lift – Enabling Data First Execution Reshape – Enhancing Processes with Intelligence and Automation Create – Creating Experiences with New Business Models

16. © minnosphere 2020 | SAP Embrace 16 SAP on Azure = Rehost What more is in for you? • Using new/enhanced options for operations e.g. high availability and disaster recovery • Availability of sandboxes • Complementing pure IaaS with value-adding services like Azure Sentinel But • Rethinking is necessary: operations model in cloud differs from on premise • “Always on” vs. “Default off” Lift - Enabling Data First Execution

17. © minnosphere 2020 | SAP Embrace 17 Rehost – Shades of Grey • No need to shift everything to the cloud right from the start  Gather experience & build trust first • Microsoft understood hybrid reality of customers  Services often support hybrid scenarios Lift - Enabling Data First Execution

18. © minnosphere 2020 | SAP Embrace 18 SAP and Azure/Microsoft – Refactor • Refactor the rehosted app to leverage cloud capabilities … but it is SAP  • Microsoft 365 • Integration with Office, Sharepoint and Teams (“Modern Workplace”) • Power BI as tool for reporting • Blending in Services • Integration of Microsoft Azure Services into ABAP • DevOps • Combination of SAP gCTS with Azure DevOps Reshape - Enhancing Processes with Intelligence and Automation
