Enterprise usage of SAP applications on the Amazon Web Services Cloud is growing, across all industries and geographies, as businesses move mission-critical workloads to the skies.

Since verifying and certifying various solutions for production deployment on AWS, SAP workloads now available include S/4HANA, SAP Business Suite on HANA, Business Warehouse on HANA, SAP HANA, SAP Business All-in-One, SAP Business One, SAP BusinessObjects, SAP Database and Mobile Solutions.

“Enterprise usage of SAP on AWS is growing incredibly fast across all verticals and geographies as enterprises get more comfortable running their most important applications on AWS and the Cloud,” AWS Vice President, Worldwide Partner Ecosystem, Terry Wise, said.

“Since becoming the first public Cloud platform to be certified to run SAP production workloads in 2011, AWS has continued to innovate to deliver the capabilities and operational performance enterprise customers need to run their most critical business applications with confidence on the AWS Cloud.”

As explained by Wise, and in relation to specific sectors, Lionsgate is a global entertainment company that produces feature films and television programming for a worldwide audience.

“We have been using AWS for six years and have achieved significant savings in infrastructure costs,” Lionsgate CIO, Theresa Miller, said.

“As a predominately SAP shop, the ability to run SAP Business Suite and Business Warehouse on AWS is very important for our enterprise IT, especially when it comes to experimenting with new workloads.

“Running our IT infrastructure on AWS lowers the traditional barriers that slow innovation, allowing us the flexibility to spin-up and test new workloads in near real time. This agility gives my team the confidence to try new things.”

In addition, General Electric (GE) is the world’s Digital Industrial Company, changing industry with software-defined machines and solutions that are better connected and more predictive.

Within the organisation, GE Oil & Gas is pioneering the company’s digital transformation, a key part of which is its journey to the Cloud.

“At GE we have to tag, monitor, measure, and automate every one of our business-critical applications and start to create patterns that allow us to make those reusable,” GE Transportation CTO, Ben Cabanas, added.

“Using the AWS Cloud has transformed how we approach this. We are currently running more than half of our core applications on AWS, including several SAP applications, such as SAP Hybris and SAP BI.

“To date, we’ve achieved a 52 percent reduction in our total cost of ownership due to using the AWS Cloud and plan to continue migrating critical applications to AWS - our goal is to migrate at least 500 of our applications.”
