Introduction
Cloud is a credible and robust infrastructure option for vital business applications. It’s a great way to achieve scalability on demand, control capital expenses, and maintenance costs. When you deploy SAP on the cloud, you transform the SAP landscape into an astute, cost-effective, and flexible system that allows the business to function better, respond quickly to evolving market situations, and benefit from newer technologies and business models.

SAP Migration to AWS Overview
Before you dive in headfirst, you must have a clear objective of why your business is choosing to move SAP to AWS. While the migration itself may appear a reasonably straightforward exercise, it needs to strategized and approached from different standpoints.

Irrespective of whether you’re opting for a ‘lift and shift,’ only a backend database migration, or a complete SAP S/4HANA upgrade, each has its detailed requirements. The migration would need to be in-sync with the broader SAP goals of the organization and the overall cloud roadmap. It is essential to enlist the help of an experienced partner with the maturity and subject matter expertise to outline the strategy, pick a migration approach that works, handle the migration skilfully, and offer ongoing maintenance and support.
