Cloud operating model for SAP S/4HANA

Want to move your SAP S/4HANA system to the cloud? What you should be asking is whether the cloud is a destination or an operating model. This session will explore how VMware and Lenovo have partnered to provide a cloud operating model for SAP applications. We will discuss what a cloud operating model looks like, and how to implement it regardless of where your SAP S/4HANA system is running. We will also look at the underlying infrastructure and architecture that enable you to run SAP applications in your environment using SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud, customer edition, and how you can optimize the design, resiliency, performance, scalability, and TCO as a function of an SLA to bring value in your deployments.

In this session, attendees will:

  • Receive an introduction to the cloud operating model for SAP S/4HANA
  • Learn about how SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud enables the cloud operating model
  • Understand the architecture, infrastructure, and services that enable a robust cloud operating model for SAP S/4HANA
