Why Azure gets Centiq’s seal of approval

Over and above the obvious technological headlines, the added value that Microsoft Azure delivers to customers can often be missed.

01

SAP Focused Culture

With a focus on enabling SAP transformation, Microsoft has invested in a number of team’s dedicated to SAP workloads. Customer Success Units, dedicated technical resources, and FastTrack teams are just a few of the support offerings at the disposal of both customers and partners. With collaboration at our core, and a joint desire to deliver projects seamlessly, we work closely with all the SAP teams across Microsoft, ensuring where appropriate, dual supported project delivery for our customers.

Project Embrace

The variety of Cloud offerings in the market can be confusing. It often leads to lengthy qualification processes around which hyperscaler is best for your business-critical workloads. To remove some these barriers Microsoft and SAP have made a joint commitment to simplify customer journeys to the Cloud through project ‘Embrace’. This preferred Cloud partnership cements Azure as the obvious choice for customers looking to transition to the Cloud. For more information on project Embrace click here

Innovation

We are dedicated to the constant improvement of Microsoft’s Azure services for SAP. We actively participate in their partner councils and in technical reviews sharing best practice and customer challenges, which are then looped back into the development roadmap with regular frequency. We also work closely with Microsoft’s engineering team contributing to code and automation strategies for SAP on Azure, released to the public via GitHub. Microsoft’s investment in feedback loops and automation techniques paves the way for proactive strategy that will continue to meet the pace of change demanded by the modern enterprise.

Community

Like Centiq, Microsoft recognises the importance of the wider SAP ecosystem to their business. Established relationships with other key technology vendors, such as SUSE, Red Hat, Dell, and of course SAP, alongside engagement with external organisations such as the SAP User Groups across the world means they have their finger on the pulse when it comes to market trends, challenges and opportunities. They encourage regional focus groups for Azure and also have an established global SAP on Azure partner council, where Centiq holds a seat.
