Several factors are rapidly transforming the global SAP environment. First, SAP landscapes — as well as the infrastructure on which they run — have become too siloed, complex, and costly in businesses everywhere. Second, SAP has announced that HANA and S/4HANA are the platforms of the future and that support for Oracle, IBM’s DB2, and Microsoft SQL Server will end in 2025. Third, many firms are still running their SAP applications on older Unix-based platforms, which are becoming unsustainable. Fourth, data is the new currency, and data flows are voluminous, diverse, and valuable in terms of the insight they may provide.
