  • Microsoft and SAP both commit to running SAP HANA on Azure internally

In a joint statement, Microsoft said it would use SAP's S/4 HANA database to help run its core internal financial planning functions - replacing older SAP software, while SAP said it would run more than a dozen of its critical internal financial systems on Microsoft's Azure cloud service.

Microsoft has agreed to deploy SAP S/4HANA on Azure for its own internal financial management needs, a move that will help the company move on from its legacy SAP finance applications. Additionally, SAP agreed to run its HANA in-memory database on Azure.

The companies will document these internal projects, to better offer customers guidance and enterprise architecture for the deployment of SAP applications on Azure, according to the release. Using Azure infrastructure to run SAP's solutions entails paying for Azure virtual machine time and any other Azure services used. Microsoft customers will benefit from high-quality location data from TomTom's unique global community and its global partner network, whose users continually provide active and passive map and traffic data insights.

He continues, "The value of aligned engineering, sales and delivery between these two strategic partners will allow our system to accelerate our digital agenda". "This is a very positive and exciting development for us".

Kirk Herbstreit explains how Alabama can still make the Playoff
It has three wins over ranked teams, and could lose one this week if SC drops out, but might gain one if Louisville (8-4) enters. Normally, a win by Auburn over No. 1 Georgia would have been good for Alabama no matter what happened in the Iron Bowl.

The partnership is also a major win for customers, Mueller said. A number of mutual big name customers including the Coca-Cola Co. and Costco Wholesale Corp. claimed that the expanded partnership will help to boost their own cloud strategies. Azure Location Based Services are integrated directly into Azure, enabling enterprise customers to add Location Based Services to their existing Azure cloud solutions with the assurance that it meets Azure's world-class standards of privacy, compliance, scalability, management and simplicity.

"We chose to partner with Microsoft because it has expertise in scaling globally with enterprise customers and shares a joint vision with TomTom to make location a fundamental aspect of the cloud", said Anders Truelsen, managing director of BU Licensing at TomTom. "The Microsoft and SAP alliance provides us with the assurance we need for our innovation in the cloud".

The companies also said they're using each other's products. If customers choose to run SAP on Azure infrastructure, they'll be billed according to virtual machine time and other Azure services they use.

Digital Innovation Conclave was hosted to bring out the importance of a public-private partnership.
