Award Winning Partner Mazzy Technologies
Run SAP solutions across development, testing, and production scenarios and realize the power of the Azure Cloud. Organizations of all sizes have an opportunity to optimize cost savings and increase agility by migrating their SAP workloads to Microsoft Azure. Your SAP estate is mission-critical, and Mazzy Technologies together with SAP & Microsoft, we excel at streamlining migration to an enterprise-grade cloud platform you can trust.
A high-level typical Migration
Whether you are planning a simple migration or embarking on a complex SAP transformation, the first step is to take inventory and catalog your current SAP estate. Document all your SAP and non-SAP solutions. In addition, analyze your current infrastructure configuration. This includes “right-sizing” of compute, storage, and networking requirements based on current usage and estimated growth patterns. During this exercise, Mazzy Technologies will rationalize what workloads need to be refreshed, renewed, and/or replaced based on your business requirements. Then, define goals for the capabilities you would like to unlock with Azure.
Additionally, we nee to determine your key stakeholders and empower IT staff with the necessary training to anticipate and advance technical changes. This will help align teams and set expectations. It can also help in developing an action plan with assigned resources and commitments.
Together, SAP, Microsoft, and Mazzy Technologies offer best practices and planning materials to map your existing ecosystem to the desired future state.
We start with an Architecture and Design planning session with Mazzy Technologies an SAP-certified partner and Microsoft-certified partner. Using the information from the Discovery phase, we can evaluate and map to the powerful capabilities of Azure.
Azure provides virtual machines and HANA large instances that are optimized for deploying SAP landscapes. We also offer tools to establish security, high availability, disaster recovery and backup plans. If your organization needs specific customizations, such as custom code, governance, and compliance, we can add those elements to your ecosystem to manage them going forward. As you build your business case, consider the total cost savings that can be realized by optimizing the scale, size, and snooze options available in Azure.
Realize: It is time to bring your plans to life. You may consider starting with a pilot, to test initial migration processes. Ensure your planned configuration accounts for all your desired capabilities. Throughout this phase it is critical to anticipate any relevant planned downtimes and communicate technology changes to the business.
Deploy: As you start the migration process, you can leverage our open source SAP deployment automation framework with Terraform and Ansible. These components automate deployment of your SAP landscape based on SAP on Azure reference architectures and best practices recommended by SAP and Microsoft. Use these services to streamline your migration as you consider all the elements of your new environment.
Think long-term about your overall SAP estate. Reference the SAP virtual machine deployment guide. Check your backup and recovery capabilities. Then conduct the orchestra of cutover for compute, storage, network, and access controls for the SAP landscapes you want to take to the cloud.
After you have deployed your SAP workloads in Azure, you can optimize landscapes for new technological advances and continuously cut costs as new updates are shared. Azure offers several services to help you secure your SAP estate and give you visibility across all your applications.
Protect your data with Azure Backup for HANA and ensure it is well managed with Azure Monitor for SAP solutions, which collects real-time telemetry across your new configuration. To optimize your SAP Basis operations, evaluate SAP Landscape Manager (LaMa) and use the SAP LaMa Azure Connector to relocate, copy, clone, and refresh SAP systems. Azure security services will help you establish a secure environment, so you can run mission-critical apps and data with confidence. While you are continuously gaining feedback on your ecosystem, you can optimize performance by actively receiving reports on availability and cost management. In addition to these Azure services, we also support choices for third-party applications, and create integration experiences to match your unique preferences.
This is an exciting area for customers as they begin to break down silos and create new user experiences to add tremendous business value.
After migration, you can integrate your SAP and non-SAP data through an extensive portfolio of Azure and SAP data services. This allows you to create real-time dashboard views of current operations, use data analytics to understand trends and gain predictive insights, and use data visualization tools to communicate across the organization and enable powerful business outcomes.
Customers who shift their SAP workloads to Azure can access a robust repository of built-in process integration apps and APIs. For example, you can integrate SAP Cloud Platform Identity Authentication with Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) single-sign on (SSO), to manage data access across multiple sources from a central location. This central location can contain automated tools to help you manage workflows, with real-time visibility into your Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).
The developers in your organization will appreciate the ability to tap into more than 100 cloud services in Azure to innovate with new capabilities in the cloud. You can also enhance productivity and collaboration, with integration to Microsoft 365, Microsoft Teams, Microsoft Power Apps, and Microsoft Power BI, as well as first-class integration with SAP solutions like SuccessFactors, Ariba, and Fieldglass.
