SAP Migration to Google Cloud

Merge your system environment with Google’s data cloud to leverage your innovative SAP solutions

SAP on Google Cloud

Google Cloud has an ongoing partnership with SAP to provide SAP-certified infrastructure for all your SAP systems. You can also use dynamic scaling to meet requirements.

Whether managing core SAP applications in a large-scale enterprise or overseeing critical functions in a small business, migrating to Google Cloud enables you to leverage SAP data while ensuring reliability, security, and cost-effectiveness in application operations.

A study by Forrester examined the results of SAP migration to Google Cloud and shared the following achievements:

$3 million 
In annual savings for SAP customers that use Google Cloud to eliminate hardware, optimize software licenses, and utilize other features
$1.5 million
In average savings when businesses avoid downtimes that once resulted in customer complaints
$500,000
In annual savings with fewer server capacity issues, infrastructure disruptions, and other performance issues

Enhanced data integration
Accelerated digital transformation
Real-time access to mission-critical data
Streamlined data ecosystems
