SNP Schneider-Neureither & Partner SE, provider of software solutions for digital transformation processes and automated data migrations, has developed new solution packages for moving SAP landscapes to the cloud in a simple and predictable manner.
The cloud migration packages are based on the data transformation platform CrystalBridge, which automates the migration of SAP systems to the cloud, therefore providing a fast and secure move. The packages include all costs that are necessary for a successful data migration – software licenses and consulting services – and the fixed price ensures highly reliable planning. In addition, the packages enable a particularly fast move to the cloud thanks to SNP’s flexible, software-based approach: Depending on the complexity and requirements, the time between performing the assessment and gaining access to the migrated SAP systems in the cloud is often less than six months.
The three cloud migration packages are designed for different scenarios with varying complexities. The first package enables a 1:1 migration of SAP landscapes to the cloud (“lift and shift”) along with the necessary SAP upgrades of the ECC systems, operating system and database changes, and even Unicode conversions. The other two packages offer a selective data migration to the cloud and a migration to SAP S/4HANA in a cloud environment, respectively.
In addition, companies have the option to add downtime optimisation and the creation of a proof of concept for a test system. If additional functions are required, the packages can be supplemented with further services and software modules from SNP. SNP offers each package in four different sizes, depending on the system size and number of users. The offer is aimed at both direct customers and partner companies, which can include the packages in their offerings.
“Our cloud migration packages enable customers and partners to move to the cloud quickly, securely and in a highly automated manner with CrystalBridge,” says Michael Eberhardt, CEO of SNP. “According to its size and objectives, we offer each company the ideal solution package at a fixed price. In this way, customers benefit from highly reliable planning and won’t experience any unpleasant surprises during the project. We are convinced that this will give many companies exactly the security they need to take the step into the cloud.”
“Our primary goal in developing the cloud migration packages is to provide customers and partners quick and easy access to SNP solutions,” adds Julian Brumby, Head of Client Services for SNP UKI. “Partners can seamlessly integrate these packages into their own offerings to provide users with an optimal end-to-end solution. At the same time, customers benefit from a fast, secure and highly automated migration to the cloud with the data transformation platform CrystalBridge. This provides a manageable path for moving to the cloud.”
