This is just a fantastic platform for dipping your toes into new technologies or running parallel testing of tings like ETL’s and BI Tools. Storage is so cheap and you can switch things on and off at will to save costs. Even if you are a 1-server company just managing email and file storage, going virtual is simply the best option. We still have a few on-prem servers and old Oracle items that we are swiftly moving to eliminate because the cloud is just that much easier and cost effective.

SAP Cloud Platform

SAP Cloud Platform is great for the company that needs a one-stop-shop for their complete e2e solution. No more having to maintain multiple applications separately. This is good for the company that needs to unify their solutions under one umbrella and allow the seamless bi-directional flow of data from start to finish. SAP Cloud Platform is not for everyone. Those smaller companies that may not have the budget or may not have the complexity of applications may not benefit as much as larger companies with a much larger footprint.

Pros

Microsoft Azure

  • Perhaps the biggest advantage of Microsoft Azure is its ease of integration with other Microsoft products. If you're used to using Excel, Access, SQL Server, and other Microsoft products, Azure will fit in nicely.
  • Azure does a good job at pointing the user into user-friendly methods for data capture and analysis. In fact, I think Azure does the best job at this compared to competing tools.
  • Microsoft Azure has recently made strides in implementing advanced analytics, such as machine learning. Their advances are great and integrate nicely with the tool.

  • It provides real-time data information to improve business processes.
  • It is a service of high availability at all times and from mobile applications.
  • This service is the best investment a company can make, since you will get instant improvements.

Cons

Microsoft Azure

  • Sometimes its a bit overwhelming as to the volume of functions
  • The layout could be more intuitive
  • While there are a lot of support docs it could be laid out a bit better to help you get where you need to go
Kyle Kochtan | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP Cloud Platform

  • It can do better on availability.
  • If some advance notification can be provided on security patching plans, then we can be better prepared. Recently a security patch on the platform killed some function on our portal that used some older protocols - we couldn't test these as we didn't see the patch coming to avert this outage.

Moving to Azure was and still is an organizational strategy and not simply changing vendors. Our product roadmap revolved around Azure as we are in the business of humanitarian relief and Azure and Microsoft play an important part in quickly and efficiently serving all of the world. Migration and investment in Azure should be considered as an overall strategy of an organization and communicated companywide.

Fairly easy to manage with a lot of small exceptions. Interface blades can seem to branch out many levels deep making changes and available settings difficult to find. There are seemingly endless and obscure gotchas and undocumented limitations and pitfalls that can only be realized after the fact.

Microsoft products are well-known for 24x7 global coverage of customer support. They also sometimes come with a multiple support plan, which caters to different business requirements and needs. However, more support will also mean more cost to bare. Other than that, limited options in technical training sometimes make it quite challenging in finding the right talents for managing Microsoft Azure clouds and more dependency in Microsoft technical support.

Alternatives Considered

Microsoft Azure

Google Cloud has a selection of products that are specific to machine-learning, but they are better for more specific use-cases like Natural Language Processing, Computer Vision, and other APIs. For our company, we were looking for APIs and cloud products that had a bit more flexibility in their interface, which is something that Azure offered for more of their products.
Fedor Paretsky | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP Cloud Platform

Whilst Heroku will interact nicely with Salesforce, from my experience, SAP's integration is better for enterprises. The connection of several data sources is really the main advantage with the addition of the platform working on top of your existing SAP landscape. User access management is also very easy for the organisation.

Return on Investment

Microsoft Azure

  • This solution has allowed reduction of hardware costs. Virtualization is by far much less expensive than onsite platforms.
  • Buying and configuring systems is costly in terms of initial investment and specialized staff. Azure minimizes those costs.
  • Azure has created a positive impact on our business objectives in the sense that it has allowed system integrations to become available in a quicker time frame than typically expected.

SAP Cloud Platform

  • Cloud Platform has helped to move with the development much faster vs. waiting on the update of core SAP product.
  • It has helped to test the business's capability within minimal time and limited investment.
  • Successful integration between ERP and cloud applications.
