Overall Satisfaction with SAP on IBM Cloud

SAP on IBM Cloud is part of a digital transformation push towards moving core business applications to the cloud and from my personal experience, SAP and IBM Cloud are a match made in heaven. I use SAP on IBM Cloud primarily to enhance and extend the principal SAP capabilities and experience with cloud support and value-added features from IBM. The key business problems that SAP on IBM Cloud helped me solve were how to make essential business applications more secure, faster, and integrated so that they are future-proof and facilitate further digital transformation.
  • Migration to SAP S/4HANA made easy
  • Enables SAP solution scalability on an enterprise level
  • Taps into the wealth of core IBM services to enrich SAP applications
  • Advanced SAP and IBM expertise may be needed to take full advantage of the platform
  • The documentation could be more robust
  • Ensured that SAP meets compliance and risk mitigation requirements
  • Enabled scalability of business applications
  • Increased overall data security
I have tested out both Microsoft Azure and SAP on IBM Cloud and can confidently say that SAP on IBM Cloud is the obvious choice. The key advantages of SAP on IBM Cloud compared to Microsoft Azure are that IBM Cloud offers free unlimited access to tech support, provides higher object storage space as well as unlimited private virtual servers.
I am giving the overall support for SAP on IBM Cloud 9 out of 10 because IBM Cloud provides excellent quality tech support via phone and chat. So far, I have not had a negative experience working with IBM Cloud support staff. They are easy to reach, helpful, and courteous.
