The Challenge
Building on its success as a provider of on-premises enterprise software, SAP wanted to expand its offerings and launch a cloud platform to deliver SAP solutions. Creating comprehensive software-as-a-service (SaaS) and platform-as-a-service (PaaS) offerings would allow existing customers to reduce their infrastructure investments while also lowering barriers to entry, potentially attracting new customers for whom SAP software was previously not viable. To address demand for always-available business applications, SAP needed to ensure its cloud offering would meet enterprise requirements.
