Sapphire Now brought some insight on SAP’s multi-cloud plans, but details were hard to come by. Dick Hirsch goes on a post-Sapphire deep dive to explore what multi-cloud means for SAP customers.
Note: SAP CTO and President SAP Cloud Platform Björn Goerke is speaking at the upcoming Cloud Foundry Summit Silicon Valley – there are also a variety of sessions from SAP at the event. My assumption is that multi-cloud support will be an important topic at these sessions.
At the recent Sapphire conference in Orlando, one of the main points of interest was the support of multi-cloud functionality in the SAP Cloud Platform (SCP). As I followed the coverage of the announcement, I got the feeling that SCP’s support of this functionality was often depicted in a superficial fashion as some sort of a stamp of approval –a checkbox in a list of mandatory capabilities for a modern Platform as a Service (PaaS). What I missed was a deeper coverage of the topic. What exactly did this functionality bring to SAP customers? This blog will explore “multi-cloud” support in general as well as it how specifically relates to SAP’s cloud strategy.
