A new Deloitte collaboration with Google Cloud and SAP, announced in a Thursday press release, could help customers fully realize their cloud plans, manage their cloud environments, and more easily migrate SAP applications to Google Cloud Platform (GCP).
Ultimately, the release noted, the partnership will offer SAP customers the "capabilities required to digitally transform critical business processes and applications, while modernizing core infrastructure and managing hyperscale cloud operations."
GCP is a secure and reliable system for SAP workloads, said the release, and the two are able to integrate easily. Google Cloud will provide customers with analytics, machine learning capabilities, along with secure infrastructure and networking, added the release.
