SNP’s New Move-to-Cloud Solution Moves Microsoft Customers to the Azure Cloud

-Launch of “Cloud Move for Azure” adds a powerful component to the SNP portfolio

-The software enables fast and secure migrations from SAP systems to the cloud and at the same time forms the basis for subsequent data transformations

Heidelberg, September 15, 2020 – SNP Schneider-Neureither & Partner SE is a world-leading provider of software solutions for digital transformation processes and automates data migrations in the SAP environment. The software components of the Data Transformation Platform CrystalBridge® offer highly automated solutions for all IT and business transformations, including cloud projects. In close cooperation with cloud experts from Microsoft, the world’s largest software company, SNP teams have now developed the solution “Cloud Move for Azure”, which will help Microsoft customers to relocate their systems in the future with minimal risk.

As a new and independent component of CrystalBridge®, “Cloud Move for Azure” enables automated and precise cloud sizing through the detailed analysis of an existing SAP system. The sizing can be adapted flexibly and in real time in each project phase with full cost transparency. The subsequent automated implementation of the Azure cloud including SAP S/4HANA allows customers to implement projects quickly, securely and cost-effectively. The end-to-end solution ranging from analysis and roadmap planning to data transformation was the decisive factor for Microsoft to initiate a collaboration with SNP.

Dr. Christine Haupt, General Manager Marketing & Operations and member of the management board of Microsoft Deutschland GmbH, predicts decisive advantages for customers as a result of the cooperation: “Many companies want to move to the cloud but have great respect for the complexity of the project. SNP’s solution Cloud Move for Azure addresses this issue and offers our customers a fast and secure path to the Azure cloud. In addition, SNP has many years of experience in the implementation of complex data migrations – customers benefit from the distinctive expertise of our partner.”

Microsoft’s interest in SNP software and consulting knowledge as well as the future close cooperation between the two companies confirm on the one hand the quality of SNP’s work and its reputation as a “business enabler”. On the other hand, SNP can rely on the power of the world’s largest software manufacturer and win new customers worldwide with the joint market entry of the new software: “We are proud to have won the trust of a major global player like Microsoft. We are very enthusiastic about our collaboration,” says SNP founder and CEO Dr. Andreas Schneider-Neureither. “With our new software solution Cloud Move for Azure, we can make a significant contribution to the success of Microsoft Azure and at the same time benefit from the prestige of such a notable partner – a clear win-win situation,” Schneider-Neureither continues.

"The Cloud-Move-for-Azure solution is another component that offers our partners additional security by enabling better decision-making through extensive and fact-based analyzes and largely automating the deployment to the cloud," adds Lutz Lambrecht, Vice President of SNP Global Partner Management.
