When Microsoft and SAP meet in the cloud
“We’ve been using Microsoft cloud solutions like Azure and Office 365 for a very long time,” explains Koen. “It made sense to us to explore if we could implement SAP on Azure as well, since doing so would offer us a certified environment and plenty of flexibility, scalability, redundancy and security.”
The delaware-Renson team planned an implementation spanning the entire basic SAP S/4HANA package, including core modules like Sales & Distribution, Material Master and others, as well as more specialized modules like Vendor Invoice Management and Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence.
However, the company’s complex, highly automated IT infrastructure proved challenging during the rollout. “It took plenty of brainstorming sessions between our team and delaware experts to get it right, but we eventually developed an ideal solution,” Koen continues.
