Hanoi (VNS/VNA) - Microsoft Vietnam and SAP – one of the global leaders in enterprise software – announced a strategic partnership on March 22.

This mutual collaboration aims to propel Vietnam’s Industry 4.0 by providing integrated offerings from both companies for enterprise customers in Vietnam to be able to drive more business innovation in the cloud. This collaboration will also help accelerate SAP and Microsoft’s cloud business growth in the country.

As leaders in enterprise software, SAP and Microsoft are aligning closely to provide companies in Vietnam with the safe and trusted path to digital transformation. SAP and Microsoft are moving ahead in bringing SAP’s various software and services to Azure. The two tech giants will also co-engineer, go to market together with premier solutions and provide joint support services to move forward to the best cloud experience for customers.

General Director, Microsoft Viet Nam, Pham The Truong, said “The strategic partnership with SAP marks a milestone for Microsoft in not only powering our own organisation, but also powering our enterprises in Vietnam to run their most mission-critical applications and workloads with SAP S/4HANA on Azure.”

“We are taking our relationship to the next level with this new capability to run SAP S/4HANA in the Microsoft Azure environment,” said Josephin Galla as Managing Director, SAP Viet Nam.

“The world’s significant businesses trust Microsoft and SAP. This trusted, optimised and seamless enterprise-ready cloud strategic partnership will help businesses in Vietnam accelerate their digital transformation. Together, we will help Vietnamese companies leapfrog and thrive in Industry 4.0.”

SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud — SAP’s private managed cloud service — on Microsoft Azure allows customers to run SAP S/4HANA in a more secure, managed cloud. With SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud on Azure, customers get the best of both worlds: application management and product expertise from SAP and a global, trusted and intelligent cloud from Microsoft Azure, including the range of Microsoft cloud services.

Around 85 percent of businesses in the world’s Fortune 500 are operating on Microsoft and SAP systems. In Vietnam, there are 15 firms starting their digitalisation progress by running SAP service in the Microsoft environment. –VNS/VNA
