Moving from SAP on-premise to SAP Cloud

Here are the steps you can follow to move your SAP on-premises system to SAP Cloud:

  1. Assess your SAP on-premises landscape: You should start by evaluating your current SAP on-premises landscape, including the SAP modules, custom code, and integrations you have in place. This will help you identify the work that needs to be done to move to SAP Cloud.
  2. Determine your SAP Cloud strategy: Based on your assessment, you should determine your SAP Cloud strategy. This may include deciding which SAP Cloud products you want to use, determining the best deployment option (e.g., public cloud, private cloud, hybrid cloud), and defining your migration plan.
  3. Prepare your data for migration: Before you can move your data to SAP Cloud, you will need to clean and prepare it for migration. This may involve de-duplicating records, standardizing data formats, and correcting any errors or inconsistencies.
  4. Migrate your data to SAP Cloud: Once your data is ready, you can start the process of migrating it to SAP Cloud. This will involve setting up connectivity between your on-premises system and SAP Cloud, and using tools and utilities provided by SAP to transfer your data.
  5. Test and validate your SAP Cloud system: After your data has been migrated to SAP Cloud, you will need to test and validate the system to ensure that everything is working as expected. This may involve running regression tests, user acceptance tests, and other types of testing to ensure that the system is stable and ready for production use.
  6. Go live with SAP Cloud: Once you have completed all of the necessary testing and validation, you can go live with your SAP Cloud system. This will involve configuring your system for production use, training your users, and transitioning your business processes to the new system.

Integrating SAP cloud with other platforms

There are several ways to integrate SAP Cloud products with your existing platforms:

  1. SAP Cloud Platform Integration: SAP Cloud Platform Integration is a cloud-based integration platform that allows you to connect SAP Cloud products with your on-premises systems and other cloud-based platforms. You can use it to build integrations using pre-built connectors, integration flows, and other tools.
  2. SAP Cloud Platform Extension Factory: SAP Cloud Platform Extension Factory is a cloud-based platform that allows you to build custom extensions for SAP Cloud products. You can use it to build integrations with your existing platforms using APIs and other integration technologies.
  3. SAP Cloud Platform API Management: SAP Cloud Platform API Management is a cloud-based platform that allows you to manage APIs and build integrations with your existing platforms. You can use it to expose APIs, build integration flows, and manage API usage and access.
  4. SAP Cloud Platform Open Connectors: SAP Cloud Platform Open Connectors is a cloud-based platform that allows you to connect SAP Cloud products with over 150 different SaaS and cloud-based applications. You can use it to build integrations without writing any code.
  5. Custom development: If none of the above options meet your integration needs, you can also build custom integrations using languages and technologies supported by SAP Cloud Platform, such as Java, Node.js, and Python.
