Security concerns, cost of on-premise infrastructure, high-availability and computing performance requirements, and seamless integration options create a compelling business case for enterprises to migrate their mission critical SAP platform to the cloud. SAP on Azure provides greater security, significant reduction in infrastructure costs, ease of integration with other business applications, scalable computing power, greater uptime, ease of provisioning/deployment/ and ability to leverage new technology trends vs on-premise environment.
