An exclusive, free one-day forum

Migration to the cloud is inevitable. It's not if you do it, it's when and how. SAP is making a huge investment in cloud-based solutions - in fact there are so many cloud offerings coming from SAP that it’s hard to keep up. If you want access to the latest and greatest, you’ll eventually have no choice but to move to the cloud in some way, shape, or form.


At this one day event, SAP and Cloud experts from IBM lead you and your colleagues in learning and group discussions around what you need to know when migrating SAP to the cloud. You will:


  • Understand the requirements, key considerations, and tradeoffs you’ll need to address before migrating your SAP® solutions to the cloud
  • Learn which cloud model — full service or development service — is best for your SAP installation
  • Gain insight into deploying SAP HANA® in the cloud and ensuring optimal configuration, security, and performance
  • Get an overview of IBM and SoftLayer IaaS and PaaS solutions for core SAP ERP applications and SAP HANA
  • Walk away with recommendations for custom cloud deployment, support, services, hosting, and more
  • See how leading organizations leverage their cloud solutions for flexible deployment options that support unique business requirements

*Please feel free to bring a colleague with you or, if you can't make it, pass this event information along to your colleagues!
