AWS Webinar: SAP Solutions on AWS Cloud 09 15 13


Published on

AWS has seen a dramatic acceleration of SAP customers running their mission-critical SAP software on the AWS Cloud. Join us to learn what these customers already know: how the running of key SAP enterprise solutions, such as SAP Business Suite, SAP All in One, and SAP HANA, in production on the AWS cloud, drive business agility and innovation into your business, and dramatically reduce the TCO of running SAP. AWS will articulate the benefits and business case for running SAP solutions on the AWS Cloud. We will also highlight several customer success stories, where to find test drives or trials now available, and how to engage with AWS or an AWS partner on next steps.
