TietoEVRY first in the Nordics to earn the SAP on Microsoft Azure Advanced Specialization status

12 March 2021

TietoEVRY today announced it has earned the SAP on Microsoft Azure advanced specialization, a validation of a services partner’s deep knowledge, extensive experience and proven success at implementing SAP solutions on Azure. With a strong local presence in the Nordics, more than 1,000 SAP consultants and over 2,000 Azure trained professionals, TietoEVRY is a preferred SAP on Azure partner for the reliable transformation to the cloud.

As mainstream support for the SAP ECC platform ends in 2027, and as core SAP products are being optimized for the SAP HANA database, many enterprises are looking for a partner with advanced skills to migrate and modernize their existing SAP environment in the cloud.
“The accreditation is proof that our service excellence and expertise is a commitment to support our customers in one of the most exciting and promising business transformations of the time,” says Pete Nieminen, Head of SAP on Public Cloud at TietoEVRY. “Most enterprises have already realized that utilizing the public cloud as SAP platform brings true scalability for both business and IT. The future requirements for S/4 HANA are also accelerating the need for platform change.”

Utilizing Public Cloud as SAP platform provides clear benefits: 1) reliable, certified infrastructure with global reach; 2) high-fidelity, on-demand platforms and services with automation; 3) infrastructure as a code enabling fast deployment and support operations with minimum or no downtime; 5) cost efficiencies due on-demand infrastructure, multiple licensing possibilities and implementation and optimisation models; and 6) scalability, including for business.

“This recognition truly demonstrates the capabilities of Azure and TietoEVRY’s commitment to this market shift. Achieving this Microsoft specialization is also a good demonstration of TietoEVRY’s capabilities to execute their strategic priorities,” says Jukka Antikainen, SAP on Azure Sales Lead at Microsoft.

TietoEVRY’s SAP on Azure service is PaaS offering which delivers architecture, deployment, management and continuous optimization for SAP workloads hosted in Azure cloud infrastructure. It combines processes, supporting services, best practices, automation, governance and expertise to deliver 24x7x365 administration services of customer SAP systems and Azure IaaS. Moreover, the service also provides SAP Basis module activities needed to keep database and SAP applications up and running.
