CANCOM Managed SAP on Azure

Your SAP infrastructure for the future


The move to the public cloud is usually driven by clear goals: higher flexibility and scalability than in-house operations – and lower, pay-as-you-go costs. For example, are you planning an SAP conversion and then running your SAP landscape your SAP landscape in the public cloud?

The problem with reducing costs is that Infrastructure as a Service is typically not a turnkey solution. Instead, it requires considerable configuration and management effort. Moreover, the operation of business-critical SAP environments also demands extensive expertise. Opt for SAP Basis operation with CANCOM Managed SAP on Azure – so that you can actually achieve your efficiency goals when moving to the public cloud!

We provide high availability

Many organizations need to increase the availability of their ERP system, especially if it runs production planning and control. Don’t take any risks when running SAP:

  • Implement a Standard or High Availability System

  • With a high availability architecture, we set up the SAP environment to be mirrored in a 2nd Azure region in Northern Europe.

  • This covers the SAP HANA database and the SAP application server, including the associated disks.

Benefit from our consumption expertise

What compute resources, in which Azure regions, with what server availabilities would be optimal for your business? And what if you are not using Microsoft SQL Server? Where do you get a backup solution for the database? Since this is not pre-built in the Azure toolkit, but has to be created by you, do you have the necessary know-how, e.g. in terms of backup cycles? If not, CANCOM’s XaaS/Managed Services offerings are the perfect choice!

IT Governance: Permanent control of your applications and data

One of the most important and challenging tasks is to ensure seamless IT governance. For example, if the accounts of employees who have left the company are not promptly deleted, this quickly creates an open security flank that can be exploited by hackers. It is therefore essential that all cloud services are used securely and compliantly at all times. We can help you implement a comprehensive IT governance strategy – from implementation to operations. We work with you to define the basic rules. We then use powerful tools to implement and monitor the defined rules. All processes are highly automated for maximum efficiency.
