Accelerate digital transformation in the new normal with SAP and Red Hat

According to IDC, Asia-Pacific (APAC) organizations are beginning to recover from the pandemic crisis. At least 55% of organizations are focusing on new technology investments to return a growth model or operate more like a digital enterprise that is vital to succeed in the future.

A majority of SAP customers are on track to migrate to SAP S/4HANA® by 2027 as part of their digital transformation.

Migrating your SAP environment provides an opportunity to modernize your underlying IT infrastructure with open source and cloud technologies to reduce costs and complexity, streamline operations and maintenance, and increase business agility.

Find out how Red Hat® open source solutions—container, automation, and integration technologies with the underlying operating system of Red Hat Enterprise Linux® —may make your migration journey more manageable and provide the flexibility your business needs.
