Digital business requires modern IT
To remain successful in fast-evolving markets, organizations must embrace digital business practices and up-to-date IT infrastructure. In fact, 54% of organizations cite digital transformation as one of their top three technology initiatives.1
As a critical part of your business infrastructure, your SAP® environment can also benefit from modernization. To continue receiving SAP support, you must migrate your underlying databases to SAP HANA® and your existing SAP applications to SAP S/4HANA® by 2027. This migration presents an opportunity to modernize and realign your SAP environment with overall IT digital transformation initiatives. Modernizing by migrating to Red Hat Enterprise Linux for SAP Solutions and Intel technology can provide:
- Faster data access for users and applications.
- More accurate insight via machine learning models.
- Increased agility to better support digital business demands.
Open source leaders Red Hat and Intel help you navigate digital transformation and modernization with solutions that provide more choice, flexibility, and innovation.
