ESRI is a global leader in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and location intelligence. Thousands of companies across the world, from startups to many of the Fortune 500, use Esri solutions to enable better decision making. Like many companies, Esri was looking to transform its internal ERP to continue delivering critical GIS solutions to customers globally especially in light of increased demand during Covid-19. In response to these needs, Esri made the decision to move to SAP S/4HANA on Microsoft Azure by leveraging Vnomic automated engineered SAP landscape delivery and governance as a service solution.

Please join ASUG as we host an interactive event with leaders from Esri and Vnomic to explore key learnings on the business drivers that Esri faced, how they made the decisions around moving to SAP on Azure, and the important business & technical considerations during their journey.  Learn how Esri is looking to optimize its ERP by leveraging enterprise-ready innovation, reliability, and agility in the cloud.

Don’t miss this opportunity to take part in the discussion and hear insights from your industry peers, regarding the key factors that you may also face as you make the own move to running business-critical workloads on the cloud.

As an attendee, you will have opportunities to provide feedback and ask questions throughout the event. Please take advantage of this chance to engage with us during this dialogue.
