In this session, Cognizant & Orica will discuss how the technology architecture design of SAP S/4HANA can be future proofed on Public Cloud (Microsoft Azure). We will also discuss about Orica's journey of enabling the Digital Core with SAP S/4HANA where the world’s first iSCSI based High Availability Solution built for SAP on Azure Platform was deployed. We will emphasize how a strong collaboration between the customer, SAP, SI Vendor, Software Provider and Public Cloud provider is very essential for success of such as large engagement. We will also discuss how enterprises now have a significant leeway to leverage a consumption based pricing model not just for the infrastructure but also for the application and systems management using Managed Platform as a Service approach. In addition to this, we will provide overview of our integrated solutions with other SAP SaaS products and importance of Cloud Lifecycle Management through Cloud Orchestration layer.
