Microsoft and SAP are organizing an event on May 13, with the aim of promoting the acceleration of the digital transformation of Portuguese companies.
This is yet another joint action by the two organizations, after the announcement in October 2019 of a partnership that aims to simplify and modernize the migration of customers to the Cloud.
SAP & Microsoft will join via streaming, starting at 09H30, and will be introduced by the General Directors of both technologies: Paula Panarra, by Microsoft Portugal, and Luís Urmal Carrasqueira, on the side of SAP Portugal.
The conference will show how organizations can become smart companies and lead innovation, drawing value from a strategic alliance between two market leaders, whose mission is to accelerate and simplify the migration of customers to SAP S / 4HANA on Microsoft Azure.
The initiative will count on the participation of two leading customers, Sonae Fashion and Kennametal, a North American company, dedicated to the production of tools and industrial materials, which have already started their transformation process and will give their testimony about the virtues of this process.
The Portuguese Sonae Fashion of the Sonae group, specialized in retail in the fashion sector, represents brands of clothing, accessories and footwear, for both adults and children. Nuno Miller, CDO/CIO of Sonae Fashion says that this project “is structuring for Sonae Fashion. In a first step, it allows us to consolidate six ERPs distributed in three different Datacenters in a single SAP S / 4HANA system supported on Microsoft Azure, with gains in efficiency of around 20% and with increased resilience and agility. From a business point of view, the use of Microsoft and SAP platforms will allow us to respond to the fashion retail business models, increase value and better user experience ”.
Microsoft and SAP hope with The Embrace Initiative – Accelerating the Intelligent Enterprise Together to inspire Portuguese organizations to think differently, to challenge themselves and transform their business.
