This book helps SAP architects and SAP Basis administrators deploy and operate SAP S/4HANA systems on the most common public cloud platforms. Market-leading cloud offerings are covered, including Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud. You will gain an end-to-end understanding of the initial implementation of SAP S/4HANA systems on those platforms. You will learn how to move away from the big monolithic SAP ERP systems and arrive at an environment with a central SAP S/4HANA system as the digital core surrounded by cloud-native services.
The book begins by introducing the core concepts of Hyperscaler cloud platforms that are relevant to SAP. You will learn about the architecture of SAP S/4HANA systems on public cloud platforms, with specific content provided for each of the major platforms. The book simplifies the deployment of SAP S/4HANA systems in public clouds by providing step-by-step instructions and helping you deal with the complexity of such a deployment. Content in the book is based on best practices, industry lessons learned, and architectural blueprints, helping you develop deep insights into the operations of SAP S/4HANA systems on public cloud platforms. Reading this book enables you to build and operate your own SAP S/4HANA system in the public cloud with a minimum of effort.
