It streamlines enterprise planning and provides an accelerated path to cloud-based ERP software like SAP S/4HANA Cloud.
Growing Global Customer Base RISE with SAP has gained traction globally, with over 3,000 companies, including Microsoft, Standard Bank (JO: SBKJ ), and Standard Chartered (LON: STAN ), using it to migrate their ERP systems to the cloud. Vanessa Padiachee, Group CIO for Corporate Function at Standard Bank, stressed the importance of trust in partnerships.
For Standard Bank, continuing its relationship with SAP and Microsoft made sense due to their historical investments in SAP Finance technology and existing workloads on Microsoft Azure.
