“Slowly, but surely, enterprises are becoming more proficient in using cloud technology – 68% now consider themselves “intermediate” or “advanced.” – Flexera
In today’s digitally dependent world, mission-critical software has to deliver more than just extreme dependability and high availability.

Entrepreneurs are looking for solutions that are fast enough to meet the demands of real-time operations, flexible enough to adapt quickly to changing business requirements and secure enough to protect valuable data.

Although on-premises SAP ERP Solutions offer stable and predictable performance, they often run on rigid, inflexible and costly infrastructure.

To meet these and other challenges– and as a central element of their digital transformation initiatives– entrepreneurs are migrating some or all of their SAP-based operations to the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud.

In this article, cloud computing experts at VC ERP Consulting, the best SAP Gold Partner in India, give out top 6 reasons to run your mission-critical SAP workloads on AWS.
