“Through our close partnership with Alibaba, we are deploying SAP S/4HANA Cloud and SAP Cloud Platform on the leading IaaS platform in China, to help Chinese enterprises speed up their migration to the Cloud, and spur their innovation and transformation,” said Stefan Wagner, Global Senior Vice President, SAP. “Delivering on our strategy ‘in China for China’, SAP runs several co-engineering activities with Alibaba, combining our strengths to deliver solutions tailored to the Chinese market.”
SAP Cloud Platform
As an open and agile application and integration platform, SAP Cloud Platform enables Alibaba Cloud’s customers to extend their current business solutions, build new applications and integrate with third-party technologies efficiently. Alibaba Group and SAP entered into the strategic partnership in 2016, with a goal of jointly delivering enterprise-grade cloud computing services to companies in China. The alliance aims to accelerate the introduction and adoption of enterprise-class cloud computing across multiple industries to help businesses accelerate their digital transformation.
