I get some puzzled looks when I tell people we’ll be out of the office at SAPPHIRE NOW in June. People wonder what Microsoft is doing at an SAP conference—aren’t we supposed to be competitors?
Competition aside, the reality is that more and more enterprise companies run SAP and Microsoft infrastructure side-by-side, and we’ve been working with SAP for years to deliver solutions that will help our customers get the most value from their entire technology investment.
Just as we’ve been working with SAP to ensure that their solutions run smoothly on our platforms—including SAP on SQL and now SAP on Azure—we’re also looking for innovative ways to help companies get the most from their ERP systems. For many companies, that means adopting a two-tier model for ERP, with SAP continuing to support core administrative processes and adding Microsoft Dynamics AX as a platform for operational ERP.
Microsoft Dynamics AX enables companies to enhance and extend their existing SAP implementation in several ways: consolidating applications, managing specific business processes, and supporting subsidiaries and business units at the departmental level, while maintaining central management of financials and core administrative processes in SAP.
Microsoft Dynamics AX has already helped many SAP customers realize the benefits of increased agility, fast time to value, and reduced TCO, and we may be able to help you, too. So, while you’re at SAPPHIRE, why not stop by the Microsoft booth to say hello and talk about ways SAP and Microsoft are working together for your success.
Join us at Sapphire in Orlando at booth 700 to learn more about ways Microsoft Dynamics AX and SAP work together to deliver end-to-end ERP.
