How Business Leaders Can Drive More Innovation and a Better ROI with Application Managed Services for their companies

Outsourcing the management, support and maintenance of SAP applications to an Application Managed Services provider can alleviate the time, resource and budget constraints that hold businesses back from realizing their digital transformation goals. Find out how business leaders can drive more innovation by leveraging the expertise of managed service providers in the white paper “Realize the full power of SAP for Digital Transformation”.

Over the past 18 months, the pandemic has forced many CEOs to rethink their digital transformation plans for their business —including their adoption of SAP cloud technologies and move to S/4HANA. Instead, companies shifted their focus to “keeping the lights on” activities, prioritizing day-to-day maintenance and operations over strategic business transformation initiatives.


Today, as the economy begins to recover, businesses are ready to hit the restart button on their digital transformation projects—and modernizing their SAP solution is a big step in that journey.

Challenges of Modernizing SAP Environments


Your SAP environment lies at the heart of your business—fueling revenue-generating processes, business operations and customer service strategies. Modernizing that environment amplifies your SAP solution, enabling greater efficiency, more capabilities and a faster pace of innovation.

Even with these benefits in mind, however, maintaining your business-critical SAP applications can be complex, time-consuming and expensive—and as a result, taking the next step towards modernization and true digital transformation can feel out of reach.

For many, the solution is to outsource parts—or all—of the SAP environment to an application managed services provider. By tapping into third-party resources and expertise, your IT team can offload the day-to-day management of business-critical applications while the service provider ensures maximum performance and ROI. This then frees up your team and resources to focus on strategic initiatives, innovation and digital transformation goals.


Whether you are in the process of optimizing your current SAP environment or mapping out your journey to SAP S/4 HANA, an experienced partner with deep SAP expertise can act as an extension of your team—helping you significantly improve application performance and results along the way.
