There seems to be an increasing demand for SAP SE (ADR) (NYSE:SAP)‘s software, which is used by a vast number of Fortune 500 companies in managing some of their most vital jobs. Big public cloud vendors and particularly Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) and Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) Google have gone wild in trying to incorporate the celebrated software in their cloud data centers.
Notably, some SAP business software has had massive support from the likes of Microsoft Azure and AWS for a couple of years. The support was fueled by Google, which joined the bandwagon earlier in the year and perhaps the reason why the tech giant will want to invest more in SAP’s software.
But SAP has new public cloud offerings on the horizon
Even with all the hype surrounding SAP’s software, the company has stated its interest in making its own SAP Cloud. This will particularly be beneficial to SAP database customers and will have massive support from Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web, which will provide new infrastructure services.
Microsoft’s infrastructure will come with over 4TB of RAM but will be primarily be used by SAP customers.
The news about SAP’s intention of having its own SAP Cloud was made public at SAP’s Sapphire tech conference in Orlando. The move is expected to entice corporate developers into building and distributing custom software, which will run on all three of those public clouds. This will be done through the use of Cloud Foundry technology.
All big cloud players will get a piece of the action
Constellation Research analyst Holger Mueller observes that all the big cloud players are after the SAP business. The observation comes after Google’s massive praise of SAP products. Interestingly, SAP is being generous in making sure all these players deliver thus it will involve them in its business.
In other news together Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) has initiated a public preview of its platform-as-a-service offering on Azure. This is in collaboration with SAP and will include incorporation of SAP Cloud Platform Identity Authentication Services.
In the meantime, SAP’s stock closed at $104.69 witnessing an increase of $1.18 or 1.14%
