Many enterprises have implemented Amazon Web Services since it was launched. And, with the development of SAP workloads, firms are looking for ways to migrate and deploy this technology on Amazon Web Services cloud.
Linke helps those companies perform SAP-centric digital transformation strategies like database migration to SAP HANA, new SAP deployments or projects that incorporate SAP systems into Amazon Web Services. Moreover, Linke has also developed the product AWS Connector for SAP, a SAP add-on written in ABAP (Advanced Business Application Programming) language that allows the integration of web-based applications on AWS with SAP systems.
The implementation of AWS software resources in ABAP language enables companies to leverage Amazon's web-based resources as an extension of SAP workloads using the same language and tools and allow full integration into the SAP environment.
Thus, whether a business is using big data, DevOps, Chatbots, IoT or voice-supported applications, it can combine those initiatives with their SAP applications. Also, companies can make the most out of the cloud-based applications.
Today, Linke supports more than 300 SAP instances on AWS with the help of certified engineers from SAP and AWS. Customers such as Ávoris and Barceló Hotel Group have already started using AWS Connector for SAP successfully.
In the case of Ávoris, the add-on enables direct integration with the Ávoris SAP ERP platform for archiving objects. This simplifies the archiving process and also reduces costs by eliminating the need for on-premises archiving infrastructure.
While Barceló Hotel Group has reduced its physical storage needs by more than 800 GB and the backup time to 30% with database maintenance efficiency improving by 20%.
