In support of the new Microsoft Azure data centre launch in South Africa, SAP specialist and Microsoft partner EPI-USE Labs has announced an exclusive offer for the first 3 customers, to migrate one non-production SAP system to Azure at no cost - including database replatforming, system subsetting and scrambling if required.

SAP Cloud-Lift for Azure gives established customers an easy way to replatform their complex SAP workloads to Azure, incorporating data privacy as standard, as well as right-sizing and cost optimisation.


As a global company with our roots in South Africa, we are very excited to partner with Microsoft to help the local market in Africa transform their SAP workloads to realise the significant benefits that cloud computing can deliver,” says Paul Snyman, global portfolio owner for Cloud and Managed Services at EPI-USE Labs.
