The new agreement between SAP and Amazon is super-interesting:
- all SAP apps are already running in the cloud!
- it is a very interesting alliance between two strategic SW vendors that did not have the full stack to encompass the cloud, yet;
- it is an alliance between a lightweight cloud vendor and a powerful and structured ISV with worldwide sales – high complementarities, minimal overlap;
- there are already two major SIs CapGemini & Deloitte to support customers in their cloud integration process.
Do not underestimate the relevance of this agreement, even if the two companies are not boasting it – as the journalist notes.
