  • Recent announcements from SAP and Google Cloud underscore a powerful partnership that is rapidly becoming “more intimate and more successful”, says Cloud Wars;
  • This partnership is attributed to Google Cloud’s CEO, Thomas Kurian.

Google Cloud is partnering up with SAP, a German software corporation that makes enterprise software to manage business operations, to bring their data centers together, as first reported by Cloud Wars, and Eduardo Lopez, Google Cloud’s President in Latin America, confirmed it on his LinkedIn.

According to Cloud Wars, SAP is changing its preferred choice as a cloud computing partner, which used to be Microsoft, to Google. Microsoft has a large, fast-growing and strategic SaaS portfolio, which may present challenges to SAP in the future, while Google Cloud does not. “As much as SAP CEO Christian Klein values the close partnership SAP and Microsoft forged more than a year ago with the ‘Embrace’ program, he is also fiercely determined to protect SAP’s position as the world’s #1 provider of enterprise apps, particularly at this critical juncture as many customers are moving aggressively to the cloud”, it says.
