For the past decade, the exponential growth of the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning (ML) has seen the emergence of data-intensive applications – also in the SAP world. To accommodate this, organisations have been moving to hyperscalers to expand their abilities to accommodate data growth.
There is no denying that such a move makes sense, but what many companies have found, is that you do need to look at your data and systems differently. Historically the impact of keeping large amounts of data or retaining legacy systems, were rather hidden. Moving to a cloud environment magnifies the associated costs and risks and therefore it requires a fresh look. Not doing this will result in growing costs and problematic migrations.
