The adoption of public clouds is a global trend, driven by huge benefits:
To take advantage of these benefits, operate efficiently and securely in public clouds, it is necessary to develop new ways of working.
All of this is more complex with SAP, since its technical architecture is not optimized for public clouds.
As a result of five years’ experience operating in public clouds, we have developed a service model based on automation that aims at making the most of the cloud’s benefits. Novis Cloud Manager is part of this strategy: a software platform to automate SAP operations in public clouds with high security, agility, and efficiency standards.
Novis Cloud Manager is a multi-cloud tool that supports Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform, with the following features:
