SAP is now a cloud company at its core. However, as SAP S/4HANA Cloud continues to mature, we're seeing many customers begin their SAP cloud journey from periphery systems such as SAP Ariba e-procurement, Hybris Commerce Cloud, SuccessFactors, Concur or the latest Experience Management (XM) platform from Qualtrics.
SAP Cloud Platform Portal can be the central access point for employees, customers and partners, and may be a better launching pad to the SAP cloud. It enables you to bring your core on-premises systems into the cloud and lead with user experience (UX) instead of the entire infrastructure and databases. Other SAP Cloud Platform Portal features include a personalized UX, app integration for both SAP and non-SAP apps, role-based access and the ability to publish content.
Starting your cloud migration with an initial focus on UX will help ease the transition by delighting users and getting them excited to make the change.
By strategically moving your UX first, you will set up your enterprise for agile digital innovation. You start with a sound hybrid cloud architecture model, which the majority of large enterprises are expected to utilize over the next decade. Upon successful implementation, you will set the stage for a seamless transition of your more complex core systems to the cloud.
Think of the SAP Cloud Platform Portal as your entry point to the digital enterprise of the future in the cloud.
