Syntax and AWS SAP Migration Factory Launch to Support Customers in Migrating and Modernizing their SAP Systems on AWS

MONTREAL — July 27, 2021 — Syntax, a leading provider of cloud-managed ERP services, today announced the launch of the Syntax and Amazon Web Services (AWS) SAP Migration Factory. In close collaboration with AWS, Syntax brings over 40 years of SAP experience to give customers the confidence they need to quickly, securely and cost-effectively migrate their mission critical SAP and integrated applications on AWS.

According to a survey from Syntax and America’s SAP Users’ Group (ASUG), 77% of SAP customers have yet to move their applications to the cloud, often from fear of downtime, data loss, wasting time or revenue, and potential disruption of day-to-day operations. Syntax is a trusted source within the AWS Partner Network (APN) that ensures customers mitigate these risks and more.

The same Syntax and ASUG survey found that 30% of SAP customers already operating in the cloud struggle with a lack of detailed cloud strategy. To combat these issues, experienced Syntax consultants work closely with their customers to develop and implement strategic plans for those companies’ specific needs to successfully migrate or modernize their SAP systems while also retiring their technical debt.

“When moving or modernizing mission-critical SAP applications on AWS, many organizations will jump right in without first aligning the migration to their business strategy,” said Ryan Etinson, CEO of Syntax Americas. “At the other end of the spectrum, though, you’ll find customers paralyzed with indecision when faced with so many options to enable their SAP strategy. The Syntax and AWS SAP Migration Factory bridges this divide by addressing your company’s specific needs.”

Syntax is SAP certified in various operations, including application, cloud and infrastructure, hosting, and SAP HANA. As an APN Advanced Consulting Partner, the company has more than 200 AWS technical and business accreditations and 46 AWS technical certifications. Recently, Syntax achieved AWS SAP Competency Partner status. Syntax was the first global provider to hold the Application Management Services (AMS) certification for SAP S/4HANA. As an early SAP adopter and customer, Syntax has provided managed cloud hosting services for SAP customers throughout the proliferation of its Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software in the cloud. Syntax offers an array of SAP services, including upgrades, cloud hosting, application managed services, and ongoing support from SAP-certified experts.

Companies can leverage these qualifications and Syntax’s more than four decades of SAP experience to achieve their specific business goals with SAP. To learn more about how Syntax helps businesses achieve their goals by migrating or modernizing their SAP solutions on AWS, please visit:
