EPI-USE, a groupelephant.com business and one of the world’s leading SAP specialists, announced today that it has signed a strategic collaboration agreement (SCA) with Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS). The collaboration builds on EPI-USE’s already-established relationship with AWS.

In pursuit of a prodigious increase in SAP migrations to AWS, EPI-USE and AWS will benefit from joint investments over the next 5 years under the new SCA.  Initially, the focus will be on migrating SAP workloads to AWS to augment EPI-USE’s existing Windows on AWS, Mendix on AWS, and Kubernetes service areas. In the fullness of time, the relationship with AWS will be expanded to other groupelephant.com brands, based on other software vendor alliance partnerships. 

Under the SCA, EPI-USE Labs’ suite of proprietary SAP-related software utilities, already licensed to over 1200 organizations using SAP worldwide, will be harnessed to dramatically simplify, de-risk and accelerate migration of SAP systems to AWS.  EPI-USE has peerless capability in this arena.  

“EPI-USE has been supporting both AWS services and SAP Basis for the last few months, and their people are very professional and knowledgeable in their respective domains. They were quick to assume responsibility, and proactively shared several recommendations based on AWS and SAP best practice. Overall, we are extremely happy with EPI-USE and looking forward to building a long-term relationship." - Jitendra Kulkarni, IT Enterprise Systems Manager, City of Palo Alto.

“We’re genuinely delighted to be working with AWS, and we see staggering potential for growth in SAP migrations, drawing on our existing client base and beyond,” said Robert Levy, partner-in-charge of the AWS-related business in EPI-USE.

"We are thrilled to advance our long-standing relationship with EPI-USE," said Matt Schwartz, Global Director, SAP Alliance & Partner Network at AWS. "Our shared commitment is innovation and exceptional SAP on AWS outcomes for our shared customers. We support our customers' cloud and modernization journey, with SAP initiatives and strategies that expedite digital transformation and drive success.”
