Running SAP solutions 

Demand for hosted solutions is growing rapidly as customers of all sizes focus on their business, not running their IT.

Offering SAP solutions to customers through a private or public cloud


As an outsourcing or hosting partner, you can offer SAP solutions through a private or public cloud. And you can add your own intellectual property or enhance cloud solutions from SAP with your own industry or line-of-business expertise. 

Offering fully managed, flexible, and scalable packaged cloud software

Partner-managed cloud solutions optimize the way customers consume SAP software while leveraging SAP’s latest cloud innovations. 

Partner managed cloud

You can manage critical business processes for your customers with SAP software delivered through private cloud or public cloud offerings, including SAP SuccessFactors, SAP Fieldglass, SAP Ariba, SAP S/4HANA, or SAP Enable Now solutions. 

Delivery options for partner managed cloud

Private Cloud

For a single, monthly subscription fee for each user, your customers benefit from software, hardware, and support services. Using your own private managed cloud, you can offer SAP solutions that were previously only available on premise and take them into the cloud. In addition, you can extend and develop innovative niche offerings for target markets, bundling your business process outsourcing (BPO) services to deliver enterprise-class solutions.  

Public Cloud

You can license and extend the scope and capabilities of cloud solutions from SAP that are hosted on our public cloud infrastructure. As well as enriching the solutions with your own industry and line-of-business expertise and bundling in your own BPO services, you can offer implementation, management, and support services to give customers a fully tailored solution. 

How does partner managed cloud benefit your customer?

Deliver comprehensive cloud services

Offer deployment and application and infrastructure management services through ongoing maintenance and support and software updates that enable customers to take advantage of our latest technologies.

Build long-term relationships

Become your customers’ trusted advisor as you adapt their software and services to match their changing needs. You can also build your own add-on solutions that extend capabilities to fulfill industry-specific and unique requirements. 

Remove cost as a barrier

Enable customers to pay a single monthly or quarterly subscription fee for each user. This includes software, hardware, service, and support – all provided by you to more customers than you ever imagined possible.
