SAP refresh hardware

SAP customers refresh their hardware every three to five years. With millions of transactions processed a day, systems and databases slow down as they grow. Customers need new servers, storage, and networking equipment to meet the demand.

It is essential to understand where a customer is on their SAP roadmap and when the next hardware refresh is possible. Rather than spending that money to refresh hardware, you have the opportunity to position a move to AWS.
