Google Cloud Platform to Support SAP Hana Managed Service, App Toolkit

June 06, 2018 / Jaikumar Vijayan

A new managed SAP HANA service and SAP Cloud Platform software development kit continue efforts by both companies to make their technologies more interoperable. Google this week announced several updates to Cloud Platform partnership it entered into with SAP more than a year ago.  The updates—like the partnership itself—are designed to help enterprises more easily run SAP workloads on Google's cloud platform. They include a new managed service for SAP HANA, new Google virtual machine instances certified for SAP HANA use and new integrations with Google's G Suite collection of productivity apps. In separate but related news, SAP this week launched a new SAP Cloud Platform Software Development Kit (SDK) for Android that Google officials said would allow developers to build native Android applications based on SAP services. The announcements, at SAP's annual SAPPHIRE NOW 2018 conference this week in Orlando, broaden existing efforts by the two companies to make their respective technologies more interoperable. Google and SAP launched the strategic partnership in March 2017. At the time the two companies described the effort as designed to better integrate Google's cloud and machine learning technologies with SAP's enterprise resource planning (ERP) suite and other applications.
