The benefits of digital transformation are vast, however, it opens up a whole new level of security concerns. As threat actors evolve their tactics and target business-critical applications specifically, CISOs face an even greater challenge of keeping their companies safe.
According to reports, nearly 70% of enterprises were moving mission-critical business functions and processes to the cloud before the pandemic. In today’s new normal, that number has skyrocketed. Organizations increasingly rely on mission-critical cloud applications, such as SAP SuccessFactors and Salesforce, to help modernize business practices, streamline processes, and provide increased flexibility to adapt to work-from-anywhere initiatives.
Security and compliance continue to be the top concerns for migrating to SAP S/4HANA in the cloud, even above performance, flexibility and cost. That’s because, ultimately, it’s still your responsibility to ensure the security of your data and applications—even if they reside in someone else’s datacenter. Fortunately, a strong cloud provider and the right tools can take security from a project roadblock to an accelerator, while keeping your data and applications protected along the way.
Onapsis, in collaboration with The Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), a not-for-profit, organization dedicated to defining and raising awareness of best practices to help ensure a secure cloud computing environment, has completed The Critical Controls Implementation for SAP white paper.
In this post, we’ll explore some considerations for cloud migrations that help ensure security and success.
How do you define downtime? In the world of IT, downtime is defined as “time during which a machine, especially a computer, is out of action or unavailable for use.” In a pre-cloud or pre-SAAS era, that definition provided an acceptable description of what actually took place. Then, everything changed.
The cloud trend is unstoppable. More and more organizations are moving their on-premises business-critical applications to the cloud and starting to use native cloud solutions like SuccessFactors, Salesforce or Workday.
There is no doubt that moving an ERP system to the cloud is a massively complex project for any organization. The business-critical applications that run your business are most often supported by an ERP system such as SAP or the Oracle E-Business Suite. The success of this project is essential to the success of your organization.
