W.L. Gore & Associates, Inc. (Gore) a materials science leader, ran and managed their SAP S/4HANA on a leading public cloud platform. However, Gore’s existing cloud platform was no longer in-line with their cloud strategy. Looking to the future and strategic alignment, Gore aimed for a more optimal solution, leading to a comprehensive re-evaluation of their entire cloud strategy, including their future SAP roadmap.
Recognizing the need for a robust solution, SAP, Microsoft, and MSRcosmos were enlisted to spearhead the intricate task of transitioning both SAP S/4HANA environments to Azure. As the journey unfolded, SAP’s recommendation to embrace SAP RISE on Azure marked a pivotal turning point, positioning MSRcosmos as the cornerstone for a successful migration and modernization.
Gore’s IT Leadership expressed clear confidence in Azure’s architecture, stability, and cost competitiveness. The platform emerged as the natural choice for their ambitious transition to SAP RISE on Azure.
MSRcosmos’ proposal, crafted with competitive precision, resonated seamlessly with Gore’s organizational objectives, delivering not just cost-efficiency but a comprehensive future-proof solution.
“At Gore, we view innovation as a collaborative process, and we applied that spirit to designing our SAP landscape,” says Tom McKee, Gore’s Global IT and Transformation Leader. “In a strategic move to align with SAP’s future roadmap and our cloud strategy, and crack even greater potential, we partnered with Microsoft and MSRcosmos to embark on a transformative cloud journey. MSRcosmos’ deep SAP and Azure expertise and understanding of our goals guided us effectively to Azure, enabling a successful SAP RISE implementation. This milestone not only positions us for long-term agility and cost-efficiency but also establishes a foundation for continuous innovation within our SAP environment.”
