“SAP is one of the largest enterprise application providers and is used by the majority of our customers. Receiving the SAP certification further indicates Telstra is delivering on its commitment to provide Australian organisations with a cloud computing infrastructure that adheres to the stringent requirements of the world’s leading cloud players,” Mr Pratley said.

We are very confident in Telstra’s ability to deliver infrastructure services to our customers, enabling the orchestration of critical SAP business applications in the cloud.  In short, this means customers can now consume SAP with greater flexibility, speed to value and a lower total cost of ownership.”
Telstra has consulted with more than 160 of its enterprise customers to learn what enterprise applications they are using and how they can benefit from hosting these applications in the cloud.
“By optimising our cloud services portfolio for SAP applications and services, our customers will benefit from increased flexibility to meet changing market demands, faster provisioning of business resources and access to highly reliable cloud architecture,” Mr Pratley said.
