Infrastructure Project Manager SAP & Azure

Experience with SAP Basis


AirFrance KLM is undertaking a large transformation the domain of its core IT Operations by transitioning from it’s privately owned datacenters in Valbonne, Toulouse and Amsterdam to cloud based hosting. This cloud based hosting can be either at Azure, Google cloud or internal cloud.

The application portfolio for this migration is split in three major chunks – SAP, Data analytics and “other”. Where the primary target for “other” is Azure, for Data analitics is Google cloud and for SAP is under investigation to be targeted at either public cloud or Azure. 

The move to cloud is combined with an upgrade of internal security policies and elimination of technical debt. Taking on board technical roadmaps where feasible. The approach for SAP is to target a tech-only migration for the core systems (all ECC most on HANA db, some on Oracle db) with the ambition to bring SAP Operations at a higher level by exploiting the capabilities of cloud.   Migrations to S4/HANA or Oracle to HANA db are considered out of scope due to impact on business roadmaps. The scope of the SAP migration is about 54 SAP landscapes, with approx. 3500 interfaces.
