Heraeus, the family-owned technology concern from Hanau, is a global leading portfolio company. With roots stretching back to 1660, the company originated as a family pharmacy. Today, Heraeus brings together a number of businesses in areas of the environment, electronics, health and industrial applications. 

Over time their data centers and internal infrastructure had grown outdated and the company was faced with three options: either build entirely new facilities, co-locate, or move to the public cloud. Following an in-depth market analysis, the decision was reached to seek a public cloud solution. 

In this case study you will learn:

  • Heraeus is migrating its SAP systems from its own data center to Amazon Web Services (AWS) with the support of Syntax
  • Why Heraeus chose Syntax for this essential cloud migration
  • How over 40 SAP systems were migrated in less than a year 

"Cooperation between Heraeus and Syntax is characterized by a high degree of professionalism and equal partnership. Any issues that arise are resolved calmly and quickly, with no blame games.”
