Filderstadt, October 05, 2020 - High competence and numerous successful customer projects in the SAP on Microsoft Azure environment were the decisive factors for the award "SAP on Microsoft Azure Advanced Specialization", which All for One Group SE has now received.

The successful move of the SAP systems of Flowserve Corporation, one of the world's largest manufacturers of pumps, valves and seals with more than 17,500 employees in over 50 countries, to the Azure Cloud platform is just one of many examples of the All for One Group's great competence in the SAP and Microsoft environment. The digital transformation journey of Flowserve, to standardize the very heterogeneous IT infrastructure that has grown organically from many subsidiaries and to merge processes, is closely accompanied by All for One. "All for One is really what you call a one-stop-shop - with great expertise for both SAP and Microsoft. We got the infrastructure hosted in Azure and the same service levels we already knew. This package made it very easy for us to move into cloud-based services," said Jacky Kugler, IT Manager and SAP Corporate Infrastructure Architect at Flowserve.

Microsoft & SAP - All for One combines the best of both worlds

"During the transformation, we support our customers with our digital expertise in all fields of activity - from new work to intelligent ERP, from customer experience to IT operations - and combine the best that Microsoft and SAP have to offer. The fact that we do this excellently is confirmed by customers and manufacturers alike. And the combination of "SAP Platinum Partner Status" and "SAP on Microsoft Azure Advanced Specialization", which is unique in Germany, speaks for itself," explains Michael Scherf, who is responsible for Managed Services in the All for One Group management team.

"The "SAP on Microsoft Azure Advanced Specialization" distinguishes the most competent partners when it comes to migrating SAP business applications to Azure. The All for One Group has clearly demonstrated that it has both the know-how and the experience to provide customers with a comprehensive and professional SAP to cloud managed service," said Gavriella Schuster, corporate vice president, One Commercial Partner (OCP) at Microsoft Corp.

New subscription model - All for One sought-after innovation partner of SAP & Microsoft

With its subscription model "Conversion/4", which was only launched in June 2020, the All for One Group is also a sought-after innovation partner of SAP and Microsoft. The innovative support concept and pricing model offers SAP user companies SAP S/4HANA Conversion and SAP services including operation in the Microsoft Azure Cloud at a fixed monthly price. Three configurable subscription packages are available to help companies make the transition to SAP S/4HANA easier and include Microsoft Azure as a platform for SAP systems.

Innovative model - Conversion/4 subscription with four central modules

"For a fixed monthly fee, our customers receive four central building blocks: technical conversion to SAP S/4HANA, an all-round service package for SAP S/4HANA including cloud infrastructure, operation and application management. In addition, there is the optimization of business processes in line with requirements and, as a fourth module, ongoing innovation, for example through included release upgrades. And as far as the platform is concerned, with Conversion/4 we are clearly relying on Azure," Michael Scherf continues about the new model of the All for One Group.
