Symmetry today announced that Sofigate has selected Symmetry as its cloud hosting services partner for enterprises that are migrating from on-premise SAP environments to SAP HANA and SAP S/4HANA in the cloud. Sofigate is a leading business technology and digital transformation company in Northern Europe and a member of United VARs, the world’s largest alliance of SAP channel partners.
Through the partnership, Sofigate is able to offer its customers Symmetry’s cloud hosting services along with its IT management and business consulting services as a single, comprehensive solution for customers migrating SAP and other ERP software to the cloud. Sofigate and Symmetry have already begun working with a leading media company in Finland to migrate its SAP environment from their current infrastructure provider to S/4HANA. This will be hosted on Symmetry’s cloud platform and paired with on-going SAP management services from Sofigate.
“As more enterprises migrate their SAP environments to the cloud, they want a single, end-to-end partner that can help them navigate the complex business, technology and process changes cloud migrations require,” said Pasi Mantila, Head of Sofigate’s Business Technology. “Symmetry’s best-in-class hosting services, combined with a platform certified for SAP HANA and S/4HANA workloads, allows us to meet that need with an unmatched level of service and expertise.”

Backed by next-generation monitoring and 99.999% uptime Service Level Agreements, this partnership provides customers the infrastructure flexibility and local support their mission-critical applications require.
