In a bid to extend its service offerings to Europe, Chennai-based information and communications technology (ICT) company Sify Technologies has signed a deal with London-based cloud and software services provider ZSAH Managed Technology Services.

As part of the partnership, both organisations will introduce a broader consulting practice in the UK market, according to a statement issued by Sify. 

The partnership will combine ZSAH’s private cloud infrastructure in the UK with Sify’s experience on Amazon Web Services, said Mark Ryder, managing director, Sify Europe. 

Ryder added the partnership would help businesses easily migrate from the SAP ERP (enterprise resource planning) to the newer SAP S/4 HANA platform easier. The deal would also facilitate faster adoption of the S4 Hana platform on AWS.

The combined resources can also ease migration of multiple databases at scale, founding director of ZSAH Amir Hashmi said. 

Sify Technologies provides a range of technology solutions and services across telecom networks, data centres, cloud, managed services and systems integration. The company has a presence in over 1,600 cities across the US, UK and Singapore. 

ZSAH was founded in 2002 by Hashmi and provides software engineering and professional services to enterprises in sectors like energy, pharmaceuticals and financial services.

With enterprises increasingly adopting digital solutions, several software companies that offer systems, applications and products in data processing have expanded their services across geographies.

In May, Paris-based technology services company Capgemini helped building materials manufacturer Louisiana-Pacific Corp migrate its business processes to AWS’ platform. 

German software giant SAP announced in May that it would partner cloud platforms Microsoft Azure and AWS to push its S/4 HANA offering to the cloud in a project codenamed Embrace

Last year, SAP launched its S/4 HANA offering in the Indian market. The software company said the Indian version would come bundled with added features such as GST (goods and services tax) vendor classification, GST registration number maintenance and invoice generation for particular logistics scenarios.
