Microsoft provides technology backbone for Woolworths’ SAP solutions Featured

By

Microsoft is to supply the backbone cloud technologies for Woolworths’ SAP solutions as the retailer migrates its current SAP footprint to Azure, paving the way for the upgrade path to SAP S/4HANA.

“At Woolworths, we’re harnessing the cloud to provide evergreen infrastructures that foster innovation and improve speed to market,” said John Hunt, CIO, Woolworths.

“Our cloud transformation is making work simpler for our teams, streamlining our supply chains and improving the customer experiences across our vast network of stores and online channels.

“Azure is a trusted, resilient and high performing cloud platform, supporting our ongoing digital transformation and we are confident it will provide us with the performance and flexibility required to meet our ever evolving SAP requirements in providing an exceptional customer experience.”

Steven Worrall, managing director, Microsoft Australia said; “Microsoft is honoured to have been selected as one of Woolworths’ transformation partners, and trusted to run mission-critical applications such as SAP in addition to the existing online footprint.

“The cloud transformation underway at Woolworths will expedite the business for ongoing innovation, for agility and continued growth. Woolworths’ decision reflects our joint commitment to a customer-first mindset and to support their cloud transformation.”

Damien Bueno, president and managing director, SAP Australia and New Zealand said; “Woolworths has one of the largest SAP environments in the world, which supports business-critical processes, including retail operations and finance. Migrating SAP applications and platforms to Azure, including SAP ERP and SAP Cloud Platform, will enable this great business to innovate faster than ever. In time, this will also support Woolworths’ move to SAP S/4HANA.”

Microsoft says that Woolworths is the first company in the Asia Pacific Japan region, and one of the first in the world to leverage the Embrace initiative – “again reinforcing its pioneering approach to digital transformation”.

“Woolworths is a diverse group of retail businesses whose purpose is to create better experiences together for a better tomorrow. It is Australia’s largest retailer serving more than 29 million customers each week online and in-store.

“With a physical footprint of 3,000 stores, the company employs more than 200,000 people and is a trusted business partner to thousands of suppliers,” Microsoft concluded.

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
