Google Cloud and SAP are expanding their partnership and have unveiled new integrations between Google Workspace and SAP’s flagship cloud ERP, SAP S/4HANA Cloud.

The native integrations will allow customers to connect core SAP software with the collaborative capabilities of Google Docs and Google Sheets to change the face of working across the enterprise.

Google Docs and Google Sheets integrated with SAP S/4HANA Cloud will enable new business capabilities, uses cases and opportunities for collaborative tasks within both small and large organizations. Customers will benefit from the efficiency of ready integration, be able to export and import data between SAP software and Google Docs and Google Sheets for instant access, and be given the confidence of having a clean data source due to the one-step integration.

The initial set of features are planned to be included as standard functionality in SAP S/4HANA Cloud later this year and will be built on the SAP Business Technology Platform.

Philipp Herzig, senior vice president and head of intelligent enterprise and cross architecture at SAP, said: “This integration will further pave the way for people to work collaboratively on any business documents and manage them closely along with their most critical business processes and data managed through SAP – all in the cloud.”

Javier Soltero, vice president and general manager at Google Workspace, said: “The move to hybrid work signals enterprises can no longer rely on legacy toolsets that can create silos and barriers to collaboration. With the expansion of our partnership with SAP, these new in-depth integrations will enable employees working in complex data sets within SAP S/4HANA to tap into the real-time collaboration capabilities of Google Workspace, enabling teams to simultaneously access SAP data and more efficiently drive projects forward.”
