Microsoft and Lemongrass take aim at legacy tech

Lemongrass and Microsoft have established a strategic, multi-year partnership that will assist large and midmarket Enterprises to modernise their legacy SAP systems. The new agreement, announced last week, extends the already existing partnership between the companies, and will focus on the co-development of SAP-centric solutions.

In addition, Lemongrass will scale its Lemongrass Cloud Platform to be fully integrated with Microsoft Cloud globally, which will provide SAP customers with the opportunity to benefit from the combined power of both Microsoft’s flexible computing platform and Lemongrass’s services and automation. Both teams will closely engage with one another on product and solution enhancements.

As further proof of its commitment to Microsoft, Lemongrass has also announced the acquisition of Wharfedale Technologies, a technology consulting firm specialising in the migration and management of SAP on Microsoft Cloud.

Speaking on the partnership news, Joao Couto, commercial partner lead at Microsoft said: “We are delighted to have Lemongrass as a strategic partner. Our shared goal is to simplify the process of running SAP systems for customers, from migration through long-term support

“Having gotten to know Lemongrass well through the partnership development process, we are confident they are the right choice to invest in and work with to grow our SAP on Microsoft business.”

Mike Rosenbloom, CEO of Lemongrass added: “We are very excited about our strategic partnership with Microsoft and collaborating with their engineering and sales teams. Lemongrass and Microsoft have a common vision to drive a superior SAP operating experience and enable the highest level of agility and innovation in a secure, trusted cloud environment.”
