Lemongrass, the leading provider of software-enabled services to companies that want to run SAP in the cloud, has launched its multi-cloud strategy having signed partnerships with Microsoft Cloud and Google Cloud Platform. Lemongrass will now offer its highly automated SAP cloud migration and managed services to companies using one or more of the top hyperscale cloud platforms.
Since 2010, Lemongrass has been synonymous with helping organisations run SAP on Amazon Wed Services and is widely regarded as the leader in this space with nearly 6,000 SAP servers under management and more than 300,000 SAP users.
Knowing that enterprise customers want the freedom to choose the cloud environment that is best for them, and that multi-cloud is the future for most large enterprises, Lemongrass chose to expand its portfolio to include other hyperscale platforms.
“We remain committed to AWS – Lemongrass is an AWS Premier Consulting Partner and AWS-accredited Managed Service Provider – but now we’ll support customers who want to run on Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform too,” said Mike Rosenbloom, CEO of Lemongrass.
“Helping our customers get to where they want to be has always been our top priority. In fact, this mentality is baked into the DNA of our business. Today marks an important step in a new journey to be even more flexible when it comes to serving and delighting our customers.”
The company intends to position itself as the preferred provider for running SAP and its dependent applications in the cloud on their customers’ cloud of choice. Their core focus will remain on SAP but will now include a broader range of non-SAP business systems – particularly those that typically get included as part of an SAP cloud transformation initiative.
Lemongrass’s customers in the Americas, EMEA and APAC span the life sciences, pharmaceutical, public sector, banking and insurance, utilities, oil and gas, telecommunications, retail, logistics service providers, manufacturing and consumer packaged goods industries. In 2020, the organisation grew approximately 30% – the highest revenue year in its history – and is on track to do so again in 2021.
