SAP on Azure Implementation Guide

SAP on Azure Implementation Guide

Author: Nick Morgan, Bartosz Jarkowski Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 21/02/2020

Learn how to migrate your SAP data to Azure simply and successfully. Key Features Learn why Azure is suitable for business-critical systems Understand how to migrate your SAP infrastructure to Azure Use Lift & shift migration, Lift & migrate, Lift & migrate to HANA, or Lift & transform to S/4HANA Book DescriptionCloud technologies have now reached a level where even the most critical business systems can run on them. For most organizations SAP is the key business system. If SAP is unavailable for any reason then potentially your business stops. Because of this, it is understandable that you will be concerned whether such a critical system can run in the public cloud. However, the days when you truly ran your IT system on-premises have long since gone. Most organizations have been getting rid of their own data centers and increasingly moving to co-location facilities. In this context the public cloud is nothing more than an additional virtual data center connected to your existing network. There are typically two main reasons why you may consider migrating SAP to Azure: You need to replace the infrastructure that is currently running SAP, or you want to migrate SAP to a new database. Depending on your goal SAP offers different migration paths. You can decide either to migrate the current workload to Azure as-is, or to combine it with changing the database and execute both activities as a single step. SAP on Azure Implementation Guide covers the main migration options to lead you through migrating your SAP data to Azure simply and successfully. What you will learn Successfully migrate your SAP infrastructure to Azure Understand the security benefits of Azure See how Azure can scale to meet the most demanding of business needs Ensure your SAP infrastructure maintains high availability Increase business agility through cloud capabilities Leverage cloud-native capabilities to enhance SAP Who this book is forSAP on Azure Implementation Guide is designed to benefit existing SAP architects looking to migrate their SAP infrastructure to Azure. Whether you are an architect implementing the migration or an IT decision maker evaluating the benefits of migration, this book is for you.

Can You Hear Me?

Can You Hear Me?

Author: Nick Morgan Format: Hardback Release Date: 30/10/2018

A Washington Post Bestseller Your manual for remote and virtual work Communicating virtually is cool, useful, and now even more ubiquitous and necessary than ever. But we're often reminded that the quality of human connection we experience in many forms of virtual communication is awful. We've all felt disconnected in a video conference, frustrated that we're not getting through on the phone, upset when our email is badly misinterpreted, or anxious that we're being misunderstood. How can we fix this? In this powerful, practical book, communication expert Nick Morgan outlines five big problems with communication in the virtual world—lack of feedback, lack of empathy, lack of control, lack of emotion, and lack of connection and commitment—and shows how to overcome them as we shift to working remotely more and more. Morgan argues that while virtual communication will never be as rich or intuitive as a face-to-face meeting, recent research suggests that we need to learn is to consciously deliver a whole set of cues, both verbal and nonverbal, that we used to deliver unconsciously in the pre-virtual era. He guides us through this important process, providing rules for virtual feedback, an empathy assessment and virtual temperature check, tips for creating trust in a virtual context, and advice for specific digital channels such as email and text, the conference call, Skype, and more. Whether you're an entrepreneur, an independent professional, or a manager in an organization that has more than one office or customers who aren't nearby, Can You Hear Me? is your essential communications manual for twenty-first-century work.

Power Cues

Power Cues

Author: Nick Morgan Format: Hardback Release Date: 13/05/2014

Take control of your communications--before someone else does What if someone told you that your behavior was controlled by a powerful, invisible force? Most of us would be skeptical of such a claim--but it's largely true. Our brains are constantly transmitting and receiving signals of which we are unaware. Studies show that these constant inputs drive the great majority of our decisions about what to do next--and we become conscious of the decisions only after we start acting on them. Many may find that disturbing. But the implications for leadership are profound. In this provocative yet practical book, renowned speaking coach and communication expert Nick Morgan highlights recent research that shows how humans are programmed to respond to the nonverbal cues of others--subtle gestures, sounds, and signals--that elicit emotion. He then provides a clear, useful framework of seven power cues that will be essential for any leader in business, the public sector, or almost any context. You'll learn crucial skills, from measuring nonverbal signs of confidence, to the art and practice of gestures and vocal tones, to figuring out what your gut is really telling you. This concise and engaging guide will help leaders and aspiring leaders of all stripes to connect powerfully, communicate more effectively, and command influence.
