The Hybrid Dilemma – into the technical debate! 


Nicholas Miles, Senior Solution Architect in Analytics, Delaware

Tia-Marie Meriez, MS Reporting and BI Analyst, Delaware


A key part of developing a data strategy is ensuring data quality and context is retained and that the insights are delivered in a timely manner to everyone who needs it. 

Fundamental to this is deciding if and when the data should be moved, should a cloud-based strategy be private or public cloud? Does that lead into a combination of technical solutions, for example SAP but with storage on Azure? Then add in do we use, for example, an SAP or Microsoft front end or do we look for a more specific Analytics application to deliver the data to the end users? And then there is AI…. 

In this session, through the lens of both an SAP and Microsoft estate, we will look at the options of how to work through these questions before the project starts to ensuring the successful outcome of a data and analytics project and laying a strong data foundation for the future. 


  • When to move to the Cloud and then should it be Private or Public Could? 
  • How to navigate the multi-vendor hybrid solutions, SAP and, or Microsoft? Adding in a 3rd party product? 
  • How to manage a hybrid estate? 

We will aim to answer these questions and more by looking at how some of Delaware’s customers have made their decisions, with a little help from Delaware!
