This document introduces a case study to analyze and solve a delay problem for product deliveries that a wholesaler has struggled with since its operations began. The problem identification outlines modern cloud technology alternatives and then proposes a solution to support this company’s logistics operations in its central warehouse to enhance the delivery time. The result explains how to effectively send products to final customers using SAP and Azure Integration for SAP Workloads to support Enterprise Information System processes. Business data consolidation will be possible in a reliable technology platform with such integration. Thus, the challenge is to deal with both systems and offer the most innovative solution to meet the customers’ expectations. On the one hand, SAP will support business processes management. On the other hand, Azure will support the cloud infrastructure resources and the interconnection with the LAN gateway. Regarding the final solution’s coverage, we consider the shipping of goods is for cities inside the urban perimeter to check the accomplishment factors for last-mile delivery. Besides, this research uses a cloud integration approach to allow: (i) Simplifying pre-built integration. (ii) Learning best practices based on successful integrations. (iii) Leveraging SAP SaaS applications into Azure SaaS and PaaS applications. (iv) Redefining user experience. (v) Integrating deployment flexibility. Consequently, in the end, it will be valued the ease of combining this intercloud solution with ML, BI, and Big Data Analytics to meet the delivery requirements and optimize the whole service.
