Google Cloud channel partners have access to more SAP integrations, thanks to the companies’ expanded relationship, announced on Wednesday.
To that end, S/4HANA Cloud software soon will connect with Google Docs and Google Sheets. That means SAP users can pull data directly from the enterprise resource planning platform and manipulate it in two Google Workspace applications.
Philipp Herzig is senior vice president and head of intelligent enterprise and cross architecture at SAP.

“Native integration with Google Docs and Google Sheets has been a common request from many joint customers,” said Herzig. “This integration will further pave the way for people to work collaboratively on any business documents and manage them closely along with their most critical business processes and data managed through SAP, all in the cloud.”
Google Cloud said these latest SAP integrations enable new collaboration use cases and opportunities. For example, users will be able to export and import data between SAP software and Google Docs and Google Sheets for real-time editing and simultaneous collaboration. They also will have clean data to work from because the Google Cloud-SAP pairing will come with version controls. That will keep users from muddying documents and information.
Here’s our most recent list of new products and services that agents, VARs, MSPs and other partners offer.
“The move to hybrid work signals enterprises can no longer rely on legacy tool sets that can create silos and barriers to collaboration,” said Javier Soltero, vice president and general manager at Google Workspace. “With the expansion of our partnership with SAP, these new in-depth integrations will enable employees working in complex datasets within SAP S4/HANA to tap into the real-time collaboration capabilities of Google Workspace, enabling teams to simultaneously access SAP data and more efficiently drive projects forward.”
Google Cloud first plans to target the finance vertical with the new SAP integrations. However, the updated functionality – which will come as standard within S/4HANA Cloud – won’t be available until later this year. SAP is building the Google Workspace capabilities into its Business Technology Platform.
