Lemongrass | January 19, 2023
Lemongrass, a company that specializes in moving SAP systems to the cloud, just announced that it will work with Florida Crystals Corporation (FCC), a cane-sugar company based in West Palm Beach, Florida. The collaboration will give the FCC access to Lemongrass's cloud technology, which will allow them to run their SAP systems in the most efficient and cost-effective way.
The partnership resulted in the migration of FCC's SAP systems to Amazon Web Services (AWS), which began in 2021 and is now complete. Lemongrass continues to provide innovation and ongoing support for the FCC's SAP landscape. This collaboration is exemplary of how companies are using cloud technology to help modernize their businesses.
Mike Rosenbloom, CEO at Lemongrass, said, “We are honored to work with a true industry pioneer like FCC, whose values around sustainability and business efficiency are setting a high standard for their industry.” He added, “We look forward to a continued partnership with Florida Crystals as the company expands its use of SAP on AWS.”
FCC chose to move to the cloud to save money and simplify its applications, as well as to lay the groundwork for future changes. The move to AWS aligns with FCC's goals of being environmentally and socially conscious in their business decisions and will also save them money. FCC and Lemongrass worked together to move their SAP systems to the cloud. The move was finished in 2021, and since then, Lemongrass has been supporting FCC's SAP landscape.
