Release date- 22102013 - Wayne, Pa.- SunGard Availability Services, a leading provider of information availability through managed IT, cloud and recovery services, announced today it has completed the full migration of Advanced Energy's SAP software landscape to the SunGard Availability Services enterprise cloud environment.

Core SAP software applications are used for managing the company's human resources, product life-cycle management, sales, services, global manufacturing, operations, trade compliance, risk compliance, internal and external portals and finance and cost accounting.
