Understanding RISE with SAP
On its part, RISE with SAP gives businesses cloud-powered SAP solutions while taking the guesswork and complexity of multiple contractual agreements out of enterprise planning. Bundled products are offered at a single price and under one contract, giving businesses the ability to easily manage their Service Level Agreement (SLA), operations and issue management without signing contracts for each.
RISE with SAP is what SAP terms business transformation as-a-service. Their intention is to help you move your ERP into a cloud-based service platform. What they offer is that is one contract and SAP will take care of the responsibility. You have a choice, however. You can either go with SAP, deploy on a public cloud, or opt for the private cloud edition.
As a technology enabler, it is absolutely important for us to give customer the power of choice. We have various options with customisable commercial options and requirements for licensing, delivery, and operations. Here are some quick use cases, just to give you an idea:
- SAP S/4HANA Public Cloud: For organisations ready to embrace the future of ERP with a modern new SaaS implementation that comes with pre-defined processes.
- SAP S/4HANA Private Cloud: Designed to give businesses innovation and cloud value while allowing them to retain their existing investments by converting existing systems.
- SAP S/4HANA On-Premise: For customers that require maximum, control of their ERP systems, typically deployed within their data centres.
The value of RISE with SAP is its simplicity. Traditional SAP ECC environment might result in customers dealing with up to five different contractual agreements. You need to deal with your infrastructure, the SAP implementation, the software support, AMS, as well as the technical managed services – so as many as five different vendors.
On the other hand, organisations that go with RISE with SAP can access the pertinent solutions, tools, and services, including the S/4HANA Cloud Suite license through a single contract for a significantly shorter time to value.
