What Are the Benefits of RISE with SAP?

RISE with SAP is designed to make cloud adoption as simple as possible. As your service partner, we help you choose the right setup and make it work for you. The key benefits of RISE with SAP include:

  • Cloud-based ‘as a Service’ model

A key advantage of the cloud is its modularity and simplicity – RISE with SAP delivers just that. You receive a curated starter pack with the essential SAP cloud applications bundled into a subscription-based contract and provided to you as a service.

This means you no longer need to put together your solution individually and avoid piecemeal license and maintenance purchases. On top of that, you are free to access the individual components at the time that suits you best. Thanks to the subscription model, you avoid high upfront investments and only pay for what you actually use. This gives you maximum flexibility in designing your journey to the cloud.

  • Best practices for industries and lines of business

The RISE with SAP components can be tailored to meet the specific needs of your industry and your lines of business (LoB) for optimal results.

With the so-called ‘Industry Packages’, SAP delivers additional business capabilities and innovations to support industry-specific processes. As RISE with SAP customer, you are free to decide which of these products are particularly helpful for your processes, and then adopt them in your environment.

  • Financial leeway

Another advantage of RISE with SAP is greater financial leeway. The subscription model allows you to avoid large upfront capital investments and offers you a certain financial flexibility. This way you have more room to drive business innovation using the provided services.

In addition, RISE with SAP customers receive further benefits through the packaged approach, such as a discount on Industry or LoB Packages.

  • Innovation and intelligent technologies

RISE with SAP includes intelligent technologies and automation for many core process areas that can be used instantly. This allows your employees to focus on further developing the business instead of worrying about recurring routine tasks. In this way, you achieve a new level of efficiency – especially valuable in times of acute shortages of skilled workers, which are currently affecting companies in many industries.

1. Cloud ERP

At the heart of RISE with SAP is the digital core, SAP S/4HANA Cloud. SAP S/4HANA Cloud is available to customers either in the public cloud or in the private cloud edition. In both cases, SAP takes care of cloud hosting and technical provisioning of the solution, which guarantees customers a high degree of flexibility and scalability.

Which of the two options is the right choice for your company basically depends on your specific situation and your goals. For example, customers who want a high degree of individuality and customization options may prefer to use the Private Cloud Edition. Companies that want to apply SAP standards can use SAP S/4HANA Cloud in the Public Cloud Edition.

On our dedicated website, we explain everything you need to know about SAP S/4HANA Cloud and are happy to help you make your decision.
