RISE with SAP – Accelerate Your Business Transformation

What are the reasons for you, whether you're already using SAP or not, to consider adopting RISE with SAP? In brief, SAP now presents a rental-based service model that combines licenses, system operation, and the accompanying services, all bundled into a single comprehensive package.

Why Move to the Cloud?

Your business deserves efficient, tailored, industry-specific end-to-end processes that can keep up with the demands of markets, clients and partners, every day. Ideally, these standardized yet flexible processes should run in a cloud ERP system. The benefits include flexible scaling, minimal maintenance requirements and the highest security standards.

However, there are a number of questions before switching to the cloud and the transformation that goes along with it: Which platform would be the most cost-effective and future-oriented choice? How will we implement potential process improvements and innovations in practice? How can we harness the cloud to maximize the benefit to our business model and its expansion?

In short, how does your business transition to the cloud as risk-free and smoothly as possible? And how can you benefit quickly and comprehensively from this newly unleashed potential?

Why RISE with SAP? The Added Value of SAP Starter Packages

For companies that already use SAP, RISE with SAP delivers everything you need for a smart, sustainable business. It combines SAP S/4HANA Cloud with preconfigured best practices, embedded AI and automation functions, and the SAP Business Technology Platform (BTP).

Unlike on-premises solutions, you don’t purchase a one-off license. Instead, you subscribe to a service model with RISE with SAP that combines the licenses, system operation and services. The subscription costs depend on the number of full user equivalents (FUEs). One major advantage of this model is that businesses have a single point of contact for operations, licenses, maintenance, and support.

GROW with SAP: New Offering in the SAP Portfolio

Based on the model of RISE with SAP and largely featuring the same components GROW with SAP is an innovative addition to the SAP portfolio, designed to cater the needs of small and medium-sized businesses that do not yet have an ERP system in place. This new offering allows businesses to implement SAP S/4HANA Public Cloud in a fast and uncomplicated way – especially with preconfigured and standardized processes.

SAP S/4HANA Cloud – Public or Private Edition? Base or Premium Version?

Public or Private Edition?

RISE with SAP is available in Public and Private Editions. With the Public Edition, multiple customers share infrastructure and software on a public cloud. The benefits include flexible scaling, high availability, and low maintenance costs, safe in the knowledge that the host meets the highest security standards.

The Private Edition allows for more customized processes, and the classic ABAP enhancements are generally available (but are to be used with caution so as not to limit the release capability). SAP or a Hyperscaler provides the cloud infrastructure, with a choice between Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, and Amazon Web Services.

RISE with SAP S/4HANA Public and Private Editions are both available in “Base” and “Premium” versions. Both versions include preconfigured processes, e.g. for Procure to Pay, Order to Cash and Finance. The “Premium” version offers additional frequently required features.
