What is RISE with SAP?

Short Answer

RISE is SAP’s over-priced push to migrate customers from legacy on-premise applications to cloud in partnership with AWS, Azure, and other hyperscalers.

In-Depth Answer

RISE with SAP is a bundle of products and services that consolidates the following to a single contract and price:

  • SAP S/4HANA Cloud ERP, deployed in public or private cloud
  • Hosting services from SAP, AWS, Azure, Google and Alibaba
  • SAP Business Network Starter Pack, including Ariba, Asset Intelligence and Logistic Business Networks
  • SAP Business Technology Platform with Cloud Platform Enterprise Agreement (CPEA) Credits
    • CPEA Credits similar to Oracle’s Universal Cloud Credits for OCI
  • Business Process Intelligence with Discovery Reports via Signavio
  • Tools and services, including S/4HANA migration support, Custom Code Analyzer, Readiness Check, Learning Hub, etc.

Each of these products and services can be purchased separately, so Remend recommends customers assess the value of each independently. We also recommend a comprehensive TCO to determine whether moving to S/4HANA is better via Cloud Native or RISE with SAP.

While SAP markets RISE to all customers and segments, RISE with SAP is typically most beneficial for smaller companies that have limited technical expertise, budgets and vendor management.
