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.
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.
