Going with the changing times has become a necessity for modern businesses. Adopting a cloud-based approach will pay huge dividends in the future and that is why SAP has come up with a new product called RISE with SAP. It is aimed towards helping different companies with their foray into digital transformation and tries to help companies with limited technical knowledge to get started quickly. It doesn’t matter if you implement it in-house or take help from an SAP Business One consultant, RISE with SAP will help you with transforming your business for the new digital age.
What Is RISE With SAP
RISE with SAP was launched by SAP as the basic platform to help companies migrate to the cloud solutions provided by the company. It is a bundling of existing SAP assets that is packaged as a BTaaS or Busines-Transformation-as-a-Service solution for the customers.
It takes a lot of guesswork out of the cloud adoption process and accelerates its timeline so that the customers can use all the tools they need as quickly as possible. The solution covers six important aspects of a business that was decided after carefully analyzing customer trends and the performance of other SAP products.
RISE with SAP takes inspiration from earlier SAP products to present itself in a set of “ones”, that is:
- One Offer: different products batched together for a single price
- One Contract: ability to manage operations, SLA, and issue management with a single contract.
This solution is beneficial for smaller companies that have limited technical expertise and budgets. It will help them incorporate SAP into their system without breaking their bank accounts.
Solutions Included In RISE With SAP
SAP S/4 HANA Cloud Suite
SAP S/4 HANA is the flagship enterprise resource planning solution from SAP. Its cloud suite version is included for businesses that don’t want to host the solution on-premise. The solution covers a collection of business solutions like finance, sales, R&D, supply chain management, relationship management, and more.
System Hosting Options
The cloud suite needs to run on a host and SAP offers its servers to the customers to hose the cloud suite. However, other hyperscalers offer the same ability for the customers to choose from.
SAP Business Network Starter Pack
Customers need to connect with trading partners for sourcing, supplying, transport, and other requirements. The SAP Business Network Starter Pack provides that ability to the customers. They can find and manage quality suppliers, track assets in transit, manage inventory, and do a lot more with the solution.

SAP BTP Consumption Credits
SAP understands that every business is different that’s why they provide cloud credits to RISE with SAP license holders. They can use these credits for different areas of the SAP Business Technology Platform rather than using some predefined tools.
