RISE with SAP comes with S/4HANA cloud suite and the other components seen above, that simplify the path to SAP S/4HANA migration by bundling up the whole journey into a single offering. To manage the expenses associated with storing extensive data in the cloud, businesses should optimize their database sizes through streamlining.

This is the perfect time to evaluate the data footprint and decide what data is to be moved to the cloud. SAP S/4HANA is using HANA memory, which comes at a high price. Therefore, to keep the costs down, effectively sizing the HANA database is a critical aspect of SAP S/4HANA implementation.

SAP has tried to keep the procedure to get started with RISE as simple as possible. While the business solutions included in RISE with SAP are provided by SAP, most organisations will require a partner to support that implementation. Getting started with RISE with SAP will depend on the starting point of the organisations (existing SAP ECC / SAP S/4HANA / net new customers) as well as the chosen migration approach (Greenfield, Brownfield or Bluefield).

To set yourself up, you can contact consulting firms, system integrators, resellers, software partners, etc. While the specific business solutions included with RISE with SAP are provided by SAP, companies can partner with consulting firms such as Deloitte, Capgemini or Accenture to name a few. Also, SAP has a robust network of resellers that includes thousands of partners that have demonstrated SAP expertise.

At present, Microsoft, Google, AWS, and Alibaba are available as cloud hosts for RISE with SAP, but there is room for growth for other private cloud hosts to join the club.

At TJC Group, we support SAP customers by putting in place a proper Data Volume Management program to support your S/4HANA migration. A Data Volume Reduction program with the help of Data Archiving and SAP ILM should be a crucial phase in every data readiness strategy when preparing for S4/HANA Migration. It helps to reduce the data footprint and memory size of the SAP HANA database server. The final step will cover the decommissioning of SAP and non-SAP legacy systems to ensure legacy data can be re accessed, from one single point, at all times when needed.

Is RISE with SAP a good deal for your organisation? As with any packaged bundle, you have to first assess if the offered solutions are a good fit for your organisation infrastructure and fit within your overall business and IT strategy. Typically, RISE with SAP can be beneficial for companies with smaller IT footprints or technical expertise that want to adopt SAP Cloud options smoothly and simply. Through the consolidation of previously separate elements, such as licensing and maintenance, into a unified offering, it facilitates smoother transitions to cloud implementations.
