Rise with SAP: Simplifying Digital Transformation
If you've recently heard about "RISE with SAP", let me explain it to you in simple terms. RISE with SAP is a powerful package designed to accelerate your transformation journey and give your business a competitive advantage in today's digital world. Before we move forward, let's explore some key concepts to help you grasp the idea easily:
SaaS (Software as a Service): It's like a subscription where you pay a fee for using cutting-edge software, providing a seamless and hassle-free experience.
PaaS (Platform as a Service): With PaaS, you get a complete platform for developing, deploying, and managing applications without worrying about the underlying infrastructure.
IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service): Think of it as renting the foundation for your digital operations from a cloud provider, so you don't have to manage your own servers and hardware.
Another important concept mentioned by SAP's CEO, Christian Klein, is BTaaS (Business Transformation as a Service). This is what he considers RISE with SAP to be, as it combines IaaS, SaaS, and PaaS to support your business transformation process.
Now that you have a clearer understanding of what RISE with SAP means, let's delve into its benefits while keeping these concepts in mind. SAP recognizes the significance of offering businesses a comprehensive solution featuring user-friendly tools, products, and software, to support their digital transformation. RISE with SAP is an all-in-one commercial package that streamlines your digital transformation journey. It brings together infrastructure, managed services, and software into a single subscription contract.
In other words, you'll have access to SaaS, represented by SAP S/4HANA, and PaaS offerings through the SAP Business Technology Platform. Moreover, SAP will take care of your infrastructure (IaaS), ensuring a smooth transition to the cloud and keeping you updated with the latest SAP innovations. Having just one contract from SAP eliminates the hassle of managing multiple providers. It's a comprehensive solution designed to make your digital transformation journey seamless and efficient.
SAP has made another significant advancement by introducing RISE with SAP. This comprehensive package can help clients achieve their goal of adopting a Clean Core Strategy using SAP BTP and SAP S/4HANA. I will explain these concepts in more detail later, but they are important to know if you work in an SAP environment.
Before I leave, let me share some exciting news about RISE with SAP from the SAP Q2 Results. This solution is making great progress in helping both SAP and their customers achieve ambitious climate action goals. You can read more about it here.
