GROW with SAP and SAP S/4HANA Public Cloud
GROW with SAP: the key to long-lasting success in the cloud era
Grow together with SAP S/4HANA Public Cloud and us to become an intelligent enterprise!

What does GROW with SAP with Public Cloud offer?

With GROW with SAP, SAP has introduced a new range of solutions to make implementing SAP S/4HANA Cloud quick and easy. The range, with Public Cloud at its core, is aimed in particular at growing SMEs that are not using an ERP system yet and at start-ups that are in a growth and expansion phase. It promises increased speed and a high level of flexibility, predictable costs and continuous provision of technical innovations and scalability. This gives companies the critical support they need to boost their growth and adaptability to the market – at minimal cost.

Compared to the Private Cloud version and an on-prem ERP solution, the Public Cloud version relies on standardized, preconfigured processes and follows the fit-to-standard approach. So GROW with SAP is a particularly interesting option for companies that have fewer complex processes, prefer a high degree of standardization and would like to use the public cloud. As the bundle’s name suggests, GROW with SAP assists companies with growing their business and lays the foundation for the digital transformation to the cloud!

The GROW with SAP modules

The GROW with SAP range consists of three key modules for rapidly and innovatively introducing cloud ERP: technological solutions (Solution Components), tools and methods (Adoption & Acceleration Services), and the Community & Learning area.

Components of GROW with SAP

Solution Components

At the heart of the GROW with SAP range is the Software as a Service (SaaS) solution SAP S/4HANA Cloud Public Edition – the cloud-based version of SAP S/4HANA. SAP S/4HANA Public Cloud is largely standardized and preconfigured, which enables swift startup. The software is based on SAP Fiori, so you benefit from intuitive user interfaces and an excellent user experience. Companies are always at the cutting edge with the latest best practices for various sectors and continuous innovations. With its broad range of functions, SAP S/4HANA Public Cloud covers all key processes in areas such as finance, sales, purchasing, manufacturing, supply chain, service, asset management, R&D and design.

In addition to the cloud ERP system, GROW with SAP also gives you access to the SAP Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP) as a technological solution. This platform is an innovation platform that allows users to define their own processes and functions beyond the S/4HANA Cloud standard. SAP Build provides users with a low-code development environment that they can use without any need for programming knowledge. So companies can remain agile at all times, as mapping of changing requirements is both fast and flexible.

Adoption & Acceleration Services

So you can get off to a smooth start in the world of cloud ERP, GROW with SAP offers access to tried-and-tested tools and methods (“Adoption & Acceleration Services”). SAP Activate provides you with a standardized methodology that supports you with a guided configuration process and best practices when introducing SAP S/4HANA Cloud and makes implementing your cloud solution considerably easier! Avoid unexpected situations by relying on a proven implementation service that offers a clear scope and schedule – so there are no surprises after the fact.

In addition to SAP Activate, SAP Cloud ALM (Cloud Application Lifecycle Management) offers comprehensive functions for providing, implementing and operating cloud solutions. Whether you are processing, testing and deploying, or even performing task management, SAP Cloud ALM optimizes your operational processes and minimizes downtimes. Thanks to the holistic approach, you benefit from transparency of and control over your IT landscape and receive support throughout the entire implementation process, so you can concentrate on what is essential: growing your company.

Community & Learning

Learn directly from SAP experts and customers! Get access to an active community of experts where people exchange their experiences. The SAP community helps you learn from SAP experts, partners and customers in an open, collaborative community, exchange information about SAP solutions, and share best practices. You can also access free and fully accessible learning content covering the entire portfolio of solutions. Benefit from technical training on the SAP Learning Platform with customizable learning and training opportunities that are tailored specifically to your goals. This gives you the opportunity to broaden your skills and quickly improve internal acceptance of the new system.

A transparent scope and predictable costs

Thanks to the SaaS model, the scope and schedule remain predictable. Both business and budget requirements are met, and surprises in the project are avoided. What’s more, billing is based on the Pay as you Go model, which is customary in the cloud context, so the costs for the software are significantly lower than they are for traditional on-prem ERP systems.

Everyday work and internal capacity building – simplified

Benefit from greater transparency and control throughout the entire company thanks to real-time insights and analytics. The AI functions integrated in SAP S/4HANA Cloud help you to enhance the efficiency of numerous business processes! Release 2402, for example, introduced automatic completion of customer orders and automated material checking. In addition, with SAP Build Process Automation and the AI tools supplied, you benefit from low-code / no-code development tools so you can optimize and automate processes. So workflows can be easily implemented with AI support – and with minimal use of IT resources to boot, thanks to low-code tools. Flexible learning and training opportunities also make it easy to build up internal expertise and foster acceptance of the software.

GROW with SAP vs. RISE with SAP: what’s the difference?

RISE with SAP is ideal for companies that have complex business processes and are looking for a scalable solution. The range is aimed at both companies that have previously used an on-premise system and ones that do not have an SAP solution in place yet. It is also ideal for companies that are keen to migrate existing processes to the cloud and benefit from the advantages of a cloud-based infrastructure.

The range consists of a combination of solutions, infrastructure and security, not to mention services for migration and implementation in your company – all from a single source. At the heart of RISE with SAP is the customized cloud ERP solution SAP S/4HANA Private Cloud, while GROW with SAP includes the Public Cloud solution. Individual requirements beyond the SAP standard can be implemented in the Private Cloud version so that the cloud ERP adapts to your individual transformation (tailored-to-fit cloud ERP).
