RISE with SAP: the smart answer to today’s fast-paced world
We offer the complete package for digital transformation – RISE with SAP and SAP S/4HANA Cloud

What does RISE with SAP offer?

The RISE model is SAP’s innovation to help businesses accelerate their digitalization without compromise and with minimal risk. “It's not just another update,” according to SAP CEO Christian Klein. “It’s a new kind of partnership.” A collaborative approach towards an intelligent cloud enterprise business.  RISE stands for “Realize Impact, Sustainably, and Enhance”, in other words, the digital bundle is geared towards achieving impact, promoting sustainability, and driving improvements.

Billed as “business transformation as a service”, RISE bundles various SAP applications into one comprehensive package. At its heart are the ERP suite SAP HANA and S/4HANA Cloud. The pay-off: your business is able to access new technologies much faster and consequently drive innovation. The advantages offered are becoming more and more appealing to the German-speaking world of SAP users.

One system, two options: public cloud vs. private cloud 

RISE with SAP is available in two deployment options. The Private Cloud Edition (PCE) offers a cloud environment that is provided exclusively for use by one specified company. The Public Cloud Edition, on the other hand, can be accessed by multiple customers at the same time.

As flexible as our consulting: The PCE allows you to adapt and individually configure the infrastructure and applications according to your requirements and needs, while the Public Cloud Edition is a standardized cloud environment with best practices.  

The private option also delivers when it comes to security. You can control your own cloud infrastructure in your data center and put security measures in place. As the provider, SAP is responsible for software, support, and technical managed services. Infrastructure management is also included with this cloud model and can also be integrated with other cloud solutions such as Microsoft Azure if needed.

From theory to practice: 3 steps to a successful S/4HANA transformation with RISE with SAP

Technical migration with RISE is split into three steps. As your partner, ORBIS supports you every step of the way. This ensures a simple and holistic transition to the new software for you as a customer. 

RISE with SAP components at a glance

Step 1: Redesign processes

True to our holistic approach, the starting point is an actual state analysis of your existing processes. A business process intelligence solution allows you to analyze your existing processes and compare them with current standards in your industry. This enables you to identify weaknesses and potentials early on and optimally adapt the latter to current requirements based on recommendations for action. 

Step 2: Technical migration using integrated tools and services

To ensure a seamless transition to your new ERP solution, the SAP Readiness Check analyses your current IT infrastructure and visualizes the results in an interactive dashboard. This includes the clean up of custom code, for example. You therefore make targeted, informed decisions about your transition strategy. The Custom Code Analyzer allows you to identify custom code quickly and clean it up. Analytical tools and automated services provide you, the customer, with optimum support on your cloud journey.

Step 3: Build your intelligent enterprise

Successful and efficient business processes can only be implemented if other solutions from SAP, partners, and third-party providers can be easily and quickly integrated into the existing system landscape. This can be mapped using the Business Technology Platform . There are currently more than 2000 APIs available for connectivity. RISE with SAP provides you with consumption credits, known as CPEA credits, for using the extension platform. This allows you to benefit from Ariba, the world's largest procurement network, which comprises of more than 5 million companies. The information contained there helps you to manage your supply chain live and to react to changing market conditions early on.
