Thus, in this blog, we’re going to focus on a specific section of RISE with SAP – the roles or responsibilities it comes with. However, before we talk about that, let’s learn something a bit more fundamental and get you introduced to the system.

RISE with SAP – What Is It, really?

Honestly, almost every piece of information on RISE with SAP available out there tends to complicate the aforesaid definition a little. So, in this article, we’ll try to simplify it a little.

So, RISE with SAP is essentially a product of SAP, which comes with a single contract and a single vendor concept. It works ideally for both your organizational structure and previously installed SAP solutions in your system.

And, how does it do so?

Well, to begin with, RISE with SAP can help you move forward and establish an “Intelligent Enterprise” by making you more agile and efficient. Apart from this, you can also automate a repetitive process to complete it quickly and move on with your business.

That’s not where it ends, though. With RWS, you can also –

  • Get a comprehensive solution with a single price point. Hence, there’s no need to pay for anything separately. Just reimburse for the technologies you’re using. That’s all.
  • If you have an in-built SAP infrastructure in your organizational system, it’ll also be possible for you to implement RWS easily. You can integrate S/4HANA on it as well.
  • It can help you transform your business holistically by integrating new technologies into your business structure and making it highly efficient.

So, that’s how implementing RISE with SAP can help your organization grow faster and a lot more efficiently. However, our discussion doesn’t end here.

Please follow through the next section to know more about the roles and responsibilities it’ll throw upon you. It might get a little technical, so please bear with us.

The Roles And Responsibilities Of RISE with SAP

Yes, RISE with SAP is, indeed, going to be an ideal option for your business going forward. But, as it’s something new, you’ll need to learn more about it before the adoption procedure starts. Keep reading this section till the end to get more information on it.

Consideration – 1: Choose A Suitable Cloud Provider.

When working with RISE with SAP, it’s essential to choose the best cloud provider first. It’s going to be the base of your operation. So, the more you dig, the better it’ll be for you.

So, how do you choose a perfect cloud provider?

Well, to begin with, you should keep an eye on –

  • The price they’re asking to offer their assistance.
  • Their overall efficiency regarding the project you’re working on.
  • Their thoughts regarding your project and the adoption of RISEwith SAP.

Aside from these, we’ll also ask you to create a brand new cloud adoption roadmap for your organization. When you’re done with it, talk to your team and enquire about what they think regarding the same. If they’ve given the green light, go with your adoption.

Consideration – 2: The Decision Tree Of Cloud Adoption.

Before you choose the right cloud provider, you should always think close and hard about the decision in the making. The process of cloud adoption is, indeed, quite a hectic process. Thus, before you decide something here, you’ll need to ask yourself –

  • Do you have a suitable financial backup to facilitate the cloud adoption process?
  • Does your team have the right skill set to run the operations related to it?
  • Will it be possible for you to integrate APIs and microservices with it?
  • Is your corporation meeting the industry-based and regulatory requirements?
  • Can the security compliance of your organization facilitate the cloud move?

The cloud adoption procedure can be quite a critical task to handle, even if you have a decent team backing you up. So, it’ll be best if you consider everything else before making a move.

Consideration – 3: Getting Information Regarding The Scopes.

Although it might sound unbelievable, RISE with SAP is unbelievably flexible when talking about setting up with the –

  • Business Intelligence landscape.
  • S/4HANA Cloud system, and
  • BW/4HANA.

Therefore, if you have already started using the PCE edition of the infrastructure, you’ll have to decide if you want to use the –

  • The Greenfield scope,
  • The Brownfield scope, or
  • The Bluefield scope.

In addition to this, we’ll also ask you to get a little bit more information about the inflow and outflow-based interface of the Non-SAP SaaS and the on-premise products. Additionally, it’ll be best to have some industry-specific ideas about the landscape model too.

Something To Remember: Unfortunately, RWS currently has a restricted set of landscapes to work upon. Thus, apart from the aforesaid, you’ll also need to consider if the model has to be of tier-4, tier-3, or tier-2. Or else various issues might occur on your end.

Finalizing It Up!

Apart from everything we’ve stated so far, you have to focus on the core functional needs and requirements as well. For example, when you get the RWS package, it’ll be essential for you to inquire about the “best practice” pack beside it.

In addition to that, your cloud provider is also going to offer some packages on their own. So, if you could do some research on the same before opting for anything, it’d be great for you.

Also, it’s a must that you have a proper plan by your side. Or else it’ll be impossible for you to move forward with your project or RWS adoption as a whole.
