SAP S/4 HANA Cloud

How can you keep growing in spite of economic uncertainty with SAP S/4 HANA Cloud?

Today, every business is challenged by economic uncertainty. The IMF reports that the global economy slowed down in 2023, and predicts the slowdown to continue in 2024. But despite the economic headwinds, every business needs to grow.  Whether it’s a small or large business, new or established, the challenge is how can you keep growing in spite of economic uncertainty?

The need to implement cloud solutions in businesses is logical due to rising demands for flexibility and efficiency, along with a shortage of skilled workers. A study by Flexera found that 83% of companies could respond faster to market demands thanks to cloud flexibility and scalability. Cloud enterprises excel amid increasing regulations, focusing on innovation and compliance to elevate data protection and customer trust.

Why cloud is the right choice

Modernize, standardize, and innovate with industry best practices and continuous innovations

The move to SAP S/4HANA Cloud Public Edition or Private Edition is a way to modernize, standardize, and innovate by using the industry best practices, and continuous innovations.

SAP S/4HANA Cloud Private Edition is a tailored cloud ERP, while SAP S/4HANA Cloud Public Edition delivers industry best practices and innovation – notably rapid rapid innovation, as a full software-as-as-service, cloud-native ERP.

Simplify the opportunities for business transformation

For SAP’s installed base customers migrating to the cloud, RISE with SAP is the enablement package accompanying the SAP S/4HANA Cloud Private Edition software in two different use cases: When SAP S/4HANA Cloud Private Edition is implemented individually in a greenfield or brownfield scenario, and when it’s implemented in combination with SAP S/4HANA Cloud Public Edition for a two-tier ERP scenario (scroll down this page to learn more about this).

The combination of both the software and enablement package provides customers with additional tools and resources to support the transition.

Implement and accelerate your move to the cloud

For small and midsize customers looking for a solution they can immediately adopt, GROW with SAP is the enablement package accompanying the SAP S/4HANA Cloud Public Edition software.

It provides additional tools to support the transition, as well as accelerated adoption services, a global community of experts, and free learning resources that can help customers go live in as little as four weeks with a greenfield deployment.


An unprecedented opportunity for transformation.

Move to SAP s/4 HANA Cloud with a two-tier ERP strategy

An Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system needs to be both agile and reliable, enabling an organization to quickly respond to evolving business conditions, while also maintaining a sustainable environment that serves stakeholders and business users.

When moving to SAP S/4HANA Cloud, we recommend what we call a two-tier ERP strategy. This Two-Tier ERP allows our customers to gradually transition to cloud ERP by moving specific divisions, intra-enterprise companies, or processes into cloud. In addition, this solution enables rollouts of new acquisitions, divestitures, joint ventures, or new business models on cloud ERP.  

Is SAP S/4HANA Cloud the right choice for you?

With our Cloud Awareness Assessment, we offer a sustainable and coordinated assessment approach in 4 steps:

  1. Understand & guide transformation ambitions: In this phase we engage at C-level and jointly identify the scope and transformation vision, while also taking the potential of both SAP S/4HANA Cloud Public and Private Edition into consideration.
  2. DDA guidance & advisory: In a next step we explore the existing process house and identify key pain points as well as capabilities and its owners for the DDA before jointly executing the DDA.
  3. DDA evaluation support & consulting: Here, we will jointly identify deviations from S/4 Cloud including potential solutions.
  4. S/4HANA Cloud technical feasibility: In a last step the assessment carries out a first technical feasibility check, where we will assess Interfaces, data decommissioning solutions, and architectural designs (e.g. SAP BTP).

Following our assessment, you will receive an overall decision paper for functional and technical assessment for your possible move to SAP S/4HANA Cloud.

In addition, our compact 5-Dimension Check, a tool-based analysis that reveals optimization potential in business processes, will help you understand and draw out the possible transition path for your company by focusing on processes, data, landscape, operation model, and roll-out strategy.
