SAP announced RISE with SAP earlier in 2021. The main intention of SAP in introducing RISE, SAP has been to promote flexibility and fast delivery with an affordable investment. Undoubtedly, this move is a boon for start-ups and SMEs when they want to migrate to SAP.
Before we begin, What is RISE with SAP?
RISE with SAP implementation comes under a single vendor and single contract concept for both S/4HANA and BW/4HANA PCE editions, along with your infrastructure. It allows customers in transition towards Intelligent Enterprise even when they are just beginning their journey. It will help every client achieve business transformation when combined with cloud migration. What is more? They can utilise 2200+ ready-made APIs (application programming interfaces) to upscale their business.
Where did it all start? By introducing its landmark product, SAP ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) Central Component (ECC), in 2006, SAP started revolutionizing how businesses work. Four years later, SAP HANA launched.
The prime function included storing and retrieving data on request by the SAP applications. In addition, it also performs advanced analytics in spatial data processing, predictive analytics, text search, text analytics, graph data processing and streaming analytics with plenty of ETL capabilities application server.
Now we are in the age of SAP S/4HANA, a next-gen business suite. The product is built on an advanced in-memory platform known as SAP HANA by incorporating modern design principles using SAP Fiori user experience (UX). Get access to massive simplifications such as user experience, data model, customer adoption, decision making and other business processes with innovative solutions such as AI (Artificial Intelligence), ML (Machine Learning), IoT (Internet of Things) and Big Data to simplify all your business processes in the digital age using RISE with SAP Implementation service.
SAP S/4HANA is deployable in On-premise, Cloud, Private Cloud and HANA Enterprise Cloud modes. The SAP S/4HANA transition can take place in three forms- Implementation, System Conversion and Landscape Transformation. SAP ECC to S/4HANA conversion is extremely risky. It would be best if you had the proper RISE with SAP Implementation consulting service to complete the process.
Let us imagine that you will be a Windows 95 user in 2021. Can you expect Windows to support you in case of any technical issues? Will you be able to purchase any latest plugins? That is almost impossible.
You would also need to catch up on the latest technological advancements, which your peers might be catching up on quickly. What is the solution? You must move on to Windows 10. Easier said than done. How would you migrate the data stored in your system’s hard disk for the past 5-10 years? The amount of time and resources would go nowhere. If you have stored the data on the cloud, you are safer. You can migrate it with a few clicks.
Similarly, SAP would cease to support S/4HANA in 2025. Before that, you must transport your precious business data from your ECC system to S/4HANA. Alas! Businesses have already spent millions of dollars updating their data in SAP ECC with the help of a RISE with SAP Implementation partner.
Also, ECC is an on-premise software. That means you need a separate data centre where you store a limited amount of data. Data management will consume much manual space, time, cost, and resources.
SAP S/4HANA is a cloud model where you can collaborate with hyperscalers such as AWS (Amazon Web Services), Microsoft Azure and Alibaba to store your data. With SAP S/4HANA, you need a Web URL to store all your data in one place.
Data migration is a massive deal for start-ups. What is the best solution to make this happen? That is where iQuantM RISE with SAP Implementation comes into the picture.
Technical migration has been a good topic among SAP With RISE partners. RISE with SAP allows the conversion of SAP ECC to SAP S/4HANA PCE.
It consists of all the technical tools and services you need to migrate to S/4HANA.
Clients can choose their preferred hyperscaler to benefit directly from the platform and infrastructure in the form of a service model. You can merge different systems apart from migrating As-Is into the cloud since clients may have to account for several instances within this landscape. It is what you can expect for SAP S/4HANA in RISE with SAP.
RISE with SAP supports multiple customers to expedite their cloud journey when moving their BW (Business Warehouse) or BW/4HANA or ECC or S/4HANA-based landscapes onto the cloud with one contract and one partner-based engagement model.
Do look out for different patterns, as mentioned above, before deciding on iQuantM RISE with SAP Implementation, and there could be different decision points than functionality and future-proofing when it comes to RISE with SAP services.

The major difference between SAP ECC and S/4HANA is based on the database they utilise. When ECC is running on third-party database systems such as S/4HANA and Oracle, it would rely on the SAP in-memory database.
SAP ECC (SAP ERP Central Component) is an on-premises enterprise resource planning (ERP) system we refer as “SAP ERP.”
ECC software can integrate digital information which created in a single business area of data from other areas of the business in real-time.
