As RISE is a bundling of functionality, at a high level it may appear simpler, more easily managed, and, therefore, less costly. Depending on the nature of your operation, the scope of your SAP application, and your reasons for going with RISE, this is not always the case.
Like any major change in the SAP space, RISE is a transformation journey. Following the implementation of RISE with SAP, you would require ongoing managed technical services. Naturally, SAP provides additional and optional services which are not included in the bundled RISE subscription offering. Starting with education and support as you make the decision to undertake migration and adoption, we can help you experience a rapid, well-understood, and risk-averse journey.
We also emphasize that the customer still has responsibilities and accountabilities that they must be prepared for. They should not rely on SAP alone to manage these additional services as SAP might lack the required bandwidth. It is important for the customer to understand the RACI SAP ERP, Private Cloud Edition Roles & Responsibilities before embarking on this journey.
