RISE with SAP – and SNP
The Right Step on the Way to Becoming an Intelligent Enterprise

It is a gamechanger for the SAP world according to Christian Klein, spokesman for SAP’s Executive Board. And I think he’s right. The “RISE with SAP” initiative answers the question of how companies can transform into intelligent enterprises more rapidly. It aims to reduce the complexity of digital transformations to a minimum, paving the way for companies to move to the cloud and SAP S/4HANA.

The background conditions continue to be characterized by increasing pressure for companies to approach transformation and digitalization holistically. Agility, speed and efficiency are determining success and failure more than ever before. Here, the winners will be those who can quickly adapt their business processes.

With RISE with SAP, the Walldorf-based company is offering a holistic approach that encompasses the design of business processes, tools and services for technical migration and cloud infrastructure as well as a comprehensive range of solutions for the intelligent enterprise.
We all know that tackling a transformation alone is hard work, and the harmonious migration and transformation of data is a critical factor here. However, the sheer volume of contacts, platforms, goals and systems alone causes many projects to get out of hand, both financially and in terms of time. Homogeneous solutions are in demand, which is why we very much welcome the fact that RISE with SAP puts everyone in the same boat: the user companies, SAP and a powerful partner network. In addition to consultants such as IBM, Accenture, Deloitte and All for One, hyperscalers such as Microsoft, Google and Amazon are also involved – and of course we are too.

Our data transformation platform CrystalBridge enables companies to implement their transformation processes quickly, securely and without errors. Our software has already been successfully used in 12,500 projects. And it will also be an important piece of the puzzle that makes up the bigger picture of RISE with SAP.

I look forward to transforming the user companies successfully and to good cooperation with SAP and our partners. For me, RISE with SAP is the right step at the right time.
