SAP offers two programs, Grow with SAP and Rise with SAP, specifically designed to assist businesses in migrating to the Cloud. They provide tailored solutions for each type of enterprise: small, mid-size or large enterprises. 

In this article, we will delve into the specifics of each of these programs and discuss their unique features. 

Grow With SAP: Accelerate Your Migration to the Public Cloud 

Launched in March 2023, GROW with SAP is a new offering in SAP’s portfolio. Aimed at small and Mid-sized Enterprises (SMEs), the objective of this program is the rapid and simplified implementation of SAP S/4 HANA Cloud – Public Edition, according to the best practices of the SAP for companies that do not yet have an ERP system in place. 

This package integrates a ready-to-use offer of SAP S/4 HANA, similar to a SaaS model, with access to the SAP Business Technology Platform and several of its applications. 

Two offers are available to access its integration: 

  • Basic offer: which includes pre-configured process dedicated to procurement to payment, or to cash, and finance, notably procure to pay, order to cash. 
  • Premium offer: includes the basic offer and adds additional financial functions such as cash management, accelerated financial month-end closing, and consolidation functions. 

Grow with SAP is also designed for scaleups, under the name “Grow with SAP for Scaleups,” enabling support and structuring of business growth. The German company also offers 6 months of subscription fee support for these companies to financially alleviate the startup phase. 

With its easy implementation, GROW with SAP offers faster access to Cloud ERP by merging the public edition of SAP S/4 HANA Cloud with adoption acceleration services, pre-configured best practices, integrated AI and automation features, along with the BTP platform. 

RISE With SAP: Accelerate Your migration to Private Cloud

The main goal of Rise with SAP is to assist companies in integrating a Cloud ERP or migrating their ECC ERP to SAP S/4 HANA in the cloud to position themselves within the framework of the “Intelligent Enterprise.” This program provides optimal access to a Private Cloud ERP solution. 

The German company currently offers two options for integration: 

  • Basic offer: Includes the full suite of SAP S/4HANA Private Cloud edition, hosted on SAP’s data centers. 
  • Premium offer: Includes the full suite of SAP S/4 HANA Private Cloud edition and allows you to choose from cloud hyperscalers such as AWS, IBM Cloud, Google Cloud, and Azure. 

What are the differences between GROW with SAP and RISE with SAP?   

The choice between GROW with SAP and RISE with SAP often depends on the type of company, its size, its needs in terms of cloud, private or public, and the customisation of its ERP solution.

Grow enables a SaaS approach and reduces integration time to accelerate adoption. It’s a strategy that’s well suited to many fast-growing SMEs. 

Rise, on the other hand, offers a much more personalised approach, responding to the challenges faced by the largest enterprises, enabling them to retain control over their choice of infrastructure and processes. 

Grow with SAP and Rise with SAP are two different programmes offering services tailored to the successful migration to S/4 HANA in the Cloud. In order to choose the right programme, it is important to identify and pinpoint your company’s fundamental needs and challenges.
