Who this book is for

This book is targeted at CXOs, IT owners, architects, process owners, cloud security consultants, administrators, and project managers who need a consolidated overview of the value of RISE with SAP and the other services connected to it. We’ll cover different industry use cases, along with the benefits realized by adopting RISE with SAP, and the potential journey map to follow to achieve the most cost-optimized scenario. We also believe this book is relevant to all SAP-interested readers across all industries and technologies, even outside S/4HANA, so that they can understand its actual impact on the wider ecosystem.

Throughout the book, you will learn about the different trends in the industry today and the impact they have on business outcomes. We will talk about how being aware of these allows organizations to build a strong business case for RISE with SAP. You will understand what RISE with SAP is, along with the different services and products made available as part of the ecosystem around it. You will be informed on how to make the right choices and decisions when it comes to defining their use cases, scopes, and journey maps in order to achieve a sustainable enterprise.

Let’s go through some key personas and how the book will help them:

  • IT owner/CXO/SAP architects/process owners: These personas will be involved from the initial evaluation of the journey toward the cloud, along with security and other key decision factors. These also focus on TCO reduction while providing users with a strategic platform for both automating and infusing AI-enabled intelligent workflows into their daily activities.
  • CXO/IT Owner: These personas will also be interested in identifying how their IT costs translate into business benefits. They will also need help with building the business case to either move toward S/4HANA with RISE with SAP or just their journey toward the cloud in general. These personas will be interested in understanding the security implications, along with the ROI, when it comes to the various services on offer.
  • SAP architects: These personas will be interested in how the landscape architecture changes. What new services are available that can help the implementation, its management, and the business teams involved? What services will be part of the baseline model and what other additional or optional services should be opted for? What services should be requested of partners and how will monthly, quarterly, and yearly release cycles look after the move to RISE with SAP?
  • Process owners: These personas will be interested in what value moving to RISE with SAP adds from a business process point of view. These personas will also want to understand the intelligent workflows and transformation options available and their potential.

We want to encourage our readers to take a deep dive into the concepts we introduce in this book and keep them in mind when adopting, implementing, and migrating or upgrading to S/4HANA, RISE with SAP, and beyond, building the necessary skills to meet your particular needs.
