RISE with SAP S/4HANA Cloud Overview
RISE with SAP S/4HANA Cloud is a standardized public cloud solution with a comprehensive enterprise resource planning (ERP) scope and selected industry and Line of Business (LoB) scenarios. RISE with SAP refers to the additional resources and benefits on top of the core SAP S/4HANA Cloud software, collectively called business transformation services.
The SAP S/4HANA Cloud software lives in a multi-tenant server and each customer accesses their software through a unique link over the internet. Multi-tenant means that two or more tenants (customers) are sharing the bandwidth of one server. This multi-tenant server resides in an SAP data center. Your cloud provider (SAP) is responsible for maintaining the technical backend of your system and runs your software service in the server where your tenant resides.
SAP S/4HANA Cloud has the fastest innovation, meaning regular release cycles, where new features and enhancements to existing functionality are released. SAP maintains your system with bi-weekly hotfixes and installs the release upgrades to customer systems on the defined release schedule. Please note, only upgrades that affect a customer's existing scope (active business processes) are applied. New business processes that are released are completely up to the customer's discretion as to whether or not to activate the new scope in their system.
SAP S/4HANA Cloud has the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO), because multiple customers are effectively sharing the cost of a server, and because more standardization means SAP can provide far more pre-delivered resources to make the implementation and running the solution as easy as possible.
If you have subscriptions to multiple solutions in addition to SAP S/4HANA Cloud (e.g. SAP SuccessFactors, SAP Concur, etc.), you will have an individual tenant for each software server that may or may not reside in the same data center as your SAP S/4HANA Cloud ERP solution.
