New York, USA: Accenture and SAP have team-up to help organisations drive business transformation with a new offering. Both companies are collaborating to help clients with a new business transformation offering – RISE with SAP.
RISE with SAP – a new business transformation offering
The new offering uses the flexibility of public or private cloud infrastructure to provide the full intelligent enterprise experience. That includes the enterprise resource planning (ERP) capabilities of SAP S/4HANA and integration with SAP Business Technology Platform.
Accenture will bring technology and industry services to simplify cloud migration as part of this new offering. The two companies, Accenture and SAP are working to support their clients at any stage of the transformation journey. Accenture’s services will help lower the cost and risk of migrating SAP S/4HANA to the cloud.
Value of Cloud investments and Benefits
A vast majority of companies, as per new research from Accenture say that cloud provides a variety of business benefits. Such as better cost efficiencies, improved service levels and fast speed to market. And enabling organisations reimagined business models and improving business resilience.
But only 37% of companies are achieving the full expected value on their cloud investments, as per the research. It indicates a large percentage of companies are facing high costs and risks during cloud migration. And this scenario needs an effective solution.
Accenture said that its approach to building on the cloud can reduce many upfront migration costs and allows more resources to be invested in creating ways of working and new innovations that add business value.
With a core system based on SAP S/4HANA on agile cloud infrastructure, clients can quickly implement industry-specific processes. And can use joint solutions and extend functionality on SAP Business Technology Platform to simplify deployments.
“There are many options for moving SAP applications to the cloud; the path to embracing these changes is unique to every organisation,” said Caspar Borggreve, Global Lead – Accenture SAP Business Group.
“The newly launched RISE with SAP clarifies options for clients in their journey to transform into intelligent enterprises,” added Borggreve.

Accenture has a substantial experience in SAP solutions, SAP Business Technology Platform and cloud deployments. “Accenture brings an exceptional combination of industry and functional expertise and innovation at scale to power transformation across every facet of the business,” added Borggreve.
“We deliver 360ᵒ value through a smart approach that uses automation, existing investments and modern implementation methods to deliver solutions with greater speed and less disruption,” emphasised Borggreve.
