SAP has launched a new collection of services and software, offered as a single subscription product called “Rise with SAP,” designed to assist customers with cloud migration and digital transformation initiatives. As part of the Rise with SAP announcement Wednesday the company said it is acquiring Signavio, a Germany-based developer of business process intelligence and process management tools.
SAP is also extending its long-running strategic alliance with Microsoft by disclosing plans to integrate Microsoft Teams collaboration software with SAP’s S/4HANA suite of ERP applications. The companies also will expand their joint efforts to accelerate the adoption of S/4HANA on Microsoft’s Azure public cloud and the integration of Teams with S/4HANA, now under development.
The Rise with SAP offering is built around SAP software and services, with S/4HANA Cloud and the SAP Business Technology Platform at the core, with the software available through SAP’s private cloud service as well as hyperscale public cloud platforms such as Azure and Amazon Web Services.SAP calls Rise with SAP a “business transformation-as-a-service” offering that provides a path to the intelligent enterprise, the moniker SAP has used for several years to describe organizations that use automated business processes.
