As a long-standing SAP partner, our focus is clearly on the added value and offering with which we explain and provide RISE to our customers. Accordingly, we immediately started the so-called partner enablement on all levels provided by SAP and are currently certified as an SAP RISE partner for the Public and Private Cloud Edition as well as for the Cloud AMS Services, for which SAP also provides a dedicated partner certification. We have already come into contact with all of these topics in previous projects, so we are not breaking new ground anywhere. The new certification standard is to be obtained quickly for addressing customers and dealing with SAP partner management.
While we knew from initial exchange rounds with SAP from the emergence of RISE rather a focus on SAP new customers and rather small to medium-complex SAP landscapes, we are currently watching with great interest the efforts of SAP to address with RISE in particular also existing customers with large SAP installations and thus to position the S/4HANA Private Cloud Edition as an ERP cloud solution.
With its content, RISE addresses essential questions and topics that play an important role in the digitization of business processes and models, as well as the modernization of our customers' IT architectures. The evaluation of RISE in comparison to our own transformation models and an integration into our consulting approach will be part of our activities in the coming weeks. As a digitization and transformation partner and SAP partner, we now need to see how our customers evaluate the SAP offering, the necessary realignment to cloud subscriptions, and the implications for their existing digitization strategies. To this end, we look forward to the discussions ahead and to working with all stakeholders: our customers and the SAP contacts involved.
