back to article SAP's home crowd fails to RISE to the bait with lift-and-shift-to-the-cloud offer

The German-speaking SAP user group (DSAG) has published a decidedly downbeat survey revealing attitudes to RISE with SAP, the application company's big sell to get its entrenched customer base to the cloud. In joint research with the Americas SAP User Group (ASUG), DSAG has shown only 12 per cent of its members say the RISE …

    Only saps use SAP.

    Saps that use SAP have their finances sapped right out of their bank while SAP saps your will to live through its buzzword bingo infused bullshit powers.

    It seems to me it's a bad idea to have its ERP in the cloud. Have a local problem as a WAN fiber cut because of civil engineering or a failing ISP then all the production is stopped, the company put to a halt. Do bean counters take that into account in their financial projections? I doubt it.

      That can happen no matter where your ERP system is hosted, unless it is hosted on site.

        True, and most companies have their users distributed all over the place, not in a single building. If you look at the real downtimes of on prem vs cloud ERP, on prem is unavailable far more often.... Also, if your company totally loses internet, you are screwed anyway. Great that you can still do accounting. Not so great that all of your online ordering systems, email, commerce, etc are down so there is nothing to account for on your ERP.

    There are so many large companies looking at migrating off of SAP right now. SAP overplayed their hand. I am surprised by the number of companies who are leaving. It was definitely bold of SAP to mandate that their users move to HANA, we don't care if you don't want to, and you are going to reimplement SAP to a not SaaS solution.

    Rise is a joke

    IMO Rise offers little to no business benefits. Marketing jargon is transformation as a service......They provide a signavio report highlighting some potential confugurations that could be used. For any company that has spent years implementing and incrementally improving their SAP landscapes, this comes off as pure marketing fluff. All Rise does is offer a commercial mechanism for SAP to transfer you to subscription software model and lock you in since you no longer own the software. If you ever want to move from SAP's managed services, you will have to REPURCHASE on prem licenses and MIGRATE your landscapes since they will not transfer a hyperscaler account or VPC over to you.
