Welcome to the exciting world of RISE with SAP S/4HANA Cloud Private Edition! As a customer or partner, you know that the Cloud world offers unique challenges that we are all learning to navigate together. But don’t worry – SAP is here to guide you every step of the way.

What is Embedded Launch Activities?

SAP has launched ‘Embedded Launch Activities’(EmLA) under a renewed customer engagement model that strives for continuity of an outcome based relationship, with focus on faster adoption of leading practices and value realization for our customers. EmLA is a product entitlement that comes with new RISE with SAP S/4HANA Cloud Private Edition subscriptions at no additional cost, upon contract signature after April 1st, 2024.

EmLA begins with tailored customer-facing sessions designed to lay the foundation for a successful implementation for the project team and the customer. These sessions include:

  • An introduction to RISE with SAP S/4HANA Cloud Private Edition to help the customer navigate their RISE with SAP entitlements and system access.
  • When relevant, an overview of SAP Cloud ALM will be provided to discuss its critical functionalities and assist with the setup.
  • A focus on the SAP Clean Core Quality Gate to ensure readiness for the SAP Activate Prepare Phase in alignment with the SAP Clean Core strategy

A customer onboarding advisor will contact your designated IT Contact at the contract start to conduct these sessions.
