This blog is intended for presales and PCA (Partner Cloud Architect) consultants working with RISE deals and have a good understanding of RISE with SAP and its terminologies. In this blog I wish to highlight the differences in the latest Bundled cloud services offered under RISE with SAP : Base Vs Premium Vs Premium Plus  along with an attempt to answer the below questions .

1. What is SAP Cloud Services under RISE with SAP public and private edition ?
2. What are SAP Cloud features and Bundled Cloud services under RISE with SAP ?
3. What are the differences between base, premium and premium plus under RISE with SAP S/4 HANa Cloud, private edition?.
4. What are the differences between base and premium under RISE with SAP S/4HANA Cloud (Public edition / SaaS)?

Before explaining the above information, we need to understand what are SAP Cloud Service Softwares provided under RISE?

SAP Cloud service software under RISE with SAP, are the software/services that are offered under RISE construct.  Eg:RISE WITH SAP S/4HANA CLOUD, PRIVATE EDITION; RISE WITH SAP S/4HANA CLOUD, PRIVATE EDITION, BASE OPTION AND BASE; RISE WITH SAP S/4HANA CLOUD, PRIVATE EDITION, PREMIUM; AND RISE WITH SAP S/4HANA CLOUD, PRIVATE EDITION, PREMIUM PLUS, SAP S/4HANA CLOUD, DIGITAL ACCESS, PRIVATE EDITION etc. A detailed list of such services available are described under respective service description guides(SDG). Customers can use only the Cloud Service Software that they have subscribed to explicitly with RISE contract.

What are Cloud features and Bundled Cloud Service?

Some of the features integrated into the Cloud Service are known as “Cloud Features”. These are provisioned on the SAP Business Technology Platform, a multitenant cloud platform (“BTP”) and interact with the Cloud Services that are provisioned under RISE.

Once the customer subscribes to SAP Cloud Services, the customer will receive access to some of the additional, multitenant cloud services called “Bundled Cloud Services”.

As per SDGs "

    1. Cloud Features may be provisioned on the SAP Business Technology Platform and in a different data center location from S/4HANA Cloud

    1. Cloud Features do not include the same service elements that apply to the S/4HANA Cloud and

    1. The Service Level Agreement does not apply to Cloud Features"


SAP has categorized these bundled services into base, premium and Premium Plus.


(NOTE:

    1. In general, BTP services can be consumed using CPEA credit (Cloud Platform Enterprise Agreement) or Pay-As-you-go as a part of a consumption-based commercial model. Subscription-Based Commercial Model is also available for BTP services consumption

 

    1. Use of each Bundled Cloud Service is subject to the supplemental terms located at http://www.sap.com/agreementscloud-supplement)
