Accelerate your Journey to RISE with SAP with Lemongrass

RISE with SAP is a compelling solution for modern Enterprises running SAP who want to convert their existing software licenses to a subscription model and leverage SAP for a complete managed service. The challenge to adopting RISE with SAP is that it is designed as a platform for SAP S/4HANA. Typical SAP landscapes have a rich and tightly integrated environment of SAP, non-SAP, and legacy SAP components that will never move to SAP S/4HANA yet are essential to the operation of the business. Lemongrass’s portfolio of services is optimized to support deployments of RISE with SAP and help companies use technology to redesign business processes for more predictable outcomes and accelerate time-to-value while also driving innovation.


  • Simple – One partner to migrate required systems and manage the transition to RISE with SAP. Security and business continuity solutions are included as well as operational alignment across SAP and non-SAP applications
  • Flexible – Ability to scale infrastructure up and down dynamically and enable new agile ways of working
  • Efficient – Minimized network latency between systems as the non-SAP supported applications will run the same hyperscale platform as SAP S/4HANA
  • Accessible – Easy access from RISE with SAP to Cloud Native technologies (i.e., Redshift, Synapse or Big Query) working through established SAP integration (BTP)

RISE with SAP Services

SAP clients embarking on transformational initiatives now have even more delivery models to consider. Our Advisory services are designed to identify business challenges, define a transformation vision and build a business case to guide their roadmap, delivery, change management and continuous innovation. We also help to design and implement a Cloud operating model that delivers the most value from the RISE platform including:

  • Discovery which includes mapping key systems with high data gravity and connectivity to future state SAP S/4HANA through a rapid migration prototyping methodology leveraging the Lemongrass Cloud Platform (LCP)
  • An SAP Readiness Check for SAP S/4HANA to test and identify areas that need immediate remediation and capture dependent non-SAP environments that need to be migrated along with the SAP systems.
  • A plan to designate systems compatible with RISE and identify any non-RISE-compatible systems. This could include Application Archiving for applicable systems.
  • SAP transformation strategy supported by a business case, migration approach and roadmap along with Operational considerations and recommendations.

Lemongrass has over a decade of experience performing large heterogeneous migrations with minimal downtime and business disruption. Lemongrass has developed a proprietary migration technology, LIM (Lemongrass Implementation Methodology) that accommodates RISE-specific migrations and has already successfully delivered multiple RISE migration scenarios efficiently and with minimal risk including S/4HANA transformations, conversions to Suite on HANA, and S/4HANA to S/4HANA Cloud Migrations.
