RISE with SAP Offers an Efficient and Agile Approach to Digital Transformation

ATLANTA, June 04, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lemongrass today announced significant enhancements to its services portfolio by introducing new RISE with SAP Advisory offerings. Aimed at guiding Enterprises through their transformation journeys with SAP technologies, this suite of services is designed to support Enterprises as they shift towards a more dynamic, Cloud-based environment using RISE with SAP, a comprehensive, transformation-as-a-service solution offered by SAP.

RISE with SAP centralizes transformation tools into a subscription-based platform, enabling businesses to simplify and accelerate their migration to Cloud solutions. Lemongrass’s enhanced advisory services are meticulously crafted to support this transition by providing strategic guidance on SAP S/4HANA readiness, application compatibility, and comprehensive transformation strategies.

Lemongrass, whose software-enabled platform and services provide clients with near-zero downtime migrations and operations for SAP and its related workloads, has significant experience helping Enterprises make the move from on-premises SAP to the Cloud. The company has over 8,000 SAP servers and over 750,000 SAP users under its management.

"With the launch of our RISE with SAP Advisory Offerings, Lemongrass affirms its commitment to delivering innovation through technology as well as offering strategic insights for our customers’ operational excellence," said Michael Rosenbloom, CEO of Lemongrass. "These added services, combined with the advisory experience of our team, help clients achieve a seamless and efficient transformation."

Lemongrass's RISE with SAP Advisory Offerings encompass:

  • Strategic Advisory and Planning: Tailored guidance to align SAP strategies with business objectives, ensuring a transformation roadmap that delivers value across all business functions.
  • S/4HANA Readiness Assessments: Comprehensive evaluations of existing SAP landscapes to determine the best path to SAP S/4HANA, leveraging Lemongrass’s proprietary methodologies and tools.
  • Financial and Operational Planning: Detailed analysis and planning services to help Enterprises understand all the financial implications of moving to RISE with SAP, ensuring transparency and predictability in costs and outcomes.
  • Migration Strategy and Roadmapping: Development of a custom migration approach, operational considerations, and continuous innovation strategies to ensure a smooth transition to SAP S/4HANA.
  •  Architecture Planning: Designing optimal system architectures for supporting both legacy systems on their RISE deployment as well as identifying and implementing services supporting the maintenance of these architectures.

“These successful engagements underscore Lemongrass’s capability to deliver tailored solutions that meet the unique demands of large-scale Enterprises,” said Eamonn O’Neill, Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer at Lemongrass. “Our advisory services offer businesses a simplified yet flexible approach to their SAP environment transformation, including SAP and non-SAP applications. This ensures enhanced security, business continuity, and holistic platform integration.”

In addition to the new advisory services, the company also offers a suite of services that complement and support SAP with RISE operations including:

  • Lemongrass Migration Services is a proprietary migration technology, 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.
