We will tackle the importance of SAP RISE deployment options. Also, let us tackle the benefits that it gives from companies that use it.
What Are SAP RISE Deployment Options?
SAP RISE deployment options are the different ways to install SAP RISE. It is very important to know the difference between these deployment options.
Why? It will give you the freedom to choose which one suits you best. Let us tackle some of these options so that you have a rough idea of what they are.
On-Premise Or Cloud
As already explained, SAP RISE can be installed on-premise or in the cloud. You can choose whichever one suits you best.
But before you make this decision, let’s go through some pros and cons of each one. This will give you the knowledge to make a decision on which one is better for you.
An on-premise installation means that SAP RISE will be installed on your company’s server. This means that your SAP RISE system will be hosted in your company’s data center or local server room.
It means that the application will be hosted on your local server and accessed from within the network of your company. There are many benefits to having an on-premise installation such as:
Access from anywhere in the world:
It is possible to access your SAP RISE application from anywhere in the world. So as long as it is connected to a network that has Internet access.
It gives you more flexibility as it does not require a monthly subscription fee as it is hosted on your server or local data center.
Having an on-premise installation is cheaper compared to a cloud-based installation. Since there are no monthly subscription fees required for using your data center or local server room.
Backups are easier since it is hosted here locally and not in the cloud or remote location where it may be difficult to reach. Even if there is a disaster happening outside.
It may still be accessed because it is not hosted in another location far away from where it was originally installed. But there are also disadvantages with having an on-premise installation such as:
Bandwidth restriction may also tie-up with the bandwidth of whatever network where it was installed into. Also, it should be considered in case you need to scale up later on.
Security measures should be placed so that only authorized users can access your SAP RISE application. Especially if this system contains sensitive data and information.
Such as companies that handle credit card information for customers.
This may require you to hire a company or employee to do this task for you. You may also need to update the system with the latest patches and updates every so often.
So this can be very expensive and sometimes, it can be inconvenient.
There are several benefits and disadvantages of both on-premise and cloud. It is up to your company’s preference on which one is better for you.
As different companies may have different needs such as security, flexibility, cost, and bandwidth restriction. But in the end, you may want to consider the best option for your company.
So this will enable you to do your tasks more effectively by using the right deployment option.
