SAP offers two system landscapes and three system landscapes as a standard, depending on the use case.
Development and production are two systems.
Development, Quality, and Production are the three systems. But, with some additional expense, the Rise contract may be adjusted for a 4, 5, or 6… system landscape depending on the use case.

Users also receive the following peripherals in addition to the S/4 system for various purposes.

- SAP Cloud Connector (optional, on customer request)
- Enterprise Support
- SAP Fiori embedded
What’s more? Users also receive network assistance in case they need to link their S/4 system to other third-party service providers, such as an SMTP and SMS gateway provider.
#4 Who decides which cloud platform service provider to switch to?
The end user completely controls selecting your preferred cloud platform provider.
Users currently have the alternatives of Azure, Alibaba, Amazon, and Google Cloud. Cloud Infrastructure Providers will eventually include IBM cloud as well.
#5 What are the high-end factors customers should choose when deciding between public and private clouds?
Choosing between Private and Public clouds can be a severe issue. So, if you’re a user confused with your options, here’s an overview:
You can choose Private Cloud if you, as a customer, want:
- To maintain earlier investments, such as ECC customizations, settings, and partner add-ons, while transferring to the cloud at your own speed.
- Obtain software, support, and technical managed services through a single point of contact with a set SLA.
- To utilize the S/4HANA system with a basic solution while also wanting to do customization in accordance with your company’s needs.
You can choose Public Cloud if you, as a customer, want:
- To have a comprehensive, contemporary, native SaaS ERP system, to reap the benefits of the public cloud, to rethink business processes, and to profit from best practices that are widely accepted.
- To avoid changing existing ERP processes and setups in order to have a pure Cloud ERP solution.
- To achieve a low TCO.
#6 What is the scope of BASIS/IaaS Service?
Although SAP offers RACI standard services, a lot of technical work—including Fiori Developers, BASIS, ABAP, Sizing, and Security—remains to be done by the client or partner.
The scope of SAP Managed services does not include the services offered by Hyperscaler platform services.
Technical managed services include BASIS Services, and RISE collaborates with the SAP team to complete around 80% of SAP BASIS tasks.
Below are included in the final 20%.
Importing transport, managing roles and authorizations, maintaining RFCs and system connections, setting up SMTP, maintaining SICF services, etc.
The primary responsibility of a BASIS consultant (from the partner or client side) is to coordinate technical services by submitting SAP service requests.
#7 How RISE with SAP ensures service resiliency?
No single point of failure exists at any layer of the solution, including the network, applications, and databases, and high availability of 99.7% in the production system is ensured.
All other necessary infrastructure, including the network, storage, and hypervisor, has redundancy.
Virtual machines supply applications that offer a high level of redundancy.
