"SOAR with Accenture combines our market-tested industry and business function assets, cloud expertise, integration architecture, extensibility recommendations, and end-to-end services for every stage of a RISE with SAP transformation journey."

— Caspar Borggreve, Global Accenture SAP Business Group Lead

Succeeding in the current period of compressed transformation—expansive and concurrent change where leaders are simultaneously transforming multiple functions across the enterprise at great speed—means dramatically increasing the percentage of a company’s workloads in the cloud. It also means moving beyond leveraging the cloud for cost reasons only, driving instead toward innovation and new business and operating models.

Accenture and SAP are responding to these challenges with new solution suites and assets.

RISE with SAP is a comprehensive set of packages, with SAP S/4HANA Cloud at the core, to help companies transform and innovate, redesign business processes, reduce internal complexity, and adopt new business models in the cloud. RISE with SAP is offered on a subscription basis, enabling clients to run their SAP estate in a SaaS-like model with cloud economics.

SOAR with Accenture is a solution and service portfolio that complements and is optimized for RISE with SAP deployments. It increases the value clients realize from RISE with SAP and accelerates their journey to and in the cloud. SOAR with Accenture combines our market-tested industry and business function assets, cloud expertise, integration architecture, extensibility recommendations, and end-to-end services for every stage of a transformation journey.

"Instead of being 20% in the cloud and 80% on-premise, those numbers will be reversed for companies in the coming years."

— Caspar Borggreve, Global Accenture SAP Business Group Lead
