Options: on-premise vs. cloud hosting

Not every customer is willing to store valuable corporate data in a foreign cloud. Even though modern cloud platforms are highly secure, for compliance reasons it may be best to host SAP S/4HANA in a dedicated environment.

On-premise (own servers):

  • Customers take on the management, maintenance, and software development themselves, including the HANA database.
  • Better fulfilment of compliance requirements.
  • More control, but also more responsibility.

Cloud (Software as a Service):

  • No customer maintenance required, as the software is provided as a service.
  • Higher flexibility and scalability.
  • Potential cost advantages, e.g. due to reduced administrative effort.

Choosing between on-premise and cloud depends on individual requirements. We offer personalised assessments tailored to your business and technical needs. Contact our expert team for further information.
