BMW will intensify its far-reaching strategic partnership with SAP. The aim is to significantly accelerate the digital transformation of the company. The manufacturer is building on its cloud strategy to digitalize faster, more comprehensively and more efficiently in the future. The entire SAP landscape will be migrated to RISE for this purpose. By merging the cloud strategy with the future developments of the landscape on S/4 Hana, joint innovations for important business areas such as finance, parts supply, warehousing, supply chain, and production will be driven forward.
RISE enables BMW to use the latest cloud and SAP technologies as a platform for innovation and digitalization, and ultimately to merge private and public cloud solutions into a seamless user experience. The two companies are thus jointly moving away from a traditional SAP licensing model towards a holistic operating model that provides infrastructure, operations, and software from a single source. As part of RISE, the BMW and SAP are entering into a partnership of equals and are jointly shaping digital processes for the automotive industry.
