On-Premise vs SaaS

SAP ERP can be deployed on two S/4HANA delivery platforms: On-premise for maximum control, and in the cloud for fast time-to-value. Both have their pros and cons. Although, there is one more option: a hybrid delivery model that supports both on-premise and on-cloud scenarios. SAP S/4HANA on-premise edition is an internal platform, located on your servers, maintained by your company. SAP upgrades are released annually but have to be implemented and tested by your team. SAP S/4HANA Cloud edition is Software as a Service (SaaS) hosted on SAP’s servers and is maintained by SAP. Software upgrades happen quarterly. The cloud version is available to enterprises in both private and public editions. While private cloud comprises complete S/4HANA functionality and also extends geographical reach, the public cloud helps address challenges in the LOB, overall strategy and ERP.
