SAP C/4HANA On-Premise and Cloud Based Deployments

Offering complete deployment flexibility, and a variety of deployment options, SAP C/4HANA ensures customers can select the precise deployment configuration that suits their business objectives and aligns with their resourcing requirements.

On-premise Deployment

On-premise software is ideal for customers looking for full control and management of the solution. While it can require a longer time to market and higher ongoing costs, the on-premise option provides access to the widest range of product features.

On-Demand Deployment

Hybris On-Demand is perfect for companies looking for a commerce solution that offers lightning fast setup, quick time to value, infrastructure elasticity, no maintenance overhead, and that don’t require significant customization or access to the full range of features.

Hybrid Deployment

In addition to offering both on-premise and on-demand versions of the software, hybris is the only multichannel commerce vendor in the industry that offers a seamless path between on-demand and on-premise deployment. Because both options are based on the same technology stack, you can easily upgrade from on-demand to on-premise, ensuring a futureproof solution. For example, you could start with on-demand to cost-effectively launch a business – or test a new market or channel – then easily move to on-premise when you’ve proven success and built critical mass. Or, after starting with the on-demand model and finding you want more control and customization over several aspects of the solution, you could move just those parts of the application on-premise. You could even add new functionality – such as order management – to your on-premise deployment incrementally by “outsourcing” it to the on-demand module. You are free to determine where to “make the cut” between on-premise and on-demand, giving you the ultimate flexibility in supporting the deployment model that makes the most sense for your business.
