So you are heavily literature based, with observations at SAP and SAP documents to base your case study methodology

Literature based theoretical knowledge and Case study for application

One case is a bit weak, that is why you also will try to find some documents about cloud competitors

use an article or two and maybe a book by Robert Yin explaining how the case study methodology works in theory and practice with steps to follow

Key is SAP is an example of best practices but you cannot assume or say they are better than others

There are learning you should seek from SAP and from the others

you need to write small paragraphs about what is the chapter related to before each chapter and create sub chapters as well but writing has to be in detail and not overall also try to include graphs 

its more about how SAP is the best practice for IT cloud Compliance and its 50 pages of content which excludes the references table of content and list of abbreviations, tables and figures
