The digital necessity
We are at an important technological turning point
Everything will be networked and software will be present in every area of our lives. This change brings new opportunities and risks. New products will be developed 5 to 10 times faster and companies can only survive in the market if business models are simplified or completely reinvented and create added value for customers and shareholders with data. SAP S/4HANA is your key to this: you can become a digital company and turn this value creation into reality.
Time ahead with SAP S/4HANA
A digital core supports all requirements of the 21st century. To achieve more, companies must develop new business models and processes and change the way their employees work. This requires innovations that bridge the gap between transaction and decision making systems. For this purpose, SAP developed the revolutionary, column-based in-memory platform SAP HANA.
SAP HANA helps companies reinvent themselves. Based on SAP HANA, SAP S/4HANA has been developed, the next generation suite, a “digital core" that provides real-time insight into the organization, enables intelligence beyond automation, and connects not only departments but the entire world. SAP S/4HANA is also complemented by a range of applications to further increase the value added for companies.
Your way to digitalization
The paths to digitalization are as unique as each individual company. Whether it is an initial implementation or the digitization of an existing SAP environment, we have experience with companies of all sizes and from most industries. Based on this close cooperation, SAP has put together a comprehensive offering that allows you to define your roadmap to SAP S/4HANA – no matter where you are.
Four steps to success
No matter where you are – with this structured, four-step method your digitalization will be a success.
Three migrations paths to SAP S/4HANA
New customers – or existing customers who want to start over – start with a new installation of SAP S/4HANA and migrate their master and transaction data using the integrated data management and data quality tools.
Convert your existing ERP system to SAP HANA and SAP S/4HANA in a single step and then gradually adapt your individualizations and business processes to the new features; completely without reimplementation.
Simplify your existing system environment by merging individual systems or outsourcing individual business processes (e.g. to a central financial accounting system).
