What is SAP S/4 HANA

SAP S/4 HANA Enterprise Management is SAP’s next-generation Digital Core and is a new product. With SAP S/4 HANA, we are building on the success of the SAP Business Suite powered by SAP HANA

  • SAP S/4 HANA is running on SAP HANA for massive simplifications (simplified data model: no indexes, no aggregates, no redundancies) and innovations, for example, open in-memory platform for advanced applications predicting, recommending, and simulating.
  • SAP S/4 HANA is natively designed with SAP Fiori UX, offering an integrated user experience with modern usability and instant insight on any device (role-based, three steps max to get the job done, mobile-first, consistent experience across lines of business).
  • SAP S/4 HANA is natively connected to the internet of things and business networks for real-time collaboration (planned: machine-to-machine, Ariba Network, Concur) in the networked economy.
  • SAP S/4 HANA is natively engineered for providing choice of deployment (on premise, cloud and hybrid).
  • SAP S/4 HANA is natively born for easy adoption (guided, configuration, and easy on-boarding, from the discovery of the solution through cloud trials to deployment with pre-configured best practices).
  • In addition, SAP HANA Cloud Platform serves as open extension, agility layer for SAP S/4 HANA. The extensions built on the cloud platform can run against either deployment of SAP S/4HANA in the cloud and on premise.
