What is S/4 HANA?

Posted by

We all have been amazed with the new introduction by SAP which is known to become a new trend setter for the way SAP has been helping businesses to grow.

S/4 HANA is that buzzword……..

There has been a lot of gossip about this SAP S/4 HANA and it’s newly introduced Simple Finance.S/4 HANA is a new Business Suite introduced by SAP. This will replace the SAP ERP to revolutionise the whole world with the time and again proven capabilities of SAP with modern day software to speedup your business to an awesomely new peaks which were nothing more than a dream just a few years back.

Now with this lets try to understand what this new concept is all about.

S/4 HANA

You would find a lot of information (tsunami of information) about this new innovation by SAP. But we will try to understand it in simple terms that even a layman can understand:

  • It is a new initiative by SAP
  • The main aim of this initiative is to Run Simple
  • Simplification has been the main purpose of this new concept
  • Greater Speed is other dimension that S/4 HANA has been able to achieve

It would be interesting to know the advantages of SAP S/4 HANA, given below are just a tip of a huge ice burg:

  • In Memory Computing
  • Guided Configurations
  • User Experience (UX) instead  of Graphical User Interface (GUI)
  • Available on mobile phones, tablets, laptops, desktops with same level detail
  • On the fly decision making

Yes…..Yes…..the old grey colour rigid screen is an affair of past……………

All of the above could become possible only due to the modern day techniques and the new technology called “In Memory Computing”. This new technique reduces data footprints and information processing time to such a level that now you can do computing in minutes which required hours in old days. Now those days really are old days. Also this initiative has been a step by SAP towards big data market.

With S/4 HANA SAP has introduced their first component “Simple Finance”

We all have been experiencing the old boring standard grey colour scheme of SAP. It is no more the same……… SAP has taken a leap towards making it not just high tech but also mobile friendly. Yes mobile friendly. You can open an application (app as very well know to all) called FIORI which will help you perform many transactions like Purchase Order Approval, viewing critical MIS etc. on the go. At the same time the user is now not required to log into the old GUI, but they can login to the new FIORI on their desktop for doing all their transactions in a web based form. This really looks stunning…….

So by introducing S/4 HANA i.e. Business Suite in HANA, SAP has really taken a serious step towards being with the time by bringing the ERP to “Mobile screen”. “Tablet Screen”, “IPAD Screen” and most importantly without requiring more customisation……..

So we take a leave here and will soon come with more information on SAP S/4 HANA and Simple Finance.

Good Day……
