Cloud computing is increasingly gaining inroads in today’s fast-paced business environment, as it meets businesses’ need for more speed, agility, connectivity and simplicity. By 2020, 60% of the ERP workload will be handled in the public cloud, according to market research firms like IDC. To be ready for that shift, SAP has introduced SAP S/4 HANA Cloud – a software-as-a-service (SaaS) version of S/4 HANA that is continuously enriched with new features.
Just like S/4 HANA, the cloud version is based on SAP’s HANA in-memory database, which allows users to do business on a real-time basis. In addition, it also integrates the SAP Fiori user experience, to ensure unequalled usability. The cloud version however, is even simpler and more innovative than its on-premise counterpart.
When SAP S/4 HANA Cloud was introduced in 2016, it offered a subset of the features available in the on-premise and private cloud SAP S/4 HANA. However, SAP is investing big to extend its public cloud version as quickly as possible. Currently, SAP S/4 HANA offers three platforms, which are constantly being enhanced with new features:

What makes SAP S/4 HANA a game-changer, apart from the benefits of the cloud, are its exciting new features. Just a few examples:
