Simplification is the ultimate sophistication

SAP S/4HANA: SAP ERP revisited to help you run simple

SAP S/4HANA is SAP’s new ERP business suite. Based on SAP’s HANA in-memory platform, S/4HANA was built from scratch to integrate modern design principles. The result is a simple yet powerful ERP that opens the way to innovation.

There’s no escaping the race to digitization. Digital transformation impacts every company: our markets are changing and customers expect faster, smarter, and more personalized products and services. Do you have what it takes to respond to change and make decisions quickly? To support you in your digital transformation, SAP has launched SAP S/4HANA – its next-generation business suite.

‘Run simple’ has been SAP’s business adage for years. The business software expert strongly believes that simplicity is a must to thrive in today’s digital era. As such, it completely reinvented its ERP suite to align with that vision. Developing SAP S/4HANA implied a total rework of SAP’s core ERP technology to run it on its HANA in-memory database. On top of that, SAP introduced an entirely new user interface, Fiori, to help users run simple.

So what’s really new – and what’s in it for you?
