SAP S/4HANA Cloud is a comprehensive, modular cloud ERP supported by AI and analytical technologies that enables management of mission-critical operations in real time from anywhere and introduces new business models to the enterprise which allow customers to expand globally.
SAP S/4HANA is much more than just a next-generation ERP, and in the Industry 4.0 environment it provides fully unique functionality and performance: it puts data management at the service of integrated process management that functions in real-time.
For the order cycle, it enables process redundancies to be eliminated and bottlenecks to be minimised at the various stages of production and in the supply chain, integrating supply chain operations data with data that monitor warehouse activities.
In addition to simplifying information skimming, the solution provides rapid access, transmission and processing, and extreme data sharing security. This is made possible by the new SAP Fiori interface, which offers a new user experience that is both satisfying and intuitive. It allows any type of user multi-device access to the results of the analyses conducted by the platform, making use of appealing graphics and usability that encourages a collaborative experience.
To extend and customise the SAP S/4HANA environment or to integrate and connect entire infrastructures, SAP has provided SAP BTP, a set of tools and services that bring together data, analytics, artificial intelligence, application development, automation and integration into a single unified environment.
Another essential component is SAP Analytics Cloud, which, integrated with the SAP ecosystem and all other enterprise data sources, delivers a unified solution which creates business value through data analytics and by building increasingly effective predictive models.
Specifically, the combination of SAP Analytics Cloud with SAP S/4HANA enables Finance department teams to plan resource usage with great precision, which is critical in responding more quickly to scenario changes while gaining a competitive advantage even in difficult situations.
Compatibility with various business systems is also ensured by SAP Datasphere, the next-generation data warehouse solution which combines advanced capabilities in a unified service for integration cataloguing and semantic modelling of data: data warehousing and workload virtualisation is performed seamlessly between SAP and non-SAP inputs.
