SAP S/4HANA
A reimagined suite to reimagine business
 

1

Written natively for the SAP HANA platform, SAP S/4HANA is the new generation of SAP Business Suite launched in 2015. It offers cloud, on-premises and hybrid deployment options to provide more choices to customers. Some of the benefits include: a smaller data footprint, higher throughput, faster analytics and reports, SAP HANA Cloud Platform extension, multitenancy and faster access to data (social, text, geo, graph and processing). It also allows existing SAP Business Suite customers to upgrade to this product from SAP Business Suite instead of re-implementing.

SAP S/4HANA, the next generation business suite designed to help organizations run simply in the digital economy. This new suite is built on the SAP advanced in-memory platform, SAP HANA, and offers a personalized user experience with SAP Fiori. Deployable in the cloud or on-premises, SAP S/4HANA is built to drive instant value across lines of business and industries with the ultimate in sophistication: simplicity.

• The digital enterprise interconnects all aspects of the value chain to drive and anticipate business outcomes in real time.
