SAP S/4 HANA is the new ERP for SAP clients. It runs on SAP HANA which is SAP’s proprietary in-memory database technology and provides tools to process huge amount of real time data and thus making it invaluable for many businesses. S/4 HANA reduces the complexity of your IT and generates a flow of information in real time. It lets you quickly and effectively implement business processes, map future processes and process components in a stable way, and supplement flexible micro services in the cloud platform or through other cloud solutions.
While there are several reasons for companies to move to S/4 HANA, the main reasons that drive the customers to make this move are:
New installation of S/4 HANA and move data from your legacy systems. New start helps utilize S/4 HANA business processes.
Convert existing SAP ECC to S/4 HANA. This is applicable for existing SAP Suite on HANA and non-HANA ERP customers.
