The SAP S4/HANA transition forming the basis of tomorrow’s digital innovation
Enterprise resource planning is undergoing a major upheaval. With newly emerged technologies such as Internet of Things, machine learning and automation entering the market, businesses – yours likely included – need ERP technologies that can support these new innovations. SAP’s answer is S/4HANA.
If you are a C-level executive, HANA removes bottlenecks in your decision-making, letting you respond in real time to emerging challenges and opportunities. For staff, it is providing a new, simplified and customizable user experience that is driving user adoption and making work easier. And most importantly, it is forming the basis upon which transformative technologies can be rapidly deployed, integrated and put to work improving product and service offerings, as well as customer experience.
Transitioning to S/4HANA is a key priority for countless SAP customers, however in many cases, the realization is not proving straightforward.
To date, of SAP’s 410,000 clients, only 9% have or are working towards going live with S/4HANA, with 91% currently transitioning or likely to do so. For many CIOs, CFOs and CEOs, it is a chance to reevaluate existing processes, organization and IT strategy. But as these transition projects culminate in technical conversions, it is expected a bottleneck will soon form across industry as the demand for already-stretched SAP HANA experts skyrockets.
Even now, many companies are finding implementation and scalability difficult, and that is without considering SAP transition services that go beyond basic implementation and provide valuable HANA applications customized to their business.
Thankfully, there are many options open to you if you wish to quickly and effectively master your HANA transformation:
