SAP S/4 HANA Event Series in New York and Chicago

Simplify to Innovate Forum

Beat complexity. Run simple. Innovate with SAP S/4HANA.

Every few decades, we’re presented with an opportunity to truly achieve revolutionary change. And that time is now

Learn whyand find out what you should be doing about it.

CEOs are increasingly driving growth agendas and demanding that their leaders innovate in ways to support that growth. At the same time, customers are demanding better customized products and services at lightning-fast speeds.

Yet, in critical areas like IT and finance, more than 70% of available resources are typically dedicated to just “keeping the lights on.” Innovation that could unleash growth is constrained by thousands of strands of complexity and legacy processes that chew up resources and hamstring agility. Irrelevance looms.

We have an answer. It’s called Simplify to Innovate.

      Hi Jeyaseen,

      1. I cannot give you details about concrete opportunities nor details in the regions. But indeed, there is a global interest on S/4Hana. Please keep in mind that simple logistics is planned to be released end of 2015.

      2. I would strongly recommend that you learn more about simple finance, since experienced consultants are good for the adoption in the market.
