TechEd 2015 Lecture of the Week – SAP #S4HANA
Let me recap some key highlights from the this year Teched sessions I was allowed to do: TEC116 – Key Use Cases for SAP S/4HANA and How to Enable Them Technically. Most of the content of course in light of the latest release of SAP S/4HANA, the 1511 update.
The focus was on how SAP S/4HANA enables the digital transformation of businesses. The session explains key use-case scenarios that are helpful in driving the transformation and a compelling case to start your own journey towards SAP S/4HANA. I did explain the business drivers and the technology concepts, both important to understanding and applying the right way in your landscape.
And we see in the hundreds of projects how S/4 delivers a massive wave of simplification and innovation in the core, covering the mission-critical business processes across lines of business such as in finance, sales, service, marketing, commerce, procurement and sourcing, manufacturing, supply chain, asset management, research&development, and human resources.
And we just updated the roadmap, check out the official road map content available on Service Marketplace (Product Road Maps > Cross Product > S4HANA).
Important question that keeps coming up: if you compare, what is S/4 Enterprise Management about – scope wise?
It is simple, the feature and function parity is similar to SAP ECC 6.0x
- major innovations in core modules like Finance and Logistics areas -> let us call them Materials Management and Operations (replaces the name of the afka sLOG)
- Inclusion of additional industries in the Core
- Full leverage of the in-memory technology of SAP HANA, including the HANA Cloud Platform and the unique UX capabilities of SAP Fiori of course
We also completed a short demo on real-time Inventory management, for your viewing pleasure linked below:
Let me summarize. S/4HANA delivers a massive wave of simplification and innovation with its digital core, covering the mission-critical business processes across all lines of business.
