SAP S/4HANA for Public Sector – Understanding the Digital Core

What makes SAP S/4HANA so special is the fact that it’s a combination of technologies working together to unlock new opportunities. At the center of it is a mission-critical platform that businesses rely on since decades: Enterprise Resource Planning.

But S/4HANA is not a traditional ERP limited by legacy database technologies, but is the next-generation Digital Core built to fully leverage the power of in-memory. Only S/4HANA provides full insight enabling any business to predict outcomes and execute in real-time.

At the heart of it are simplified business processes cutting across all lines of business. S/4HANA combines both, transactions and analytics into one in-memory platform and offers a choice of deployment options:on-premise, in the cloud or in a hybrid combination – whaterver fits best.

The business processes and the embedded analytics are presented to users through a modern, personalized user experience: SAP Fiori. It only provides the transactions and insights the user cares about and can be run on any device.

With SAP HANA Cloud Platform the S/4HANA business processes are extended and enriched to connect to the Internet of Things, business networks and other SAP cloud solutions like SAP Ariba, Success Factors or Hybris providing end-to-end process integration and rel-time engagement with constituents, businesses, assets or the workforce.

S/4HANA bridges the gap between transactions and analytics to serve as a nerve center – the Digital Core – of the live digital enterprise.

      Excuse my confusion on this new platform.
      Can you tell me in simple words, where is the ABAP programming language in the drawing you have included in this article?
      I mean, in what part of the digital core is ABAP?
