Intelligent ERP Summary: SAP S/4HANA Cloud 1808 Release
As planned, SAP has released SAP S/4HANA Cloud 1808 on August 6, 2018. After two great releases in the first half of the year, we’ve been working as hard as ever to deliver the best intelligent cloud ERP the market has ever seen. Leveraging additional Machine Learning and Natural Language Interaction scenarios, SAP S/4HANA Cloud 1808 now offers dozens of intelligent features helping companies to scale their business and increase agility. More details are available in my article on SAP News Center.
Besides all the innovations and enhancements which our new release offers in order to further power the intelligent enterprise suite, SAP S/4HANA Cloud recently became SAP’s first cloud service to receive a C5 attestation, which supports stringent compliance requirements. As more and more cloud customers require a C5 attestation, this is a significant step forward in our cloud journey.
