Building Organizational Resilience: The “Experience SAP S/4HANA” Community Featuring SAP’s Strategic Partners

Let’s get connected and engage each other online as part of the SAP Community.


SAP CEO Christian Klein recently shared a refreshing vision for a safer, healthier and more prosperous future – one that is driven by becoming an intelligent enterprise. This aspiration adds value during the pandemic and beyond.

The new SAP S/4HANA infographic called, “Building Resilience in Turbulent Times” explains these goals centered on three key areas:

  1. Overcoming challenge
  2. Identifying the pillars of resilience
  3. Building systematic resilience

These attributes are echoed in the IDC Market Spotlight, based on a survey to 300 SAP customers, where they shared this insight:

Evolving to an intelligent enterprise means the organization must implement an operational foundation for future innovation. IDC calls that evolution intelligent ERP1.

The many Experience SAP S/4HANA participants including Atos, Capgemini, HPE, IBM, Intel, Infosys, Microsoft, PwC, Red Hat, and SUSE share these intelligent ERP and intelligent enterprise values with SAP and customers.

Perhaps the best exemplars are SAP customers who worked with these SAP partner companies to address their challenges through business and technology solutions including:
