To ensure a common understanding, this blog post introduces SAP S/4HANA Cloud, public edition and provides a comparison to other editions.
SAP S/4HANA Cloud, public edition; is the SaaS-Version of SAP’s next generation ERP system, hosted and operated by SAP. The SAP S/4HANA Cloud, public edition; runs on the SAP HANA in-memory database technology allowing to process significantly higher volumes of data in shorter periods of time not only for transactional but also for the analytical workloads. Access to the SAP S/4HANA Cloud, public edition, system is only possible via the Fiori Launchpad, which was newly introduced as a part of the development of SAP S/4HANA. In a private edition the access can be provided via SAP Fiori as well as via the conventional SAP GUI.
Through regular upgrades as part of mandatory release updates, the SAP S/4HANA Cloud, public edition, solution is continuously enhanced with new technologies and supplementary functionalities. Information on planned and completed changes within the scope of the release updates is provided by SAP and can be viewed and analyzed on various websites per business area.
Compared to other deployment models, SAP S/4HANA Cloud, public edition, is standardized and partly pre-configured, while still offering core ERP and industry-specific functionality. This deployment model results in a shift of responsibilities, especially in those areas pertaining to IT-Audit topics. Details on that shift in responsibilities are explained in the next post of this series.
