SAP S/4HANA is a next-generation business suite built on the most advanced in-memory computing, the SAP HANA platform, which incorporates some of the most modern design principles with the SAP Fiori user experience (UX). With SAP S/4HANA, digital enterprises can drive instant value across lines of business and industries with the ultimate sophistication of simplicity.
In fact, SAP S/4HANA can deliver massive simplifications (in areas such as customer adoption, data model, user experience, and decision making) along with innovations (such as the Internet of Things, Big Data, and mobile first). This powerful combination can empower companies to reduce complexity and rapidly transform their businesses.
From a business-value perspective, this means that SAP S/4HANA creates unique opportunities to reinvent business models and drive new revenues and profits. With this powerful business suite, enterprises can now easily connect to people, devices, and business networks to deliver new value in any industry.
In addition, enterprises can dramatically simplify their business processes, driving them in real time and changing them as needed to gain new efficiencies. And finally, business users can now get any insight on any data from anywhere in real time, from planning and execution to prediction and simulation. That means decisions can be made on the fly with a high level of granularity for faster business impact.
Simplifying business from the boardroom down
To see how digital transformation can change businesses, consider executivelevel decision making. Business leaders in the digital economy need contextualized, real-time information to make decisions instantly and drive change for the future. Today, most of these leaders are challenged by heterogeneous reporting solutions and meetings dominated by static content.
But that's all about to change.
Recently, SAP shared its vision for a "Boardroom Redefined," an innovation project that contextualises the boardroom, places, and devices into a real-time enterprise experience. A harmonised view of company operations using realtime reporting capabilities gives leaders the ability to instantly understand the past, predict the future, and drive more efficient execution.
SAP S/4HANA can empower boardlevel discussions with instant insight for driving real-time business interactions and fact-based decisions that help companies lead in the digital economy. That's how the power of running simple drives the digital transformation.
