2025: SAP S / 4HANA, the conversion that designs the future

18 December 2019

Every innovation must offer the certainty of a leap forward that produces added value to the business. And this is the promise that SAP makes with the conversion to SAP S/4HANA expected within the next five years.

The advantages that can be measured in this step are multiple: optimized performances both in the databases and in the accounting and logistic processes, as well as in the areas of business intelligence and user experience.

There is only one goal: optimizing the processes, allowing people to focus on business issues without wasting time on low added-value operations.


A deadline not to be missed

SAP has declared that the transition to SAP S/4HANA is the "biggest launch in 23 years, possibly ever", a statement that not only stirs "the big player", but also the entire ICT sector that is analyzing the opportunities that this change can offer.

A recent IDC study shows that the value to SAP customers resulting from SAP S / 4HANA can lead to a 679% return on investment (ROI) over five years.

In designing it, SAP worked to have a single in-memory database owner, with a completely rewritten product, equipped with a latest generation user interface based on Apps, able to give accelerated performance, optimized processes and real time analysis. It's easy to understand the importance of this transition and the scope of the resulting innovation.

The deadline is 2025, the year when all installed SAP must be converted to SAP S / 4HANA.

Such a transition can be experienced by companies with two different approaches: I endure the change or I take the opportunity to innovate.

Being affected by change means passively experiencing a transition that could instead be a great opportunity to improve business processes and therefore speed up business.


The advantages of conversion in all processes

Performing the conversion to SAP S / 4HANA allows you to change the paradigm that has supported the classic ERP landscape until now.

Everything focuses on a single DB In-Memory Hana: the data model has been simplified by optimizing all business processes, something that until yesterday was not possible: from administration, finance and control - where there is no longer a clear distinction between finance and controlling area in favor of a native integration of the two worlds - to warehouse logistics, which provides the functionality of extended warehouse management for the physical management of the warehouses.

A further example of optimized business processes concerns accounting closures. Many companies spend considerable effort on this activity. SAP S / 4HANA will drastically speed up the process and optimize it as a result.


The Leap Forward in Business Intelligence

Speaking of the advantages linked to SAP S/4HANA, the issue of business intelligence cannot be ignored.

Traditionally, corporate reporting, whether operational or managerial, has always required the definition of a data warehouse that must be fed and on which to build a presentation layer, this regardless of the tool used.

SAP S/4HANA allows real time reading of the database and a native integration between the intelligent business layer and the transactional data.
This innovation is disruptive because it allows, at no cost, to have real-time information available that previously would have required days of development to be structured.


A unique experience

Another innovative element introduced with the adoption of the innovative ERP business suite is certainly the user experience. SAP S/4HANA offers access to transactions with a role-based approach: each user cluster has a role that allows access only to useful functionalities, optimizing not only the comprehension and usage times, but also making the interactions with the system more secure.

Furthermore, the user benefits from easy and intuitive APPs available via web that allow flexibility and timeliness.
