Top 7 Benefits of SAP S/4HANA

Performance and Agility.

The first big change we can mention is that the S/4HANA runs exclusively on SAP HANA, main database in in-memory computing of SAP. This means that programs like S/4HANA can make the most of the excellent transaction, processing, and reporting speeds native to SAP HANA, as opposed to other slower options. Functions that typically run in minutes take just seconds, enabling optimal business performance and a higher level of customer service using real-time data. #GoSapS4Hana

If there was a word to summarize SAP S/4HANA would be simplicity.
Even this is a great curiosity: The 'S' in 'S4HANA' actually derives from the word 'Simple' in English.

With this highly simplified solution, companies are able to manage your IT landscape effortlessly, in a way never seen before. When combined with enterprise-wide cloud adoption, SAP S/4HANA centralizes and unifies hardware and network resources for ultimate business performance, acting as a digital hub for business process simplification, harnessing the power of its HANA in-memory database.

Reduced cost of ownership.

While it may not seem right away, adopting SAP S/4HANA is a highly economical solution. This is mainly because, with it, companies are able to combine the analytics and transactional capabilities from many different systems in a single solution – reducing overheads and providing centralized control. Eliminating the need to manually collect reports from these different sources saves time and effort, while providing much more accurate and detailed results.

Adopting S/4HANA is a smart move as cost efficiency is considered. You have the ability to bring together all the analytical and transactional capabilities of a variety of systems in one place. This allows for much better and clearer decision making, with savings in the end.


The word we all love, # comes innovation!
Cloud adoption is at the top when it comes to technology innovation in business, and SAP S/4HANA is a key driving force behind it. The cloud has opened up a broad platform for different software vendors to experiment with and provide a variety of innovative products for commercial use, which expand the vast capabilities of S/4HANA.

Worldwide, SAP S/4HANA is fast becoming SAP's most successful ERP system. For more than four decades, enterprise resource planning (ERP) software has been at the heart of SAP. The technology is evolving rapidly, which means that just “following up” is not the best option. Companies need to stay ahead and make decisions that make them ready for the future. S/4HANA apps leverage speed, context and data accessibility like never before.

Improved performance.

Another new addition to SAP S/4HANA is that it comes with improved performance, allowing you to plan, run, report and analyze based on live data, as well as provide improved forecasting. It also allows your organization to provide better service for customer-centric applications.

Overall, the basic benefits of migrating or moving to the SAP S/4HANA system for a customer using ECC are extremely high. There is definitely a question as to whether a customer should switch completely to HANA or have a combination of ECC and HANA, but for better system performance and overall improvement in effectiveness, the sooner a customer switches to HANA, the better off it will be for them.

Support acquisition capacity and strategy.

Last but not least: Eliminate the limitations of the current technical architecture. The digital core of S/4HANA enables companies to take advantage of the latest technologies, providing the ability to establish a standardized, simpler platform for autonomous companies and enables enhanced integration, reporting and communication capabilities.
