What does SAP S/4HANA Enterprise Management include?

Digital Transformation is forcing change in more and more areas of companies. Agile adaptations of processes and systems must be possible  without jeopardizing the integration of processes within a consolidated system landscape. In order to meet these requirements, SAP has started the transition from R/3 to a new integrated solution in S/4HANA Enterprise Management. In the process, the classic ERP modules and processes from the areas of finance and logistics are modernized in new central enterprise areas.

It is possible to start using SAP Business Suite powered by SAP HANA as well as the classic ERP system. The prerequisite for the use of future functionalities in SAP is the HANA database. 

Due to its architecture and data models, SAP S/4HANA Enterprise Management offers a significant simplification of data structures in order to gain real-time access to relevant company data. An SAP HANA database is required to use SAP S/4HANA Enterprise Management.

What does the use of SAP S/4HANA Enterprise Management offer you?

In addition to the previous possibilities of SAP Business Suite powered on SAP HANA, the switch to SAP S/4HANA Enterprise Management offers further advantages. The elimination of aggregate and index tables enables a significant reduction in the size of the database. With the help of the general simplifications of the data model, a higher transparency regarding inventory and material flow, a reduction of warehouse and safety stocks and a better responsiveness for production orders regarding process flow or even critical problems is achieved in logistics. In finance, the immediate call of the P&L for the optimization of the processes is possible. With these optimized processes, a direct reaction to environmental and disruptive factors, such as fluctuations in the warehouse, can be made.

With SAPUI5, SAP offers a browser-based interface that also supports mobile devices.
