Reimagine Business with S/4 HANA


Simplicity to connect to people, devices, and business networks in real time to unlock the potential of the networked economy and deliver new experiences and value to customers. The Internet of Things and Big Data become accessible to any business – no more complex business collaboration and interactions.


Simplicity to get any insight on any data from anywhere in real time: planning, execution, prediction, and simulation are now all done on the fly at the highest level of granularity to drive faster business impact – no more complex data consolidation through Microsoft Excel.


Simplicity to focus on the essential tasks in real-time and gain flexibility and agility to change business processes as needed for new efficiencies – no more extensive batch processing.

Business leaders in the digital economy need contextualized, real-time information to make the decisions needed today and enable change to drive the future outcomes. Today, most of these leaders are challenged by heterogeneous reporting solutions and meetings dominated by static content. The Boardroom Redefined reinvents the Boardroom with a new enterprise experience giving business leaders an instant and harmonized view across all company operations. Using real-time reporting capabilities, leaders have the ability to instantly understand the past, predict the future and drive immediate decision and execution. With SAP S/4HANA, the boardroom discussions are based on instant insight, resulting in live interactions and fact-based decision making.

Reimagine IT with S/4 HANA


Shrink your data footprint – and your IT costs – with a simplified data model. Say goodbye to indices, aggregates, and data redundancies once and for all. When the business wants a new reporting model or process, you no longer have to spend days or even weeks rebuilding aggregates and ETL scripts (Extract, Transform, Load).


Simplify your deployment by aligning it to business needs. SAP S/4HANA gives you choice with two editions – on-premise and cloud – and easy adoption for faster time to value.


Leverage an open platform to innovate advanced applications – predicting, recommending, simulating – for driving future growth while protecting your existing investments. The SAP HANA Cloud Platform serves as open extension, agility layer for SAP S/4HANA. The extensions built on the cloud platform can run against either deployment of SAP S/4HANA: in the cloud and on premise.
