Become a best-run business with the real-time enterprise resource planning suite built on the advanced in-memory platform, SAP HANA.

Is the latest ERP system from SAP's ERP software product line. The software is based on the innovative SAP HANA database technology and was launched as the fourth product generation in 2015. Users can choose between the SAP S/4HANA Cloud and On-Premise solution. SAP S/4 HANA assists in the demand-oriented business resource planning. It is used to control processes and to link departments and functional areas in a meaningful way.

Improved Interface

The new Fiori interface concept offers a simplified and personalized user experience. Users have faster access to important information and receive decision support and notifications. This promotes efficient and role-based work. The new design guidelines also enable the applications to be used on mobile devices.

Increased Performance

The SAP HANA in-memory database enables users to access their data in real-time. Instead of being stored on a hard disk, the data is stored in a collective form in main memory, which avoids data redundancy. This simplified data model not only reduces the size of the database, but also allows you to perform ad hoc analyses and transactional procedures in the same system.

More Flexibility

SAP S/4HANA is available in various forms and payment models. In the case of a migration, customers can choose the on-premise version, a hybrid model or the cloud version which is based on a subscription model. The latter is located on an SAP server, allowing customers to save on resources such as hardware and maintenance costs. They also benefit from shorter response times and innovation cycles.

While previous SAP ERP solutions support the most common databases, SAP S/4HANA uses exclusively the SAP HANA in-memory database developed by SAP. This offers users the greatest technical benefit and they benefit from increased performance. The "S" in S/4 HANA stands for "simple", while the "4" refers to the generation sequence. Compared to the SAP core product SAP ECC, which is still used in most companies, SAP S/4HANA offers many innovative functions that revolutionize the system landscape from the ground up.
