What is SAP S/4HANA, and why is it worth switching to the system?

A simple, future-focused and high-performance system, SAP S/4HANA is the fourth and latest generation of SAP Enterprise Resource Planning solutions. The ERP system does nothing less than increase your company’s competitiveness. In short, it offers business intelligence due to smart, efficient business processes.

As an in-memory platform and real-time ERP suite, SAP S/4HANA scores top marks with faster data processing and analysis, not to mention simplified data modeling. The data model is far leaner than the one used in the previous versions, resulting in higher performance and better scalability.

In addition, the SAP solution offers a completely redesigned user interface (SAP Fiori) that is easier and more user-friendly to operate. It also offers many new features on mobile devices.

Added value due to Embedded Analytics

SAP Fiori used in combination with Embedded Analytics provides added value for your company. Embedded Analytics enables companies to integrate data analysis and reporting directly into their business processes, without any need to rely on separate analysis tools or reporting systems.

This is known as insight to action. It allows problems to be identified early on and rectified immediately. The aim of SAP S/4HANA Embedded Analytics is to provide real-time information and insights to improve decision-making and enhance the efficiency of business processes. Users – even ones without extensive technical knowledge – can create reports and dashboards using self-service analysis tools. SAP also provides predefined analysis models, reports and key figures for various business areas, facilitating implementation and use.

We find the right path for your digital transformation.

Advantages of SAP S/4HANA Cloud for companies

Whether it’s used for machine learning, asset management, in-memory and cloud technology or predictive analytics, the ERP software from SAP HANA has the latest innovations to meet your company’s business intelligence needs. The specific advantages of the system at a glance are as follows:

Performance due to SAP S/4HANA

This allows you to speed up your financial processes, for example, and create meaningful reports more quickly. The benefits include a higher return on investment (ROI) and a low total cost of ownership.

Efficiency due to SAP S/4HANA


The SAP HANA solution simplifies business processes and automates routine tasks. Employees can concentrate on important tasks and enhance efficiency within the company.

User-friendliness in SAP S/4HANA


In terms of user experience, the ERP solution is far more convenient than its predecessors. Thanks to the new SAP Fiori design concept, you as a user benefit from an intuitive and customizable user interface that gives you an overview of all company data and transactions at all times. Even when you’re on the move and using a mobile device.

Flexibility thanks to SAP S/4HANA


SAP S/4HANA is available both as an on-premise solution and as a cloud solution (in the Private and Public Cloud variants).

On-premise means that the software is installed directly on the company’s servers and operated independently. The on-premise version includes maintenance and updates too.

There is no need for this with the cloud solution. Here, SAP’s cloud ERP system is provided on servers in the cloud, and you can access it from absolutely anywhere. So you don’t have to worry about infrastructure and maintenance at all. And don’t have to compromise on the features.

The SAP Business Technology Platform (BTP) – an innovation platform optimized for SAP applications in the cloud – combines features for application development, cloud ERP extensions, data management and analysis, integration, automation and AI in a central environment.
