SAP’s S4/HANA ERP solution has moved from batch transaction processing to real-time processing using the incredibly powerful HANA in-memory database. The shift to real-time processing allows for enterprise-wide consistency, instant insight and the ability to use SAP Business Planning and Consolidation to perform predictions, simulations and what-if scenario planning.
The opportunity to have real-time data provides the ability to take action quickly to changing market trends, provide current projections of cash flow, shorten planning cycle times and decrease time to report leading to a quicker financial close.
SAP S4/HANA is offered as a subscription which can be deployed as a Cloud model or as an on-premises solution. Native integration with SAP BPC, decreases implementation timeline and reduces total cost of ownership (TCO).
