Get your business processes ready for digital transformation with SAP S/4HANA Cloud and ORBIS
Design your business models with the latest innovations and maximum flexibility
Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems are becoming more and more important due to growing competitive momentum and increasing customer demands. With that in mind, modern ERP systems must be able to handle development and agile realignment at any time. In this scenario, Cloud ERP solutions can provide full flexibility while saving IT resources. The SAP Cloud ERP solution SAP S/4HANA Cloud is based on the SAP HANA in-memory database and the latest generation of ERP solutions from SAP. Thus, it can process large volumes of data faster. As a real time ERP suite, S/4HANA offers the greatest possible benefit when it comes to the optimization of business processes. The most important advantage of ERP is that it can help you in using the digital transformation as a multiplier and to futureproof your company processes – all in real time!
When migrating to the latest ERP system from SAP you have two different options to choose from: Cloud ERP or on-premises ERP. In this context, SAP S/4HANA Cloud is the software-as-a-service (SaaS) version and therefore a cloud-based ERP solution. This software is updated quarterly by SAP SE and is flexibly scalable. It’s important that you as a company opt for a system that will support your business models in the long term and help your company to stay ahead of the competition.
SAP S/4HANA Cloud: the key to futureproof processes
Do you want to make your company agile enough to respond to market and customer requirements plus actively create new business models? Then you need an ERP solution that is flexible, scalable, always up to date and that can be used globally. In short: You need SAP S/4HANA Cloud!
This ERP system does exactly that: It’s a solution that’s always one step ahead. Regular updates ensure that you always have access to the most up-to-date features and advantages for your processes. The combination of a high degree of standardization and the latest innovation thanks to cyclical updates, gives your company the flexibility to adapt its business processes to customer requirements and stay one step ahead of the competition.
In comparison to the on-premises version, using SAP S/4HANA Cloud as a SaaS solution, means that in future you won’t have to worry about infrastructure like operating systems, in-house servers, memory, or networks – that’s because you outsource your technology to the public cloud and SAP assumes the operation of this. This offers another advantage for you as a customer: it relieves the pressure on your IT infrastructure and cuts down on costs in your in-house IT departments. Does your company want to grow and need to respond flexibly to change? The Cloud ERP system is quickly scalable, with services like memory or computing power easily adaptable.
The subscription model helps you to reduce your total costs of ownership (TCO). There are no high initial investments, as there is no requirement for license costs or operating expenses. According to the pay-per-use principle you only pay for the scope you actually need and use. As a SAP customer you also benefit from latest standards in IT security.
Advantages of S/4HANA Cloud at a glance:
- Faster return on investment (ROI) and value creation thanks to rapid adjustment of the IT landscape to your company’s growth
- More business flexibility than with on-premises systems thanks to new releases every quarter and dynamic adjustment options
- Lower total costs of ownership (TCO) thanks to a straightforward and cost-effective implementation, configuration, and maintenance of the cloud solution
