SES 105: How to Leverage SAP S/4HANA Cloud for your Online Business/Venture?

Did you know that with the digital transformation reinventing the way in which business is done and how it’s done, the global economy is constantly shifting and evolving. Almost all businesses could expect to sustain in the market for life. But, in today’s changing world (that too a fast-changing one), many businesses are chased by disruption every now and then.


The life expectancy of companies on the Fortune 500 index (from 75 years to 15 years) and the fact that these four start-ups – Facebook, Uber, Airbnb, and, account for 60% of the market cap of the German stock index.

Most fast-track innovators who are hungry for success, usually disrupt the established markets. Not necessarily fueled with better products but better customer service strategies do smart companies leapfrog industry borders, and sell additional products and services into existing markets and leave established market leaders perplexed behind. Modern ERP needs to support this fast shift without losing its capability to run smooth!

These days, businesses need a high degree of agility to cope with ever-changing business environments. If they play it right and exploit new market trends, they can pitchfork themselves way ahead of the competition and manage to sustain strong in the market for the years to come.

Business these days do need innovation for their customers. That’s why SAP S/4HANA Cloud, as the intelligent ERP has cloud that adds another dimension. Thus, leveraging SaaS ERP gives you the agility to foster rapid innovation cycles. Did you know that as per the release, almost all major businesses in every niche can benefit from adding cutting-edge technologies, such as machine learning, predictive analytics, and IoT integration, instantly?

I believe, the adoption and implementation of SaaS for line of businesses, should be made necessary for all kinds of business, since the customers can then start to deploy the ERP in the cloud for the desired results. A highly volatile market with mergers and demergers are driven by the digital transformation which is in favor of highly flexible capital on deployment models.

SAP provides several deployment options starting with SAP S/4HANA on-premise, through SAP S/4HANA on Infrastructure as a Service, and HEC, including the private option, and the SAP S/4HANA Public Cloud. The offering for SAP S/4HANA gives every customer the ideal solution for their business needs, depending on the scope and time to market.

Points to keep in mind before Implementing SAP S/4HANA Cloud

  • Always have an identical foundation that is unique in the industry, since in SAP S/4HANA, innovations for all S/4HANA deployment options are delivered from one single code.
  • Make sure to opt for the Cloud, since SAP S/4HANA Cloud allows features like upgrades every quarter, quicker time to value, and easy consumption for the end user.

The Cloud Deployment in SAP S/4HANA, is specially for SAP Customers and Businesses that want –

  • A particular business scenario of lines of business in various industries combined with a fast innovation cycle.
  • And a Standardized Cloud Offering, which majorly covers the core business scenarios of an business.

There are a number of subsidiaries in any business or industry. So, giving these subsidiaries their own ERP system really tremendously increases the speed of innovation you can achieve there in that department or subsidiary. Respective ERP systems in each subsidiaries allow them to pursue different new business that you are not really dealing with from the main office.

The digital core of SAP S/4HANA Cloud provides you with the platform for significantly shortening the time-frame between triggering organizational change and adopting it.
