Enterprise resource planning systems have become a cornerstone of modern business, integrating and optimizing processes across all departments and streamlining critical information flows. However, is it really necessary to keep your ERP system on site? Is the world ready for cloud-based ERP – or rather, is it ready for the world? SAP’s S/4HANA Cloud offers every advantage of traditional on-prem solutions, and more.

The potential of the cloud is huge – underlined by the fact that SAP has embraced a ‘cloud-first’ strategy when it comes to the development of their products. Moving forward, SAP will optimize the cloud-based aspects of its business IT solutions and begin phasing out less advanced interfaces, applications and platforms. As part of its cloud-first strategy, S/4HANA Cloud was developed as a scalable, future-proof option for businesses transitioning away from on-prem ERPs in search of a robust, trusted solution.

The S/4HANA Cloud advantage

SAP’s S/4HANA Cloud ERP comes with all the benefits of an on-prem ERP system:

  • Enables data-driven business decision-making
  • Integrates easily with other SAP business IT solutions
  • Boosts enterprise agility, efficiency and productivity
  • Opens up new automation opportunities

But in addition to making businesses more adaptable, efficient and digitally driven, S/4HANA Cloud ERP offers the scalable computing power needed to incorporate the latest technologies into your processes. From predictive analytics and the Internet of Things to machine learning, your business can easily unlock future-proof new ways of doing business. Cloud implementations are also rolled out quickly and smoothly and can be more easily adapted to fit your needs than on-prem ERP solutions.

However, S/4 HANA Cloud provides even more value-added functionalities that may tip the balance toward cloud in your organization. For example, SAP has developed business processes for a wide range of different industries and offers a targeted two-tier hybrid ERP model for large companies with subsidiaries in multiple locations. “We’ve built into our system processes specialized for retail, banking, chemicals, you name it,” explains Alain Georgy, managing director of SAP Belux. “That’s unique in our industry.”
