SAP S/4HANA is based on the in-memory database SAP HANA. Transactions, predictions, recommendations as well as simulations can thus be completed in real time.
The SAP ERP Business Suite has developed into one of the most established and comprehensive ERP systems over the years. SAP built its applications from the ground up so that customers get a consistent and uniform system – with maximum scalability and a wide range of functions.
SAP Business Suite 4 SAP HANA, or SAP S/4HANA for short, is the next generation of the SAP ERP application suite. It is a new product, but at its core it corresponds to the functional scope of the classic SAP ERP (35 languages, 61 country versions and 23 industry solutions).
SAP S/4HANA essentially aims to radically simplify the data model and the user experience in order to help companies simplify their business processes.
“Not only do we greatly accelerate the system, but we also simplify it extensively. This reduces operating costs and increases flexibility.”

SAP S/4HANA Asset Management gives you a real-time insight into the performance of systems so that you can make the necessary decisions in a timely fashion. Central data management makes it possible to jointly evaluate data from information and operating technologies. The available predictive analytics capabilities allow for a proactive approach to machine maintenance. In this way, you can effectively plan for spare parts, technical resources and personnel if necessary.

Since SAP itself sees the cloud solution of SAP SuccessFactors as the long-term future in HR, we are happy to advise you on which solution is most suitable for you.
SAP S/4HANA Manufacturing
SAP S/4HANA Manufacturing forms the key element for production control, production flow, quality management and maintenance. Based on order-related bill of materials and routing for individual production and intelligent planning scenarios, SAP S/4HANA Manufacturing ensures faster responses to changes in demands, lower manufacturing costs, fewer stock shortfalls and lower inventories. By networking with suppliers and partners, you manage subcontracting processes and work toward further optimization based on the same data.
SAP S/4HANA Sales
Processing occurs here based on the customer’s wishes, from request to quotation creation, cost calculation, pricing to invoicing. Based on the high level of integration in other logistics modules, a wealth of process-supporting information is available in real time. In this way, for example, you can carry out very detailed product calculations or confirm simulated delivery dates. Jumps to other SAP modules provide information about inventory, the customer base in CRM or price agreements.
SAP S/4HANA Sourcing and Procurement
Optimize your sourcing and procurement processes. All information about suppliers, previous orders and conditions that result directly from customer orders or the purchase or raw material requirements from production are stored in one place. By classifying vendors, you ensure that suitable suppliers and service providers are suggested. The system automatically identifies the vendor who best covers the pricing and delivery requirements for the materials and services. It is ensured for all sourcing processes that you follow sourcing agreements and pricing agreements while using your internal approval and release procedure.
SAP S/4HANA Supply Chain
You optimize the entire logistics chain with SAP S/4HANA Supply Chain. Starting with optimized inventory triggered by materials requirements planning to the company-wide production planning to internal or external warehouse processes and communication with logistics service providers.
This optimization is due to the fact that data management is centrally accessible, and therefore is accessible to every single module. The new technologies of S/4HANA have reduced access times to this data down to a minimum. This means that queries and reports are possible in real time, which, for example, makes for shorter throughput times in production or reduces start-up and production waste.
