Intelligent automation, insight and prediction, next-generation processes: SAP S/4HANA 1909 brings many new and innovative capabilities to the market.
With the 1909 release of SAP S/4HANA, SAP continues to focus on delivering leading-edge value in three key areas: intelligent automation, insight and prediction, and next-generation best practices. And tremendous progress can be seen across all lines of business.
Here are some key highlights:
While the list of new capabilities in SAP S/4HANA 1909 is extensive, it is important and consider the big picture. In 2017, the number of SAP S/4HANA innovations was 966, in 2018 it was 2,389, and now, in 2019, it stands at 3,312: an increase of almost 3.5 times! User experience (UX) innovations have gone from 646 to 1,048, and to now 1,496 — up by more than double in three releases.
Why am I sharing these numbers? Because it shows that the robustness of SAP S/4HANA can help every SAP customer become an intelligent enterprise. If you are already one of our more than 11,500 SAP S/4HANA customers, the 1909 release will help strengthen your existing business.
If you are an SAP ERP customer, you may be looking to quantify the value you could get by moving to SAP S/4HANA.
The key is to understand how SAP S/4HANA, as a whole, provides value to you, in your unique situation.
How do you apply all of these SAP S/4HANA innovations to your business? SAP has just released a new version of the SAP Business Scenario Recommendations service. Free to all SAP customers on maintenance, this service looks at five lines of business — finance, sales, manufacturing, procurement, and supply chain — and evaluates the performance of your SAP ERP business processes against benchmarks in your industry.
It then shows how SAP S/4HANA can improve your company performance by looking at key performance indicators in your industry and showing how these could improve in your company by implementing SAP S/4HANA.
I encourage you to spend some time getting to know how SAP Business Scenario Recommendations can help you build a case for a move to SAP S/4HANA. Get more details here.
I want to conclude by highlighting twp SAP S/4HANA customer stories that are changing the way companies do business, for the better.
