The Power Of Analytics With S/4HANA

You may have heard us talk before about the sheer power of S/4HANA, and the benefits your business might get from upgrading your SAP solution. But one thing we haven’t gone into too much detail around yet is the powerful set of analytical features embedded within it. If your business isn’t using data analytics in your business processes yet, this should be quite an eye opener for you. SAP analytics allow organisations to make more intelligent decisions based on real time data, leading to increased productivity, business focus and profitability, and S/4HANA is at the forefront of that power.

Real Time Business Insight

SAP S/4HANA enables you to gain insight into your data from anywhere in real time. It lets you dramatically accelerate planning, execution, prediction and simulation at the highest level of granularity, with the cumbersome data consolidation and other manual processes usually required. You can construct and test ‘what if’ scenarios, and use the data predictions to make better decisions and boost efficiency. SAP S/4HANA also makes it easier to connect to people, devices and business networks in real time, so you can unlock the potential of the networked economy and deliver new experiences to customers. You can use the multi-level insights to streamline your business processes, freeing you to focus on essential tasks and make business changes in real time thanks to its flexibility and agility. With SAP S/4HANA, the Internet of Things and Big Data become accessible to any business.

Reimagined User Experience

SAP S/4HANA is natively designed with the most modern, role based user experience; SAP Fiori. This solution is designed to deliver a personalised, highly responsive user experience for enterprise-wide engagement across all lines of business, and with S/4HANA, your analytics are directly integrated with the flawless Fiori experience. When you simplify the user experience in this way, you will see improved employee productivity, increased adoption of new working methods, easier training and fewer change requests, all of which leads to employees more focussed on strategic tasks instead of struggling with the technology.

Simplified IT

With the adoption of S/4HANA you can create new opportunities to dramatically simplify your IT, allowing you to innovate faster without roadblocks. It’s integrated approach to analytics allows you to significantly reduce your data footprint while working with large data sets by bringing all transactions and analytics together into one, seamlessly in-memory platform. At the bottom line, this means a reduction in hardware, operational and time costs, with no discrepancies between differing systems causing issues. And because of its agile approach, new reporting models can be created and run in minutes, not weeks.

Top 5 Benefits To Integrated Analytics

Of course, there are plenty of solutions out there that allow you to gather and analyse your business data in this way. So, what are the benefits of using an integrated analytics program over a third-party solution? Here are just a few;

  • Harmonised Processes and Data means that common practices across your business are integrated and leveraged within one key system, delivering unrivalled consistency between planned and actual data.

Create value for your business with SAP or S/4HANA

The launch of SAP Business Suite 4 SAP HANA (SAP S/4HANA) has meant that SAP’s customers must take a leap of faith. SAP, which emphasized the benefits of the new suite, has given customers insights into how the next generation of enterprise resource planning (ERP) system will meet their business demands. Using SAP S/4HANA, SAP S/4HANA Cloud: Next-Generation ERP organizations can reduce the complications of their SAP landscapes with the streamlined, centralized suite running on the in-memory SAP HANA platform. Yes, this may look good at face value, but how will organizations benefit from adopting this new ERP system?

The IT fraternity realizes the potential of S/4HANA as a driving force for a reduced total cost of ownership (TCO) relying on the savings from leaner databases and the simplifications, consolidation, and speed opportunities. But from a business point of view, the question is:

How can organizations get real value by implementing S/4HANA?

SAP Support team frequently discusses with its clients this ‘so what’ query. It is not only what SAP S/4HANA is about, but what the real value is from an organization’s viewpoint. Why should SAP Support team clients take the leap of faith?

SAP Support team has picked out key enablers to generate value from S/4HANA and SAP Suite on HANA. After an in-depth analysis of the technology and considering the feedback from clients,

Have we created a value-based program to offer an outcome-based journey to S/4HANA?

We help organizations move to S/4HANA and Suite on HANA to begin realizing the initial benefits made available by the simplification and the speed inherent in the new technology. The move will help the enablers to be unlocked in order to let organizations realize the high-value drivers using an agile and non-disruptive approach. SAP S/4HANA Cloud: Next-Generation ERP This approach permits organizations to take on these drivers in smaller projects with faster delivery. Organizations can then fund each project leveraging the value realized from past projects. This helps in restricting the impact on internal resources and reducing the initial investment.

SAP Support team has classified the enablers into key areas, which include the following:

  • Agility/Speed for quicker data access with agile tools. The agility of SAP S/4HANA lets organizations achieve more with data. For instance, a team dealing with finance could run real-time jobs in batches without it having to wait for the jobs to complete.SAP S/4HANA Cloud: Next-Generation ERP  The capability to run jobs in real time allows users to run them several times in case there is a need to refine the results.

 

  • Productivity is improved using the Fiori SAP UX powered by SAP HANA as the new UI. While Fiori isn’t new, the processing power and speed that HANA provides help unlock Fiori’s potential. This advantage is available across SAP S/4HANA and SAP S/4 HANA and offers KPIs in real time that provides users access to several transactions using a single app. SAP S/4HANA Cloud: Next-Generation ERP Transactions are processed with fewer clicks and screens to be filled out; they can also be customized and role-based in order to enhance further the user experience.
  • Operational monitoring of SAP Lumira and SAP HANA. This enables organizations to directly report from the native ERP database and avoid delays in data export that can raise questions about an organization’s data integrity. SAP Lumira and SAP HANA Live help organizations report in real time with enhanced visibility in order to make quicker decisions. Moreover, standard HANA predictive analytics tools allow for quicker and better decision-making support. Users can be permitted to create queries to extract data as necessary, which is generally limited in non-HANA databases.
  • Simplification is an advantage that can be more closely associated with SAP S/4HANA. This is particularly significant since it reduces issues with reconciliation and in its place, promotes one source of truth. FI- and CO-related transactions are saved as a single line item; this improves the dependability of the data across functions.
  • Cross-functional transparency, an advantage of SAP S/4HANA and SAP HANA, enables a consistent and dependable workflow. The capability to access information in various system areas and work cross-functionally enables further the real-time insights and analytics into the data across the organization.
  • Digitalization is the last enabler identified by the SAP Support team. The Fiori UX and SAP HANA offer the flexibility and power to build a solid foundation for creating and implementing a digital strategy. SAP Support team makes available end-to-end digital solutions that help drive value and innovation, improve productivity, and improve considerably an organization’s client and user experience.

Transformation and innovation are traditionally associated with painful, long, and, not to forget, costly programs.SAP Support team Agile Benefits Creation approach offers benefits in agile bursts, associated with a client’s funding and internal resources with minimum disruption.SAP S/4HANA Cloud: Next-Generation ERP  SAP Support team examines an organization’s high-volume and critical processes and enables the building of a business case which promotes value using these enablers.
