What is SAP S/4HANA?
SAP S/4HANA is a complete, intelligent ERP system with embedded AI and machine learning. It is SAP's ERP for large enterprises. It is the successor of SAP R/3 and SAP ERP and is optimized for SAP's in-memory database SAP HANA and inherits all the capabilities of this powerful in-memory data management and application platform.
SAP S/4HANA is an entirely new generation of SAP Business Suite that is characterized by simplifications, massively increased efficiency, and compelling features such as planning and simulation options in many conventional ERP transactions.
SAP S/4HANA can be deployed on premise, in the cloud, or a combination of both, to provide flexible consumption options to customers.
