What is really new in SAP S/4HANA compared to SAP Business Suite powered by SAP HANA?

September 21, 2016

With SAP Business Suite powered by SAP HANA, SAP was the only software vendor in the market at that time to allow SAP Business Suite customers to bring together transactions and analysis into a single in-memory platform. This innovation has been extremely successful in the market as 2,000+ customers (existing and new) acquired SAP Business Suite powered by SAP HANA – in less than two years – to run their business in real time, making it one of the fastest-growing product in SAP’s history.

 

With SAP Business Suite powered by SAP HANA, SAP's product approach has been to port the applications on the SAP HANA platform and optimize the code to allow customers the ability to gain significant performance in their mission-critical business processes and reporting activities, and by that, in turn, also improve performance on relational databases. SAP HANA represented a new database alternative for existing customers, with a simple database migration required to drive the entire business in real time.

 

SAP S/4HANA is a separate product. With SAP S/4HANA, SAP is building on the success of the SAP Business Suite powered by SAP HANA with a completely new and reimagined suite:

  • SAP S/4HANA is running on SAP HANA for massive simplifications (simplified data model: no indexes, no aggregates, no redundancies) and innovations (for example, open in-memory platform for advanced applications predicting, recommending, and simulating)

  • SAP S/4HANA is natively designed with SAP Fiori UX, offering an integrated user experience with modern usability and instant insight on any device (role-based, three steps max to get the job done, mobile-first, consistent experience across lines of business)

  • SAP S/4HANA is natively connected to the Internet of Things and business networks for real-time collaboration (planned: machine-to-machine, Ariba Network, Concur) in the networked economy

  • SAP S/4HANA is natively engineered for providing choice of deployment (on premise, cloud and hybrid)

  • SAP S/4HANA is natively born for easy adoption (guided, configuration, and easy onboarding, from the discovery of the solution through cloud trials to deployment with preconfigured best practices)
