Digital Supply Chain with SAP S/4HANA

June 28, 2018

 Organizations in every industry and region recognize the need for a digital core to meet today’s – and tomorrow’s – business needs. When insight, flexibility, and responsiveness are critical to success, companies cannot rely on yesterday’s technology. The latest release of SAP S/4HANA delivers new intelligence and  innovations to help companies run live in an ever-more-dynamic and fast-paced digital world. SAP S/4HANA 1709 integrates new intelligent applications that bring SAP Leonardo capabilities for machine learning and predictive computing directly into the digital core.

 

Digitization of the economy is continuing to accelerate the pace of innovation, shortening the product lifecycle and increasing the demand volatility. At the same time supply chains are becoming global and increasingly complex. To be in a position to createand capture opportunities, companies must develop an environment in which they can manage information and processes simultaneously across the extended supply chain. This evolution of supply chains is more connected, intelligent, responsive, and predictive.Itenables companies to drive customer-centric processes and deliver personalized products uniquely built and delivered for the “segment ofone.” These demanding customers have to be serviced across a business network of global partners that are increasingly challenged by resource scarcity. This transformation will continue to impact the business processes and systems that are required to remaincompetitive. It will change how we design, plan, make, ship, and operate our products and assets.

 

SAP S/4HANA  Supply Chain, cloud applications such as SAP Ariba solutions and SAP Integrated Business Planning, and SAP Leonardo support a digital supply chain strategy with a digital value network that acts as an enabler for business transformation. Thedigital value network starts with a digital core that interconnects all aspects of the value network in real time to drive business outcomes. The digital core not only connects every aspect of internal operations but also enables real-time workforce engagement, supplier collaboration, outcome-based omnichannel consumer experience, and other market dynamics with Internet of Things (IoT) and Big Data scenarios
