SAP S/4HANA Cloud is the ERP of the future

Across industries and around the world, the cloud is upending the way modern companies conduct business. Forward-looking organizations see the cloud future as an opportunity—and few opportunities of the digital revolution match that of S/4HANA Cloud when it comes to crucial ERP considerations, such as total cost of ownership, agility and speed.

Moving to the cloud brings enormous advantages when it comes to efficiency, scalability and simplicity. It is important to recognize, though, that the transition requires commitment and the mindset to adapt change. Companies will need to be comfortable with a certain amount of overhaul when it comes to some business processes and optimization. The investment in the migration, however, will reap long-lasting rewards that will leave businesses poised to capitalize on the vast opportunities of the digital era.

How do you know if the SAP S/4HANA Cloud is right for you?

There are three core factors to consider when evaluating whether a migration to the SAP S/4HANA Cloud is the right choice for your organization. Companies that match the following criteria are ideal candidates to maximally benefit from public cloud adoption:

  1. Company structure and culture:
    • Your goal is to reduce total cost of ownership
    • Your business structure consists of several subsidiaries across functions
    • You have a need to integrate across SaaS systems
  2. Industry:
    • You’re in an industry that would benefit from standardization
    • Your industry is not highly regulated
    • Your industry does not require highly complex business practices
  3. Able to "Fit to Standard":
    • Your business processes can be mapped to leading standards
