There has been a great deal of chatter and hype in the industry on the topic of S/4HANA. There are three reasons why I am excited about S/4HANA. For me, it comes down to simplicity, agility and non-disruptive migration. The trouble is these really sound like overused clichés.
To be honest, at first I was aggravated when SAP used the word “simple”. Over the past few decades SAP has been anything but simple. My entire business has been focussed on trying to simplify SAP in a way that it delivers real benefit to our customers. In the process, we have engaged in many heated debates to deliver simplicity. To be fair, handling 282,000 companies and 25 industries is bound to lead to some complexity.
