SAP S/4 HANA, coupled with SAP Ariba and SAP Field glass solutions, enable companies to manage spend across every major category while reducing direct costs and administrative burden and shortening overall cycle time.

S/4 HANA is intended to be easier to use and administer while helping to solve more complex problems and handle vastly larger amounts of data than its predecessors. S/4 HANA is available in on-premises, cloud and hybrid deployment models. S/4 HANA is an opportunity for businesses to reinvent business models and generate new revenues by taking advantage of the Internet of Things (IoT) and big data by connecting people, devices and business networks.

The main key component of S/4 HANA is SAP Simple Finance, which aims to streamline financial processes and enable real-time analysis of financial data. Simple Finance helps companies align their financial and non-financial data into what SAP refers to as a “single source of truth.” Some Business Suite users are deploying Simple Finance as the first step in the road to S/4 HANA.
