As the increased pace of digitalization accelerates competition, enterprises are looking for technologies that can successfully transform their businesses and integrate them with the digital economy. To increase profitability and drive growth, enterprises need flexible IT systems that can help them offer seamless, end-to-end customer experiences.

Today, customers are seeking hyper-personalized products. This calls for a change in business models and intelligent ERP systems so that enterprises can adapt and scale with flexibility. An intelligent ERP system with built-in AI/ML and advanced analytics provides the necessary tools for enterprises to serve customers better.
SAP S/4HANA is a market leader in the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) segment. SAP introduced SAP HANA in 2012 to support enterprises to perform better in a digital world. Being an in-memory database, HANA could handle data processing much faster than the existing systems. As a result, it processes data faster, provides real-time reporting and supports innovations using IoT and machine learning.
In the last 10 years, HANA has grown into a major digital platform with various key components, such as SAP Fiori, S/4HANA and other SAP products.
Considered a successor to SAP ECC SAP S/4HANA offers support for core ERP business processes. Currently, enterprises are able to enjoy the benefits of HANA technology as SAP Business Suite can run on HANA. However, SAP will end its support for legacy products in 2027. After a transitionary period of three years i.e., by 2030, customers who are not on S/4HANA will have to shell out a lot more to maintain their legacy systems as SAP will shift to a customer-specific maintenance model.
