SAP Business Suite 4 SAP HANA (S/4 HANA) is the most important innovation offered by the publisher since the release of SAP R/3 in 1992. This new management solution redefines the way software packages should support and sustain the growth of companies operating in the digital and connected economy.
The power of the in-memory technology used in SAP S/4 HANA allows you to leverage the potential of Big Data and the Internet of Things to redefine your business model. Simulate, plan, execute and analyze: all this is done in real time and from any terminal, connected with your partners and networks. The SAP S/4 HANA suite is also designed to provide a user experience (SAP FIORI) that combines modernity and ergonomics adapted to the role of each employee in your company.
SAP has combined its latest innovations (the SAP HANA platform and the SAP Fiori user experience) and its unique experience (more than 40 years of mastering complex business challenges) into a unique management suite that reinvents the company.
