The Application 

SAP S/4HANA is SAP's 4th generation Business Suite. 

This version runs completely on the in-memory database platform SAP HANA. SAP S/4HANA is the successor to the successful SAP R/3 or SAP ECC. These on-premise systems are now replaced by an S/4HANA environment and available in an On-Premise, Cloud and Private Cloud. 

The difference between the different S/4HANA versions is the available functionality and the update cycles.


Cloud First Strategy for Updates!

SAP clearly has a Cloud First strategy. This implies that updates and new features are added to the Cloud ERP Suite versions every quarter. For the Private Cloud and On-Premise version, an update cycle of 1x per year applies. 

The Database

SAP HANA in-memory database

Through the deployment of SAP HANA as an in-memory database,  all data is stored in memory. Because the data model has been drastically reduced from the various functional angles, all data is now available, because everything is in memory. Waiting for a day, week or month report is now history. This database can be accessed both via SQL and MDX. Via MDX, simple multidimensional issues can be elaborated (OLAP-like) and linked to Excel Pivot Tables.

SAP Fiori - User Experience

The User Experience has been roll-based. This implies that specific roles of mobile devices and tablets are deployed in addition to the trusted desktops. SAP Fiori uses HTML5. This allows the Fiori apps to be easily deployed on all device.
