SAP S/4HANA Cloud, Public Edition explained ERP Flavors

Start, explore and expand with the required functionality

The SAP S/4HANA Cloud, Public Edition can be configured rapidly with a base configuration in order to start using the system. 

It's our experience that the sooner you start using the solution, the better you understand the concepts and capabilities to expand to the needed functionality. The fact that you can configure additional functionality without complex projects  makes SAP S/4HANA Cloud the ideal solution to define  your own pace to extend the needed functionality.  During our implementation projects, we define several so called "Sprints" with fit-to-standard workshops to configure, test and accept a particular scope. This step-by-step approach helps employee to understand the new solution.

In general, there are three  predefined packages or ERP Flavors to support your business:

  1. Administrative ERP  - Finance Led ERP
  2. Operational ERP, including two variants
    • Product Centric for production business
    • Service Centric for the service/projects/subscription business

These variants are based on a pre-selection of scope items. All variants can be combined/mixed depending on your needs.
