How does SAP S/4HANA relate to SAP Business Warehouse or SAP BW/4HANA?


SAP Business Warehouse (SAP BW) powered by SAP HANA and SAP BW/4HANA complement SAP S/4HANA  embedded  analytics,  allowing  customers  to  address  all  use  cases  from  one  data  source,  resulting in a comprehensive reporting platform.

SAP BW is a strategic solution for enterprise data warehousing (EDW) and it has been recently expanded with a native SAP HANA EDW. SAP’s next-generation EDW, SAP BW/4HANA, is a new product specifically designed to run exclusively on the SAP HANA platform and to integrate with SAP S/4HANA in the same way as SAP BW powered by SAP HANA. The new innovations taking place with SAP BW/4HANA are compatible with existing SAP BW on SAP HANA environments and focus on Big Data with enhancements to data management (such as  multi-temperature  handling  or  a  variety  of  deployments  including  SAP  HANA  Enterprise  Cloud,  Amazon Web Services, and Microsoft Azure).

As SAP’s strategic platform for EDW, new functionality in SAP  BW/4HANA  will  further  enhance  the  integration  with  SAP  S/4HANA  (with,  for  example,  CDS extraction, aligned content objects, and models).

What SAP S/4HANA industry solutions are available?

S/4HANA industry solutions

Both SAP S/4HANA and SAP S/4HANA Cloud are open to customers of all industries.

Within SAP S/4HANA we have an “Industry-to-Core” initiative as industry value chains undergo significant reorganization. For example, we can foresee the consumer products brands becoming retailers, and retailers becoming consumer products brands. The classical industry definitions are becoming increasingly blurred. Our Industry-to-Core initiative is driven by a “principle of one” mindset, and releases portions of the former industry solutions as part of the core SAP S/4HANA solution.

As expected, the functional depth and support of specific industry scenarios is larger for the on-premise edition than for the cloud edition

What are the key benefits for a customer to move to SAP S/4HANA?


SAP’s vision and strategy is to help customers run live in the digital economy. To deliver on this mission, SAP is  redefining how enterprise software creates value.  The prevalence of digital technologies is forcing organizations to reimagine their business models, the way their business processes are designed, and the way their employees work in the digital economy. While this brings a plethora of challenges due to the disruptive nature of digital technologies, the digital economy also presents numerous opportunities for those who are aware and prepared to embrace digital transformation.

Business value perspective:
This means that SAP S/4HANA creates some unique opportunities to reinvent business models and drive new revenues and profits. First, enterprises can now connect to people, devices, and business networks to deliver new value to their customers on any channel becausethe Internet of Things and Big Data are accessible to any business. Second, enterprises can dramatically simplify their processes, drive them in real time, and change them as needed to gain new efficiencies –batch processing is no longer required. And finally, business users can now get any insight on any data from anywhere in real time for planning, execution, prediction, and simulation, so decisions may be made on the fly with the finest level of granularity for faster business impact.

IT  value  perspective
This  means  that  SAP  S/4HANA  creates  some unique  opportunities  to  simplify  the  landscape  and  help  reduce  total  cost  of  ownership  (TCO),  with  SAP  HANA  as  the  great  simplifier. First, enterprises can eliminate redundant data, reducing their data footprint while working with larger data sets in one system (for example, with industry or application function reintegrated, where it was  previously  standalone).  This  enables  them  to  reduce hardware  costs,  operational  costs,  and complexity, and to save time
