SAP HANA Overview

 

Overview

The decision to embark on a SAP HANA® or SAP® S/4HANA journey is very important and may not feature in your short term strategy or budget. HCL encourages companies not to delay engaging with a trusted partner like HCL to start exploring the cost and benefits associated with an investment in SAP S/4HANA or SAP HANA to gain an understanding of when it would be optimal to embark on the journey.

The SAP HANA platform revolutionizes ERP and Analytic solutions, by allowing massive quantities of data to be leveraged for business processes and reporting in real time. SAP HANA provides SAP customers with the power and agility to support a digital (r)evolution. You can address today’s demand for real-time business insights by creating business applications that previously were neither feasible nor cost-effective.

With the considerable benefits the SAP Business Suite on HANA and SAP S/4HANA offer, the question is not whether you should move to them but rather a matter of how quickly. As a result, our advice is to start exploring the cost and benefits to decide when and how to embark on the journey now. And our SAP experts at HCL are here to help you.
