SAP HANA and SAP Business Suite 4 HANA (SAP S/4HANA) have the potential to dramatically change and improve all critical enterprise functions from logistics and customer service through to marketing and finance. It enables businesses to run in real time, providing the ability to transact, analyze and predict instantly and proactively in an increasingly unpredictable world.
Organizations are taking different routes to implementation and driving business value from SAP HANA. These range from the tactical addressing of a single business process through to a full-scale transformation with SAP S/4HANA.
Accenture’s approach is flexible. We are working with clients on several approaches that can run in parallel to meet specific business goals:
Industry cloud solutions bring together Accenture’s industry and functional knowledge with assets implemented on SAP HANA technology into an entire enterprise system with industry-specific capabilities and processes—delivered from one technology stack in the cloud. Packaged as a complete solution, i.e. hardware, software and services, these can be deployed on premise or sourced as a cloud-based solution.
Full-scale move to SAP S/4HANA. It involves a complete application and technology refresh and transformation of existing business processes. This provides the opportunity to consolidate and renovate existing SAP implementations offering the power of the platform broadly across the whole organization.
Analytics and acceleration on SAP HANA makes use of the SAP HANA architecture to accelerate the performance of one or more business processes.
