Building on the foundation of an organization’s enterprise solution, our approach uses disruptive technology, like in-memory, and digital accelerators, such as social, mobile, analytics and cloud computing, to shift to New IT—creating faster, smarter, more agile and better connected enterprises.
SAP S/4HANA provides a platform well suited to the demands of the high velocity enterprise in an always-on, digitally-connected and Big Data-driven world.
Accenture and SAP are collaborating at an unprecedented level to accelerate development of SAP S/4HANA as well as industry and line-of-business solutions, with a view to simplifying and fast-tracking customers journeys to digital businesses. This is the first time that SAP has joined forces with an alliance partner to accelerate development of its core product, as well as build new industry cloud solutions, providing Accenture with unique input, insight and development opportunities with SAP S/4HANA.
Our high velocity enterprise approach and deep industry expertise provide a framework for companies ready to embark on digital transformation. SAP S/4HANA provides the platform.
Using SAP S/4HANA, we help organizations to adopt new ways to architect, implement, deliver, deploy and manage their SAP solution. The potential of SAP S/4HANA can be unlocked in a number of ways:
Unlike the traditional monolithic approach, SAP S/4HANA enables best-of-breed architectures and combination of solution components in different ways.
All SAP S/4HANA components can be deployed either on premise or in the cloud.
Hybrid cloud enables a different integration approach, with better, deeper API layers.
Full integration with SAP Leonardo and SAP Cloud Platform, allowing applications to be built faster and cheaper.
More ways to leverage data from business transactions and client interactions.
More options for architecting and developing integrated solutions.
WHO SHOULD ADOPT?
Organizations with professional services, finance or logistics at their cores can benefit from SAP S/4HANA. Organizations wanting to advance beyond the real-time reporting provided by SAP HANA Live and looking to become faster, smarter, more agile and connected can also benefit.
WHEN TO ADOPT?
The SAP S/4HANA innovations are being ramped up module-by-module. This allows flexibility in how and when organizations adopt.
To stay on the leading edge of new technology and reap immediate business benefits, now is the time to plan a digital roadmap incorporating future SAP S/4HANA innovations and start a technical re-platforming.
Organizations that prefer to wait before adopting new technologies can also start moving now and assess the maturity of each SAP S/4HANA innovation before adoption.
Early adopters are developing and enabling new capabilities as well as laying the foundation for business transformation as new innovations become available. The longer an organization waits to begin the journey, the more they miss out on capabilities exclusive to SAP S/4HANA and the harder it will be to catch up.
