Review: Logistics With S/4 Hana: An Introduction

SAP S/4 Hana continues to evolve with each new release. Customers who have already migrated to SAP’s latest ERP platform are discovering new functionalities all the time, and customers who haven’t yet made the move are likely hearing about the new tools from multiple fronts. Logistics in particular has seen a lot of development, which makes SAP Press’ new guide on this topic a must-read.

What will you learn?

Much has changed since we last reviewed SAP Press’ Logistics with SAP S/4 Hana: An Introduction in 2017, and the publisher recently released an updated and expanded version of the book. With nearly 200 pages of additional content, the book is up to date for the 1809 release.

What does this mean for you? The book continues to take a look at what SAP S/4 Hana provides for each supply chain line of business, including sales order management, manufacturing, inventory management, and more. It also adds new chapters outlining key functionality for important industries and considers how virtual reality and natural language processing can be used to your advantage.

Once it’s walked through available functionality, the book discusses how to create an implementation roadmap that reflects your organization’s requirements and priorities. See how to prepare your system by evaluating technical and functional conversion steps, and soon you’ll be operating in the future.


Other highlights include:

  • Warehouse management
  • Production planning
  • Centralized procurement
  • Demand-driven MRP (DDMRP)
  • Quality management

Who is this book for?

This book is meant for many audiences – chief among them those who are looking into SAP S/4 Hana for their company’s logistics needs. IT executives, managers, consultants, super users, and subject matter experts wanting a single source of information on SAP’s future for logistics will get answers from five thought leaders and a team of expert contributors.

All this to say: Whether you’re interested in planning and scheduling, transportation or inventory management, S&P, or plant maintenance – and that’s just a few of the areas the book covers – you’ll find helpful information on the benefits of running logistics with SAP S/4 Hana.
