Review: SAP S/4Hana Cloud: Use Cases, Functionality and Extensibility

Cloud has really taken off over the past five years. Companies once exclusively utilized on-premise software and business platforms to meet its needs. Advances in technology have now allowed software as a service and platform as a service options to become an economical and lucrative alternative.

For SAP, the future has a cloud-first strategy, and SAP Press recently released an introduction to the SAP S/4Hana Cloud solution.

What will you learn?

SAP S/4Hana Cloud: Use Cases, Functionality, and Extensibility was released just over a month ago at SAP TechEd Las Vegas, and comes at the perfect time for all cloud curious business stakeholders. The book takes a long look at why businesses would want to use the Hana Cloud—whether a small business or MNE. Get a better understanding of what costs are incurred when implementing a cloud system. And learn just how much maintenance is required for the platform.

Some might say that cloud provides a disadvantage when compared to current, LO-VC options—it can mean cost savings and efficiency increases though. And that’s the biggest benefit of this book: the clear case as to why cloud is the way to go for a business.

Beyond that, the book dives into Hana Cloud’s core processes of finance, inventory, production, sales, and more. Take a look at procure-to-pay, plan-to-product, order-to-cash, project services, embedded analytics, and more. See what comes with Hana Cloud and what you can do to customize the system to ensure it’s tailored to your specific business needs—whether in-app or side-by-side extensions built on SAP Cloud Platform.

Other highlights include:

  • Customer use cases
  • Implementation with SAP Activate
  • Pricing
  • Functionality
  • Localization
  • Reporting and analytics
  • Extensibility
  • Product roadmap

Who is this book for?

Anyone looking at Hana Cloud will find value in this book. If you’re still trying to identify the best ERP solution, are looking to re-platform an existing one, or are interested in lowering ERP TCO—this book will be indispensable.

This forward-looking book provides insight into cloud-specific update characteristics such as quarterly innovations. Authors Michael Jolton and Yosh Eisbart (NIMBL) brought their Hana Cloud expertise to the table in this publication, and the book’s 334 pages are the better for it—learn about implementing the solution from those who have actually done it before.
