the Next-Generation ERP

Your Digital Transformation with EPI-USE.


There has been a lot of buzz around SAP S/4HANA. Let EPI-USE provide more information about SAP S/4HANA and what it can do for you. 

To address the “elephant” in the room, SAP is planning to end all support for older versions of their product by 2027. In the near future, the transformation to SAP S/4HANA will be out of necessity and companies should start to plan for the transition to ensure they allow themselves enough time to partner with the most compatible implementation partner. 

What is SAP HANA

SAP HANA is the in-memory database technology that runs the SAP landscape.  

HANA was designed in a unique way that it can track information and data and transactions without consuming as much database capacity as traditional databases. 

As a result, it has helped speed up the real-time performance and visibility that a lot of organizations are looking for in their ERP software.

What is SAP S/4HANA

  • SAP S/4HANA was designed to make ERP more modern, faster and easier to use, allows companies to perform transactions and analyze business data in real time, leverage lean architecture, incorporate a new user experience built on SAP Fiori UX, and can be integrated with advanced technologies.

  • SAP S/4HANA enables customers to undergo digital transformation, where customers can modify their existing business processes and models or create new ones to be aligned with SAP S/4HANA best practices and industry standards.

  4. Business Process Intelligence – This allows a business to be agile, flexible, and take quick business decisions. You can also automate aspects of your business. SAP’s acquisition of Signavio and the adoption of their process have made this part easier.  Tailored recommendations for SAP S/4HANA functionality for six lines of business – identify where to use S/4HANA intelligent capabilities (advanced analytics, AI, machine learning, IoT and robotic process automation (RPA) (Discovery Report, Tailored Recommendations)

  5. Business Network Starter Pack – Businesses constantly coordinate with multiple stakeholders like suppliers, distributors, vendors, etc. RISE with SAP NSP ties up with S/4HANA to help optimize processes and deliver efficient businesses.
