Customers are used to software changes. They upgrade or engage in a migration to stay compliant and then they go back to doing business. It is the standard cycle, but it is not what to expect with SAP S/4HANA.
SAP S/4HANA is an opportunity to reshape how you do business. Unfortunately, many SAP clients do not look at it this way. They don’t see the value of the technology and how it will help them solve the challenge of securing a massive return on investment from their data.
Every company has data, but the best ones are organizing around that asset. For example, one global consumer-products company took a concierge approach in capturing large volumes of data and making sense of the chaos. That was only the first step; it also assessed how to make decisions from the data, ensuring the right people were getting access to make business decisions.
The data can be accessed by employees around the world and has already helped the company know its consumers better. Business users can now get answers to myriad questions that they couldn’t before. The system is housed on a standards- and rules-oriented platform, so if everyone in the company asks the same question, they all receive the same answer.
The best companies are taking a similar approach with SAP S/4HANA. It has the in-memory capabilities to deliver real-time information, but it is the innovation around it that makes the difference.
Companies are at different stages of this process. Some are playing defense and don’t know where to start. Some are already on the journey and have begun the process. And then there are companies on offense who are already organized around SAP S/4HANA.
Capgemini’s Renewable Insights is an opportunity at any stage of the SAP S/4HANA journey to get the best return on investment from data. Companies which haven’t started can deploy cloud technology platforms for data capture, analytics, machine learning, and artificial intelligence today, and it will mean less work when they do move to SAP S/4HANA.
For companies already on the journey, Renewable Insights can make sure you are on the right path and understand the opportunity that SAP S/4HANA brings. It is not just migrating to a new platform. It is about truly capitalizing on the assets your data brings, both in the Digital Core and around the edges.
And once companies have SAP S/4HANA, Renewable Insights can help determine the return on investment and how you can get more out of it.
Do not approach SAP S/4HANA as an upgrade or migration. That is a mistake. It is about the opportunity to reshape and redefine your business for the future. https://www.youtube.com/embed/M7cHgBlpFAs?feature=oembed&enablejsapi=1&origin=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.capgemini.com
