A sneak peek at SAP’s S/4 HANA

The Transform Purdue project continues to make progress across the board. The technology work stream, in support of the overall project, has been hard at work on the migration of our current SAP system to the SAP Business Suite 4 SAP HANA, otherwise referred to as S/4 HANA.

As a result of the upgrade, the functionality and the processes in regards to analytics for payables, running general ledger reports and more will have a whole new look and feel.

The suite is easier to use and administer while also providing enhanced functionality. The goal is to dramatically simplify business processes by ensuring staff at all levels have access to the most current versions of information. The mobile-friendly aspect of S/4 HANA makes it more efficient. Once implemented, data will be accessible from any location with Internet access via laptops, tablets or mobile phones.

A quick demonstration of the S/4 HANA Finance Capabilities was shown at the Boiler Insight Hot Topics meeting recently. The demo shows first hand some of the improvements employees will utilize as a result of S/4 HANA implementation.

Any questions about S/4 HANA or the Transform Purdue project in general can be directed to bpr@purdue.edu.
