Top 7 Benefits of Hosting SAP S/4 HANA on HANA Community Cloud

SAP brought a dramatic change in how organizations worked back before 1970. The company was initiated by automating a single business process and, to date, is the best one integrating all the organizational applications to maintain transparency, flexibility, and cost reduction. In addition, SAP consolidated the process-driven business platform into a single intelligent, digital business suite. SAP is one of the best companies established as a global standard for Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP).

As the growth graph of cloud computing started to rise at an incredible rate, SAP decided to have its presence in the Cloud. The idea of cloud computing prompted a paradigm shift in how software and cloud service companies like ESDS offered their solutions to clients in the late 2000s and early 2010s. Upgrades were provided to users more quickly since applications were distributed wirelessly over the Cloud. Companies could now send release updates more regularly, resulting in higher value for the consumer instead of rolling out one major software application release yearly. 

After the introduction of SAP HANA and SAP S/4HANA in the early 2010s, SAP’s ERP strategy changed significantly. The existing SAP HANA Cloud Platform was renamed to SAP Cloud Platform in 2017, and SAP S/4HANA Cloud was introduced in 2016. In addition, this trademark was formally phased out in 2021 to make room for the SAP Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP). Since then, SAP has urged clients to switch from on-premises environments to the Cloud to benefit from a few upgrades.

SAP HANA is a multi-model database that stores data in its memory. SAP HANA offers faster data-processing capabilities with advanced real-time analytics.

SAP S/4 HANA is an ERP business suite built on the SAP HANA in-memory database, enabling businesses to make transactions and analyze business data in real-time.
