- SAP® HANA
SAP® S/4HANA serves as the digital core for connecting enterprises with people, business networks, the Internet of things (IoT) and big data. It enables organizations to make business decisions informed by real-time insights, machine learning, IoT scenarios and predictive computing. SAP® S/4HANA is deployable both on-premises and in the cloud. With tight integration between headquarters and subsidiaries, SAP® S/4HANA lets companies run 2-tier ERP operations and also support multi-tier, extended enterprise environments
An SAP® S/4HANA on-premise deployment encompasses traditional in-house IT infrastructure models. This deployment model describes an instance of SAP® S/4HANA that is physically hosted on customer property. Customers can choose from a system conversion (brownfield) implementation, which takes an existing SAP® environment and transforms it into SAP® S/4HANA; a new (greenfield) implementation, which migrates existing business data into a brand-new SAP® S/4HANA system; or selective data transition, which uses shell conversion to reuse existing ERP processes in the new system.
An SAP® S/4HANA Cloud deployment provides SAP® S/4HANA functionality by placing a customer's instance of the solution on a partitioned cloud server alongside other customers. The functional scope is limited due to its standardized setup. A private cloud deployment provides SAP® S/4HANA functionality without the need for the customer to maintain the technical backend. It is great for companies running SAP® ERP who already have some cloud experience and infrastructure; with this, they're able to host the solution on their own cloud without having to share space with other tenants, as the standard SAP® S/4HANA Cloud deployment provides.
