SAP S/4HANA

S/4HANA is pretty well suited to very simple and standard business practices. The beauty of the product is in providing consistent, replicable outcomes from similar processes and data input.The capture and analysis of the data input provides good insights to the business but there is still some lack of functionality and process clarification due to the early development phase.From an integration perspective, due to the underlying nature of a public cloud solution, the process for developing automated and complex integrations can be complex, frustrating and, in some cases fraught with danger. Complex testing is required to ensure the API's work in perfect synch with one another to produce the desired outcome

  • The upgrade path from SAP ERP EHP8 is well documented and easy to follow.
  • Fiori provides a much smoother experience than jumping in/out of transactions.
  • The templated applications which are pre-built, offer very useful functionalities.
  • There is a "Best Practice" package with documents, processes, transactions and the like that you can download using Solution Manager 7.2 into your landscape. Then you can re-engineer this later to add value to your clients' lives.

Cons

ABB Ability Solution Suite

  • May be for smaller PLCs this can't be implemented.

  • Printing from S/4 HANA could be designed in more user friendly way. Sometimes it's hard for beginners to start using SAP as is.
  • S/4 HANA new GUI could have some more colors and different icons. So design has very big room for improvement.
  • More S/4 HANA web courses.

One of the best solutions in the market with a user-friendly system. This is very useful when the ABB system (Like we had 800xA) is there, new or existing; all the ABB systems can be integrated using this rather than going to a 3rd party vendor, which may have interface problems.

It is easy to migrate between different screens within the S/4 system, which makes it easier to manage dependencies, tasks and resolve errors. Also the reporting in S/4 Hana is more reconcilable than any other software. The ease to check the accounts receivable and payable for orders has helped me a lot.

Good support in terms of quality and promptness. When we had problems with some of the commands not getting executed, their online support also provided a good solution to solve the problem. Even mission-critical task we were able to solve during this Pandemic time. The suggestion is to go for the online support 1st in the future, followed by a visit.

The support system of SAP is very good. Whenever we are logging any request, a quick support we are getting. Especially the support portal is very user friendly and easy to use. As of now I have not received any kind of complaint or negative feedback from my team regarding the support they are getting from SAP support team.
