As I have only used it in one business I can't say too much how relevant it would be for other types of business, eg Retail or Manufacturing. It doesn't appear to be specifically set up for ecommerce.

We wholesale products and it works well for that kind of business model.

SAP S/4HANA

Well suited to pull and push the data to BW stuff for generating real time reports, also the interface with many applications is easy going with Finance, logistics, wareshouse management. Also the customers who are already on ECC6.0 with latest Enhancement of SP level from any DB are good to migrate/convert to S/4 HANA.
It is less appropriate because currently the resources are limited who understand S/4 HANA terminology deeply. HA kind of scenario is bit less informative to the infra team and support resources.

Pros

  • Generic Inquiries are a very easy way to create custom reports.
  • The automation schedules are useful, we use these for confirming of shipments, creating invoices and emailing them. Reduces workload.
  • Open for integration with other software. We find the ease of connection to MS PowerBI very useful.

  • The main thing I liked is it has mitigated all the duplicity of the tables, which ultimately helped to reduce the DB size of your system, in-memory is the key benefit of S/4 HANA usages.
  • It helped developers and operations set for easy going.
  • Scheduling the logistics process, generating various reports in a span of a seconds to few minutes to hours from the huge amount of time which was required in earlier in days.

Cons

  • The CRM module is very basic.
  • There is no supplier remittance function.
  • The API is basic, our ecommerce integration has had to be built nearly from scratch.

  • So far I have not yet discovered much of the area of improvement, but definitely I can see, that the procedure for implementation and configuration of different business process and technical integrations should be in easy and can be well documented.
  • At this moment less documentation is available, and resources who have real time S/4 HANA working experience are less in the market.
  • One machine for everything is the biggest challenge for an organisation to support and maintain.

It is very customisable and good value for money. It is also scalable for the future. The CRM and ecommerce integtration are the main downsides.

Alternatives Considered

NetSuite is much more expensive and is difficult to customise or integrate.
SAP is a more complex and powerful system, but several times more expensive to implement and run.

The main benefit and stake up of using S/4 HANA is all in one scenario, we have everything under one system which ultimately helped us in improving the performance stability and real-time type of response time. It has reduced the reconciliation issue improved FI and CO related transactions and mitigate the dependability of different objects to get the results.

Return on Investment

  • Time to match customer payments has decreased by approximately 30%.
  • Time to enter sales orders has decreased by approx 10%.
  • It has enabled up to easily access our system remotely, meaning we are able to be more flexible in our work.

  • Offsource using/switching to S/4 HANA have no impact in-fact it has more benefits,
  • It has greater value added to the business by improving the performance, and productivity with the help of using Fiori for S/4 HANA which is been delivered with thousands of apps for different departments as per the usages.
  • There is huge amount of savings from usages of traditional DBs from IT infra team.
