I am a consultant and I implement SAP solutions for customers. I have worked on ECC and SAP S/4HANA Cloud. SAP S/4HANA Cloud is the best ERP I have worked so far with digital core. It is well integrated within different modules and with different SAP products. It can address issues with MRP run, demand planning, integrated planning, integrated PP/DS for detailed scheduling and Fiori analytics. This comes with low infrastructure cost as it is a cloud solution.
  • Enhanced MRP runs well
  • Analytics works well
  • Integrated EWM and PP/DS works well
  • If Fiori can be made faster in terms of performance
  • If SAP can provide better analytical transactions
  • F4 Help options can be improved
It is well suited for an industry with big sales volume, who needs highly integrated demand and supply planning and well-integrated production and warehouse operations.

All the employee services including Payroll, HR services etc. are on S/4HANA private cloud edition. S/4HANA simplifies and provide greater speed. It also provide Analytical sevices with Transaction support. Public cloud version simplifies the services with SaaS model with limited Industry support ( expecting it to provide more industry support going forward)
  • Simplication
  • Analytical support
  • Speed
  • great UX
  • More Industry support for public cloud
  • More LoB for public cloud
SAP S/4HANA Cloud is a great if you are currently using ECC. You can either convert to Private cloud edition (If your requirements are not standard processes and wants to have better control) or Public cloud ( If you want to start with clean system with standrdized system with enhancement using FIORI and BTP services). For some of the industry (except professional services and Manufacturing) public cloud version is not suitable
Great support and documentation from SAP
Faster Innovation

Job Scheduling for BW, CRM etc.
BW process scheduling ( Process chains, Buisness objects, IBP and data services cloud)
  • performance
  • easy integration for job scheduling using xbp 3
  • good integration for SAP BTP
  • more examples are needed for integration e.g. SAP HANA xsa job scheduling via external application using rest ( python, curl .. examples)
complex workflows e.g. commission calculations database is very fast IBP on BTP has good performance (more examples are needed)

We use it as our financial system, therefore it is very critical.
  • Approval Workflow of PO
  • Good UX for presenting details of items
  • Filtering is confusing
  • LDAP integration seems not good or not well implemented
For small companies with less demands of data control and infra control

We use it internally for our own processes, sales orders, quotations, invoicing, expenses, etc. It makes things easier because we can have access to it via web browser and also mobile app.
  • Accessibility

  • Ease of customization
It has worked very effectively for software divisions or companies. Using S/4HANA Cloud for the administrative functions works really well

We need the performance to support processing large amount of customer data daily. We also need to archive the data to meet regulatory requirements for historic data. The use of S/4HANA data processing and storage is the foundation of our company's information system. It must provides reliable and efficient processing and presentation of data to both internal users and external customers. We need a system that is modern and can be supported easily.
  • Can handle extremely large amount of data
  • Transfer data across various business systems efficiently
  • Good interface for business users
  • Some user interfaces seems disjointed.
This is a great product for enterprise data processing involving large amount of data. Daily batch processing of customer data such as billings, invoicing are best usage of this technology. Reporting also benefits from the capability of this platform.
Unsure if it can be scaled down to support mobile or offline applications.

Review of the cloud

Score 9 out of 10

We use it for learning SAP in SAP classes for new consultants. We also implement SAP Cloud versions in different companies, where I form a part of the team responsible for the authorisations and GRC. The problems we have is that not to many documentation can be found the web in order to solve any problems. As we are still learning the cloud versions sometimes it takes some time to figure everything out.
  • The use of SAP standard, which is a great advantage
  • Much easier to configure
  • Building catalogs and groups for authorisation purposes are straight forward
  • As it is all standard, sometimes is misses a little deepdive
  • Customizing part is still more easy in the GUI
  • Autorisation tracking is not always that clear
I like the SAP Cloud scenarios as the patching are done automatically, this is a great advantage compared to before. This way authorization is still up to date. Still it is a bit weird that the customer still has to include this in his contract or SLA as he is the responsible one at the end of the day. Cloud makes thins easier in a lot of ways, maintenance of the server but also in configuration as it sticks close to the standard.

Processes are new compared to ECC, sometimes similar but still quite different in usage. Customers need to get used to new Fiori interface. Even pdf display/download works differently in chrome browser
  • overview of users and jobs they have running
  • license management
  • navigation to other apps
  • how catalogs are composed and cannot be adjusted
  • need to display pdf, not download
well suited for maintenance of roles and users; I am not involved in the functional usage of S/4H Cloud

I was able to optimize my code for the HANA cloud database and use it for much deeper and more complex data. Business technology, systems, sales, purchasing, planning, compliance, accounts receivable and accounts payable departments use the SAP S/4HANA Cloud. As an ERP, SAP S/4HANA Cloud offers many advantages. Processes are integrated as data flows through different elements of the organization's financial and supply chain.
  • Accessible from anywhere, confident that your data is safe in your private or public cloud.
  • The upgrade process is simple to follow.
  • Nothing like that, an unreliable network can sometimes be a threat. VPN can be helpful in this case but has never been tried like that.
A scenario where SAP HANA Cloud is a good fit is when an organization wants to expand its business growth data and records. With SAP HANA, you get scalability and flexibility of functions according to your needs and requirements. Scenarios where SAP HANA Cloud is not suitable are license price choices and integration with other applications.

SAP is our system of record. All of our business processes run on SAP (with the exception of HR).
  • Business process solutions.
  • Strong data structure.
  • Strong security and authorizations.
  • Current user adoption of fiori.
  • Overall user experience.
SAP is very strong when it comes to addressing business processes. However, it does have a steep learning curve, and in companies that still use the old SAP GUI, the user experience is not great.

We use SAP S/4HANA Cloud to run our consulting and software business. We track billings and bookings to manage our projects and sales. We use reports from the solution to understanding how things are going. All of our employees use the application on a daily basis to record their time.
  • Good UX for entering time.
  • Integrated to our SSO.
  • Ability to get reports on project billings.
  • Reports could be more easily customized.
  • Sometimes the app doesn't refresh properly.
It's really solid for a professional services company and we are able to use it effectively. Sometimes, the reporting needs more flexibility.

We, as Bosch had implemented S/4 HANA cloud for one of India's prestigious Government sector Power Transmission Utility Corporation.

The customer had migrated from On-Premise systems to Cloud and we recommended them to choose SAP S/4 HANA cloud than other cloud ERP products.

The customer was using ECC 6.0 which became outdated, and customer wanted to migrate before the product becomes out of SAP support and with S/4 HANA cloud it offered UI friendly Fiori apps to user interface, the infrastructure offered quicker time to migrate
  • We had setup High Availability of S/4 HANA PRD instance, thereby the business interruption was almost nullified.
  • The infrastructure maintenance was easier to maintain when compared to On-Premise SAP systems
  • Since we are adopting Fit-to-Standard approach, we sticked with standard options and functionalities. So, we didn't perform extensive customization
S/4 HANA itself has new Business processes introduced, so few processes in the Finance area were really well suited for customer needs, whereas few processes in the Assets area weren't really useful

I am working for very large organisations where we need to perform so many transactions and also need to analyse business related data with currently basis.
This product get integrated with many advanced technologies and currently we are using it for machine learning.
It's memory database architecture and the integration of advanced technologies allow it to help solve complex problems in real-time and analyze more information faster than other products therefore
We require it for faster analytics and reporting purposes as per our company requirements.
And one of the best features of it is that we can deploy it on any type of cloud which is like on-premise, public cloud and managed cloud which gives us flexibility to choose where to deploy so that we can take care of cost as well as data privacy and security.
It gives unlimited workload capacity so we need not to worry about it.

  • It can be integrated with advanced technologies like Machine Learning, Artificial intelligence, embedded analytics.
  • It can provide multiple deployment platform like on-premise, public cloud, private cloud,or hybrid cloud.
  • It's in-memory database architecture and the integration of advanced technologies allow it to help to solve complex problems in real-time and analyze more information
  • Need improvement in its UI.
  • Better customer support
  • Need to have more skillful people to work on this technology.
First of all it gives us flexibility to deploy it anywhere whether it's on-premise, public cloud, private cloud or even hybrid cloud.
It is used for integration of advanced technologies like Machine Learning, Artificial intelligence, and robotics.
It has in-memory database architecture which is used to deal with complex problems and provide analytics report.
It is not useful for small level of task and also very less people have well knowledge to use this software so hard to make group of people to work with this software without providing training to them

SAP S/4HANA Cloud is a lean solution which embraces Multi-Tenant architecture. It emphasizes ease of management over flexibility. This is highly recommended for small/medium size enterprises. Hence it keeps the small/medium size enterprises to keep the costs minimum, as it is a managed public cloud product. It also helps the companies reduce their implementation time to a greater extent compared to the on-premise products.
  • Cost effective
  • Fully managed
  • Easy integrations
  • Less features compared to On-Premise products
  • Provide free Trial environments for individuals
  • More out of box integrations
Well suited for:
1. Small/Medium sized companies
2. Companies whose process are flexible to adapted to accommodated the standard processes in SAP.
Not well suited for:
1. Companies with established processes that are not flexible to change to adapt to SAP processes.
2. Companies which have huge custom developments and needs to tweak SAP processes in depth.
