SAP S/4HANA Cloud is the world’s first hands-free ERP solution

  1. 1. SAP S/4HANA Cloud is the world’s first hands-free ERP solution 1 2 3 4 5 Before S/4HANA Cloud Meet April This will not provide senior management with the insights and information they have come to expect from her. April is a project financial controller for an international component manufacturing company in Canada. She is a rising star and on track for a promotion where she will be the youngest female senior manager at the company. At 3:00 pm on Thursday, April opens her email and sees a note from her boss about senior management wanting to get the latest status on her mission critical project. She notices that a meeting has been scheduled for first thing tomorrow morning, and immediately feels her stomach drop. April did not get the latest spend on the project from all the members and knows she has to calculate the forecast manually. To show her stuff, she has been tasked with managing a strategic internal project which involves onboarding two new manufacturers, based in China and India. Since this is an international project with members working in multiple time zones, getting in touch with all the project stakeholders, having access to the latest information on project spend, and having insight into the costing forecast is incredibly difficult. As a result, April ends up working all night to get this information from team members. It’s 8:30 am and April feels terrible, knowing fully well that her promotion is on the line. Not only does she have to present an inaccurate forecast to the management team, she must also come clean to them and admit that the information is not up to the standards they expect. At the back of her mind she also feels guilty for sacrificing quality time with her French bulldog and leaving him home alone while she was pulling an all-nighter at the office. It is 4:00 am and April has only been able to get a hold of 50% of the project members. She now has to estimate future costs on the project without knowing what the actual situation is. Time is ticking away and April still doesn’t have a good prediction for the next morning. Better yet, the latest machine learning capabilities within S/4HANA Cloud were able to use historical project data to make accurate cost predictions for his new project. After S/4HANA Cloud Meet Pepijn This would have been an insurmountable and high-risk task if it were dependent on the legacy ERP system they previously used. Pepijn is a project financial controller at a large automotive supplier that is rolling out new and time-sensitive compliance measures across the global organization. 1 2 3 Luckily,Pepijn’s company has recently implemented SAP S/4HANA Cloud – SAP’s flagship intelligent ERP solution – which allows Pepijn to share and see project data across the entire global organization, across teams and divisions. The solution also gives him complete, accurate, timely insights whenever he needs it – especially during unexpected moments when senior management requests for them. Thanks to the latest release of SAP S/4HANA Cloud, Pepijn now has access to the latest enhancements that will empower him to make even better – and more informed – decisions anytime and anywhere. With SAP’s built-in digital assistant for the enterprise, SAP CoPilot, Pepijn was able to quickly pull up the latest status of his project(s) using a simple voice command. He did not have to type or click through multiple screens to find what he needed! 4 5 In the end, Pepijn was able to quickly create a report for senior management within 30 minutes! Win! The system is, in fact, so intelligent that Pepijn did not need to make manual calculations while enjoying greater data accuracy, bigger time savings and the ability to provide in-the-moment visibility anytime he needed to. Pepijn feels on top of the world and was able to go home early that evening to his two chiweenie puppies. © 2018 SAP SE or an SAP affiliate company. All rights reserved.
