  4. 4. Stack Strategically What’s happening? The technology stack is now a key opportunity for competitive advantage. The days of tying the business to a single monolithic platform are over. Aim for platform independence to increase business flexibility and future-proof the organization. How can SAP solutions help you stack strategically? For example: § SAP Business Technology Platform (BTP) brings interoperable, platform-independent containers, microservices, and APIs to enable a flexible “plug and play” multi-cloud architecture. § Pivot to DevOps approach to integrate development and operations more closely. Use APIs, microservices, automated testing and automated stub testing for ecosystem connection, enabled by SAP BTP and hyperscaler services. § Get real-time insights from SAP S/4HANA® embedded analytics, SAP BW/4HANA® data warehousing, and SAP Analytics Cloud. 4 #techvision2021 Technology Vision for SAP Solutions 2021 Copyright © 2021 Accenture.

  5. 5. Mirrored World What’s happening? As businesses thread digital technology throughout their operations, huge new sources of data are being unlocked. These are fueling massive networks of intelligent digital twins. This mirrored world enables businesses to simulate, predict, automate and dynamically respond to data across the lifecycle of physical assets. It lets them ask “what-if” questions about future scenarios, and design and test products before building them. How can SAP solutions help you unlock the power of digital twins? For example: § Gain supply chain visibility with the SAP Logistics Business Network, and by integrating processes with SAP Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence and SAP BTP. § Achieve digital continuity by connecting engineering, manufacturing, operations, and partner organizations via the integrated SAP Product Lifecycle Management and/or SAP Production Engineering and Operations embedded solutions. § Enhance forecasting and predictive capabilities with SAP Integrated Business Planning and demand-driven MRP capabilities in SAP solutions. 5 #techvision2021 Technology Vision for SAP Solutions 2021 Copyright © 2021 Accenture.

  6. 6. I, Technologist What’s happening? Today’s digital solutions are becoming so accessible, so user-friendly, they’re empowering a radical democratization of enterprise technology. Thanks to advances in natural language processing, no-code or low-code programming, and intelligent automation, people now have the tools to develop their own digital solutions—right at the point of need. How can SAP solutions help you benefit from the democratization of technology? For example: § Low-code and no-code solutions, such as SAP Ruum and SAP AppGyver let grassroots “citizen developers” solve their own technology- related problems. § SAP Fiori® enables modern and highly customizable consumer-style user interfaces for both B2B and B2C contexts. § SAP Intelligent RPA, bolstered by AI solutions can enhance business processes and free employees from the burden of repetitive work. 6 #techvision2021 Technology Vision for SAP Solutions 2021 Copyright © 2021 Accenture.

  7. 7. Anywhere, Everywhere What’s happening? The COVID-19 pandemic forced the world into perhaps the biggest shift in ways of working in living memory. Companies can now choose how best to capitalize on the newly equipped virtualized workforce, enabling their people to drive change from anywhere and everywhere. How can SAP solutions help you adapt to the new world of virtualized work? For example: § SAP solutions’ integration with Microsoft Teams enables not only virtual meetings and document editing, but also frictionless interaction with customer and operational data across systems. § Consistent user experience (UX) can be achieved via SAP’s Central Launchpad Service, as well as SAP BTP features like One Workflow Inbox, and a seamless user experience with SAP Fiori. § Qualtrics solutions help you understand and act on employee sentiment about enterprise user experiences. § Human-machine collaboration can be enhanced by integrating SAP solutions with next-generation interfaces such as extended reality and enhancing workforce collaboration with SAP BTP. 7 #techvision2021 Technology Vision for SAP Solutions 2021 Copyright © 2021 Accenture.

  8. 8. From Me to We What’s happening? The pace of change and complexity of today’s business landscape means companies need to look beyond their four walls and coordinate with other parties along the value chain. From supply chains to digital ecosystems, connecting via multiparty systems will be essential in rebuilding and renewing for the future. How can SAP solutions and multiparty systems help you coordinate through chaos? For example: § GreenToken by SAP provides multiparty-enabled trust and transparency in complex raw materials supply chains. § Distributed ledger technologies can be combined with APIs on SAP Business Technology Platform to design and shape an industry-specific multiparty solution. § SAP Responsible Design and Production can help companies consume fewer resources and build sustainability into the design process. § SAP Business Network will provide a unified, holistic overview of supply chain ecosystems across trading partner networks—including logistics, traceability, and equipment management and maintenance. 8 #techvision2021 Technology Vision for SAP Solutions 2021 Copyright © 2021 Accenture.
