Increase Productivity with the Latest Innovations in SAP S/4HANA Cloud, Public Edition

Feature

With the SAP S/4HANA Cloud 2302 update available in February, SAP is delivering new modern experiences, foundational capabilities, and core enterprise resource planning (ERP) innovations to improve organizational and employee productivity.

Over the last year, we have been pleased to see an increase in user adoption and customer satisfaction, and we always look for ways to make the product better based on customer and partner feedback.

Modern Experience

We are taking collaboration and user experience to the next level, enabling users to collaborate easily and make better decisions based on business data and processes. Some of the 2302 highlights include:

  • The Share as Tab feature released through an Early Adopter Care program: As the name suggests, users can collaborate with their colleagues directly in Microsoft Teams by adding live data based on SAP Fiori elements as tabs in their Teams channels.

  • The customer usage dashboard provides functional usage and experience data in an automated way in SAP for Me to help customers to understand their investment return value, monitor their adoption and consumption, and make data-driven decisions based on their own company usage.

 SaaS Foundation

Customers operate globally and keep up with ever-evolving legal mandates. We are committed to delivering a global service and now support more than48 local versions. In addition to localization, in release 2302, we heavily invested in other foundational topics, such as two-tier ERP, in-product accelerators, and extensibility, including:

  • The addition of three new SAP-delivered local versions in 2302 for Argentina, Egypt, and Greece. Early adopters are ongoing with general adoption delivery for all customers planned in 2308.
  • The switch to Euro in Croatia was effective January 1, 2023. Financial reports have to be compiled using Euro and a Croatia local version is now available.
  • Global organizations are increasingly adopting a multi-site ERP strategy to run their global businesses on two or more ERP systems to meet their market needs. The following are now available: material requirement planning visibility in two-tier ERP, for better coverage on the material demand and supply planning of replenishment elements between tier-1 and tier-2 systems; and liquidity planning with SAP Analytics Cloud, which enables the system to predict future cash flows that can be used as reference data in long term liquidity planning.
  • The released baseline activation service and in-product accelerators — including automation bots, templates, and bundles — reduce time to value and accelerate customer implementations.
  • Extensibility is a key attribute of every scenario, and we deliver an extensive range of cloud APIs and tools to support these scenarios without compromising innovation updates.

And So Much More

Throughout this year we will deliver many more innovations that bring value to our customers. For more details around what is being delivered for SAP S/4HANA Cloud 2302, see Bert Schulze’s release blog on the SAP Community.
