SAP Reaches Milestone with More Than 1,000 Companies Now Live on SAP S/4HANA

WALLDORF SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) announced that its real-time intelligent enterprise resource planning (ERP) suite, SAP S/4HANA, has reached an important milestone.

SAP S/4HANA, designed specifically for SAP HANA, the market-leading in-memory database, is the digital core that provides broad functionality and a high degree of flexibility for businesses of all sizes, in all industries, and can be deployed on premise, in the cloud or with a hybrid approach.

The latest release of SAP S/4HANA (1709), available earlier this month, aims to make it even easier for companies to run live with intelligent ERP. It includes machine learning capabilities and predictive analytics–enabled core business processes, landscape consolidation, and industry and line-of-business innovation.

Daimler AG will become the 1,000th customer to go live with SAP S/4HANA as it deploys its next-generation global order and supply system. This provides Daimler with a safe and sustainable IT environment that has the capabilities needed to meet business objectives, now and in the future.

“The momentum of SAP S/4HANA, the fastest-selling product in SAP’s history, is ongoing, and there are now 1,000 live implementations illustrating our continued market leadership in ERP,” said Uwe Grigoleit, SAP S/4HANA Go-to-Market general manager and senior vice president at SAP. “SAP S/4HANA has helped customers worldwide realize benefits including improved employee productivity, real-time access to information using in-memory technology and support for the realization of new business models driving our digital world.”

IDC Customer Survey About SAP S/4HANA Adoption

SAP also announced a new IDC-authored white paper, “Voice of the Customer: 10 Insights, Direct from SAP S/4HANA Pioneers,” sponsored by SAP.

“In a survey of over 300 SAP customers and interviews with organizations live with SAP S/4HANA, organizations reported concern that the ERP at the core of their business had become an impediment to being competitive in today’s world,” IDC Fellow Henry Morris said. “Many saw the need to refresh their ERP to embrace new digital business models, drive greater employee productivity and provide real-time access to the latest information impacting their business.”

On October 5, SAP will host a webcast on the survey results with IDC’s Morris and SAP customer Grace Liu, chief information officer at Katerra. More information can also be found on the SAP S/4HANA blog.
