WALLDORF — SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) today announced that SAP S/4HANA has been named “leader” in the 2018 ERP Value Matrix by Nucleus Research.
This reflects the great strides SAP has made to bring more of the capabilities that deliver intelligent ERP to SAP S/4HANA and SAP S/4HANA Cloud.
Nucleus Research evaluated numerous ERP market vendors based on their product usability and functionality and the value that customers gain from the capabilities. The ERP Value Matrix provides an annual snapshot of the ERP landscape. It is intended to help inform consumers about how effectively vendors are delivering value to customers and what a prospect can expect moving forward based on the investments vendors are making.
According to Nucleus Research, verticalization and delivering more custom functionality has remained at the core of the value proposition for many vendors. While only a few vendors claim to have the ability to serve any business, fewer still can deliver a solution platform flexible enough to enable customers and partners to build the capabilities needed cost-effectively. As a result, customers operating in niche microverticals should be better able to determine if a vendor can serve their needs based on specific business processes that enterprise resource software (ERP) software can support.
“By bringing intelligence to its applications, SAP is targeting use cases where customers can realize value quickly and make it simple for the user to take advantage of the technology,” said Seth Lippincott, analyst, Nucleus Research. “With each update of its solution, SAP combines and prepackages more of the technologies enabled by SAP Leonardo, such as machine learning, conversational AI and predictive analytics, with the 25 industry verticals serviced by the SAP ERP application. As SAP expands the number of scenarios in which it is applying intelligence, it will continue to increase customer efficiency and the value SAP S/4HANA Cloud delivers.”
