Another extension to SAP S/4HANA Cloud that is already available helps to match invoices automatically, reducing the time spent on this task by up to 50%.

SAP Ecosystem Enables Success in the Cloud Economy

In building the SDK, SAP worked closely with more than a dozen partners to get real-time feedback. As a result, it developed a solution that allows developers to use intelligent enterprise resource planning (ERP) software from SAP to create custom applications and monetize them through SAP App Center. Beyond the technical features of the SDK, developers can connect, collaborate and co-innovate as part of the growing SAP ecosystem. This collaborative environment, supported by the experience and knowledge of SAP, helps organizations address the unique needs of their enterprise, and ultimately gain a competitive advantage in the cloud economy.
