At this point, S/4HANA uses only 17% of the database objects of a traditional ERP, which is what is known as "de-cluttering".
III. Solid and stable infrastructure
To do a good job, a good tool must first be used. The business architecture is streamlined, the technology is condensed, there are no sharpshooters, no solid foundation, it is like a building in the air. In-memory database, columnar storage, achievement of core framework streamlining.
The streamlining of application modules and simplification of database objects described above are just part of the path to innovation. After utilizing HANA, redundant summary tables and index tables are no longer needed, as well as intermediate tables built for reporting and analysis (to ask why not, follow the public HANA-related introduction). If the dozen or so core financial tables below are streamlined, only four of them need to be retained.
Is that all? No, there's more: S/4HANA introduces the "big wide table": the original multi-table correlation E-R model is simplified to a single table structure, and the original index tables, summary tables, and row item tables become views inside HANA, which are used to maintain the continuity of the system, but no actual data storage. This is the most significant change, not only to ensure the uniqueness of business data, but also greatly reduce data redundancy, and for reporting, analysis applications to provide the greatest convenience, business personnel also do not have to wait for IT staff to help process the report data, analysis data, to help business users to achieve true real-time access.
Thanks to SAP's deep understanding of ERP, best practices in various industries, coupled with SAP's technological innovation, and the development strategy of SAP Cloud Platform. It's what brought S4HANA from 1511 to today's 1809, with the immediate release of S4HC1811. Such rapid iteration has allowed for rapid response to enterprise changes and the rapid user expansion that we have today both in OP and on the cloud. Continuous innovation has led to today's iERP (Intelligent Enterprise ERP).
In addition to these technical innovations, there are many "black technologies" in iERP!
I'll talk to you all in the future~~
