SAP Next Generation iERP-S/4HANA & S4HC Technology Insights

I. iERP History

The guys have talked about cloud-based German blue blood and the beauty of intelligence, so today we're going to talk about the technical cornerstones that will support this future smart ERP.

This intelligent (Intelligent) ERP is born out of S/4hana and is complemented by an ecosystem of tools, resources and services scaled to support your future journey; it has multiple deployment options offering cloud (multi-tenant), cloud (single-tenant) and local installations; and it is the only ERP solution that offers a unified user interface, unified Codeline and unified data model across all environments. Today we begin with his journey of technological innovation.

II. Application builds on the past and creates new life

30+ years of ERP experience, deep understanding of the core of the true meaning of the senior architects team, simple to say, no decades of industry experience, what is the complexity, which is simple, how to "from simple to complex". What is really at the core; what are the best practices; how to cope with the requirements of rapid, agile development, continuous iteration; and yet guarantee to support customer applications - these are the building blocks that underpin S/4hana.

Let's start by looking at the complete architecture of ERP, which has grown and toughened over three decades, supporting the core applications of countless enterprises. The system as a whole is "heavy", and the whole situation is affected by one hair, and because of this, many customers have a heavy historical burden of the system.

The innovation of technology and the fast changing times demand that our ERP must also create new life. The innovation starts with the architecture.

Stripping out non-core module functionality first, then streamlining the layers of the underlying framework, reduces the ERP data objects by nearly 40% just by doing this. The next step was to streamline and refine the core functionality to form S/4CORE, while the underlying database was built into today's S/4HANA using SAP's in-memory database, HANA.

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~~
