What the cloud means for your business

SAP S/4HANA Cloud is a software-as-a-service (SaaS) ERP, based on SAP’s HANA in-memory database meaning you reap the benefits of continuously enriched features, whilst being able to do business in real-time, on a global scale:

  • Accelerated business growth: Leverage built-in best practices to unlock operational efficiencies across standard business processes and unlock the power of embedded insights, advanced situation handling and process automation to increase agility and drive operational excellence.
  • Lower total cost of ownership: A cloud environment is scalable: just add blocks or remove them as your business needs change. As such, you can free up capital for investments that are more closely linked to your core business. 
  • Faster time to market: The cloud transforms traditional on-premise implementations – which can take months – into a matter of hours – so you can quickly capitalise on the latest market trends. 

Continuous innovation

SAP ensures your business stays ahead of the game with twice-yearly releases of the latest and greatest features, eliminating major upgrade projects and allowing fast and cost-effective adoption of new technology and process innovations. 

Build your own innovations with a fully extensible platform that empowers you to enrich processes, adapt requirements and integrate solutions across your entire system landscape. 

With options for key user extensibility, developer extensibility and side-by-side extensibility you have the power to develop, test and innovate across all areas of the solution, from custom forms and templates for end users through to integration with SAP BTP services. 


Setting the standard for success 

  • Deliver results, faster with pre-configured industry best practices and processes, straight out-of-the-box.

  • Scale at your own pace with built-in standard country localisations and delivered languages, localisation tool and extensibility to cover any remaining countries.

  • Drive collaboration with a modern UX that offers mobile capability and integrates with Microsoft Teams and Google Workspace. 

SAP S/4HANA Cloud helps you connect processes and people, integrating your company with the digital world at large.
