Drive Digital Transformation with SUSE and S/4HANA
The digital transformation has long since begun. It is transforming entire industries, by opening up unimaginable ways for companies to increase their productivity: for example, by creating more efficient business processes, more innovative business models, and customer relationships characterized by constant, seamless, and individual service experiences.
Important indicators are:
- Shorter innovation cycles
- Solutions replacing products
- Information technology becomes more vertical focused
- Business is driven by automated processes and new business models
SAP is focused on digital transformation with an emphasis on moving SAP applications to the cloud. The digital transformation strategy is built on SAP S/4HANA, a new suite of business applications fully built on the most advanced in-memory platform today, using modern design principles with the SAP Fiori user experience. S/4HANA delivers multiple simplifications (customer adoption, data model, user experience, decision making, and business processes and models) and innovations (Internet of Things, Big Data, business networks and mobile-first) to help businesses run more easily in the digital economy.
As practice shows, these new IT infrastructure technologies and provider models for SAP HANA and SAP S/4HANA are supported optimally through open standards. And SUSE has always played a leading role in the SAP environment. Entering the digital age, SUSE is supporting SAP operations with perfectly tailored open-source solutions.
SUSE has also taken up a key position in three other core areas of digital transformation: cloud computing, the software-defined data center (SDDC), and DevOps. For example, together with Cloud Foundry and the storage solution SUSE Enterprise Storage, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications and the administration and orchestration solution SUSE OpenStack Cloud offer SAP customers the option to implement a Platform-as-a-Service infrastructure according to the DevOps approach, namely based on a software-defined architecture.
