      What does "digital core" mean?

      The "digitization of business processes" is often interpreted differently. Many people only think of business process automation at first, which reduces manual work steps. With SAP S/4HANA, you have considerably more digitization options, which eliminates the separation of the direct ERP system and your digital value chains. In concrete terms, this means that data from your vendors, business partners, customers or machines is processed in real time and ready for direct use. All information gained is integrated directly into SAP S/4HANA and can be used in a holistic and automated way. In this way, data itself becomes a production factor and a valuable basis for innovations in your business.
