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.
SAP S/4HANA Enterprise Management - what is that? SAP S/4HANA Enterprise Management designates the comprehensive ERP system that users already know from the past. However, the digital value chain of the company is integrated in addition. SAP S/4HANA Enterprise Management is the new name for the familiar and further developed SAP ERP system in the fourth ERP generation. The functions of previous systems are still available. They are integrated into the new HANA data model step by step and optimized by improved functions.
The business area solutions – what do these describe? Business area solutions are SAP S/4HANA solutions that combine all SAP S/4HANA Enterprise Management core functions with specific solutions from the SAP portfolio for the respective business area.
