What You'll Learn

In an economy where insight, flexibility, and responsiveness are critical to success, companies cannot rely on yesterday’s technologies — they need a digital core that can meet modern business needs with real-time enterprise resource management. With these requirements in mind, many SAP customers are either already making the move to SAP S/4HANA or starting to make their plans. So how can you ensure a successful deployment?

This webinar examines the factors to take into consideration when deploying SAP S/4HANA. Based on the results of an in-depth IDC survey of more than 300 SAP customers, of which 67% either are live with SAP S/4HANA or have plans to be, highlights include:

• The three key business drivers identified by customers currently live with or planning to deploy SAP S/4HANA: real-time access to information, improved employee productivity, and reduced costs
• The 10 key insights shared by live customers on their experience with SAP S/4HANA
• How the construction company Katerra deployed SAP S/4HANA 1610 to streamline its financials, order management, supply chain, and project systems while increasing visibility into operations with a single source of truth
