The S/4HANA Cloud Numbers Don't Lie
If your legacy Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system is draining your resources more than it’s supporting your operations, it’s time to level up to an intelligent, next-generation Cloud ERP business suite. SAP S/4HANA Cloud integrates your processes, data and people for an ERP system that enables your business to innovate and stay a step ahead of the competition.
The proof is in the pudding – or rather, the numbers. Here are five figures (reported by SAP) that you need to know when considering a move to SAP S/4HANA Cloud:
#1: 25-30% lower TCO
Changes and support incidents account for approximately 50 percent of traditional, on-premises ERP operations costs. SAP S/4HANA Cloud reduces those costs – and the impact on internal IT teams – for a total cost of ownership (TCO) that’s 25 to 30 percent lower.
#2: 75% Reduction of on-premise incidents
SAP S/4HANA Cloud’s high-level process standardization and a simplified user front end minimize your internal team’s involvement in incident support. This will free up time and enable them to apply critical thinking to your business.
Users report incidents directly to SAP, allowing your IT staff to dedicate less time to “how-to” questions and process issues.
#3: 50% Reduction of IT staff
With SAP eliminating or managing the majority of changes and incidents, you can reduce the size of your IT staff by 50 percent with SAP S/4HANA Cloud compared to an on-premise ERP landscape. This gives you the opportunity to cut costs or reassign existing staff to high-value projects.
#4: 40% Reduction in waste
SAP S/4HANA Cloud users reported up to a 40 percent reduction in waste, thanks to features like built-in processes based on best practices, streamlined product life cycle management and efficient planning for complex manufacturing.
#5: 30% Reduction in inventory levels
SAP S/4HANA Cloud users reported a 30 percent reduction in inventory levels. With features like predictive analytics and integrated inventory and logistics processes, you can more accurately estimate what you’ll need and when and maintain full visibility into your stock.
