The largest global technology event, SAP SAPPHIRE NOW, took place in Orlando from 17th -19th May. For those who have not had an opportunity to scrutinise content from the presentations available online, we have distilled this to share 6 takeaways, which we believe will resonate with our contacts. These were selected based on their likely impact on your future technology investments and echo the predictions and advice from our thought-leading team of SAP specialists here at CompriseIT.

SAP points out that it is advisable for organisations to develop their S/4HANA Roadmap before embarking on this journey.

What started as an announcement accompanied by a series of marketing messages or "marketecture", the S/4HANA customer implementations are proof that S/4HANA is now real and gaining momentum. In fact, Hasso Plattner’s keynote went as far as HANA DR architecture.

In line with the rapid evolution of new technology, Hasso reassured customers with news of the upcoming SGI 48 TB kit to handle even higher volumes of data, faster.
Fiori, the SAP User Interface, is here to stay. Fiori Cloud, Fiori Mobile and Fiori for iOS have joined the family.

SAP have restated their commitment to deliver cloud to cloud and cloud to on-premise integration using HCP-HCI.

The much anticipated collaboration between SAP and Microsoft addresses the needs of customers with a joint SAP/Microsoft strategy, allowing better/quicker integration between the platforms.

We believe that it is important for SAP customers to start preparing their journey to S/4HANA now. Through our collaboration with BackOffice Associates, we can offer a one-stop shopping experience supporting your initiatives for adopting SAP S/4HANA.
