The global and independent platform for the SAP community.

One step forward and two steps back

What is the business and technical outcome of the corona pandemic and shutdown? One step forward and two steps back or vice versa? Will we have progressed further and faster at the end of this year due to the challenges or will we be behind our project plans?

Many topics are undisputed and correct: digital transformation, DB release change to Hana, S/4, BW/4 and C/4, as well as cloud computing with SuccessFactors, Concur and Ariba, experience management with Qualtrics, etc.

But the stormy advance into a new ERP era began for the SAP community when the world economy, globalization and international logistics chains were perfect and successful.

Home offices and a focus on local supply and production capacities have destroyed many concepts and led to a rethink. Does the existing SAP customer need Ariba for global trade, Concur for global travel, S/4 and Hana for global logistics and production?

No one yet knows whether the digital transformation of SAP's existing customers is two steps forward and the corona pandemic is one step back, or vice versa:

Perhaps sticking to AnyDB, Abap and Suite 7 would be a successful interim step until 2030. In any case, SAP owes the community many answers.

Work on SAP Basis is crucial for successful S/4 conversion. This gives the so-called Competence Center strategic importance among SAP's existing customers. Regardless of the operating model of an S/4 Hana, topics such as automation, monitoring, security, application lifecycle management, and data management are the basis for the operative S/4 operation. For the second time already, E3 Magazine is hosting a summit in Salzburg for the SAP community to get comprehensive information on all aspects of S/4 Hana groundwork. With an exhibition, expert presentations, and plenty to talk about, we again expect numerous existing customers, partners, and experts in Salzburg. E3 Magazine invites you to Salzburg for learning and exchange of ideas on June 5 and 6, 2024.
