S/4HANA Cloud will have a heavy presence at Sapphire this year, given the market shift to consume in the cloud.

We have seen for some time clear indicators that the market is shifting to consume ERP in the cloud and that this is set to grow rapidly in the coming years. There is a significant amount of evidence out there that points to the growth of the cloud, but for me there are a number of leading indicators from the analyst firms that show how fast things are moving. Most analyst firms predict up to 20% growth rates in the next 24 months for the Cloud ERP market. According to the analysts, Finance is leading the charge as the next LOB already shifting to a SaaS approach, especially for more service centric companies.

For those of you may not already be aware, S/4HANA Cloud is our ERP cloud offering that benefits from the same game changing innovations we delivered with S/4HANA, but now via a SaaS delivery model, all managed and delivered by SAP. SAP S/4HANA Cloud is the cloud ERP solutions best suited for organizations with more than 1,500 employees, and for subsidiaries and operational units of larger enterprises. Also check in to our recent series on use cases here.

Come and meet us…

At SAPPHIRE and ASUG Annual Conference we will be demonstrating our upcoming innovations and share more details on what will be delivered in future releases. We will also have a number of customers attending who will share their experiences of how S/4HANA Cloud has supported their ERP transformations.

So, stay tuned and I hope to meet you there.
