Greetings and salutations. Cheers to health and happiness in 2021. In this blog post I will summarize the 2021 Value Blog Series campaign for SAP S/4HANA Cloud with a little SAP Activate wrapped tightly around our flagship product. I do recommend reading the Value Blog posts for March in the order that I have them listed below. sven.denecken , COO S/4HANA and Head of Product Success at SAP SE writes a nice series this month for SAP S/4HANA Cloud and the evolution of our flagship product and how it is transforming companies in every industry around the world.

On March 15th Sven wrote the blog post, SAP Best Practice Enterprise Management Layer for SAP S/4HANA. - The Enterprise Management Layer is ideal for new and existing customers operating in multiple countries and looking for a global template offering standardized, preconfigured end-to-end business processes to start their SAP S/4HANA digital journey. Here you can leverage SAP Best Practices pre-configured, pre-activated – without a big project feel.

Combined with SAP Activate, the Enterprise Management Layer will accelerate each customer’s implementation project, either used as a reference system or sandbox during the Explore phase, or as a global template to build on, for net new customers as well as customers transitioning from ECC to SAP S/4HANA who choose a greenfield, ‘back to standard’ approach.

On March 18th Sven wrote the blog post, Two-Tier ERP for SAP S/4HANA Cloud.

When a company implements different ERP systems for different parts of the organization, the industry calls this a Two-Tier ERP strategy. This strategy is driven by the realization that the needs of large, complex organizations are very different than the needs of smaller, simpler organizations. As companies look to strengthen their Industry 4.0 strategy, they want more effective subsidiaries while still maintaining a high level of collaboration and coordination across the entire organization. Various Two-Tier deployment options shown below can support the customer in their journey towards Industry 4.0.

On March 27th Sven writes the blog post, SAP S/4HANA Cloud - Digital Transformation is Transforming to the Cloud

Sven writes this blog to showcase how SAP S/4HANA Cloud helps customers to achieve a competitive advantage by leveraging ground-breaking technologies. Moving to SAP S/4HANA Cloud offers companies the “once in a lifetime” opportunity to redesign processes and systems. Read the full blog post to learn how our SAP customer, Macmahon Holdings Limited, highlights and their experiences and Digital Transformation journey with SAP S/4HANA Cloud ERP.

Thank you and I hope I provided you some value in the summary of the SAP S/4HANA Value Blog Series. I will summarize all the SAP S/4HANA Value blogs in a few days with a list of the Q1 2021 blog posts and accompanying SAP Activate supporting value blogs.
