The arrival of our next-generation business suite, SAP S/4HANA (short for SAP Business Suite 4 SAP HANA), has created quite a buzz. Delivering on its promise to help customers Run Simple, SAP is committed to providing clear, easy road maps tailored to prospective customers.

During a recent Webinar, SAP HANA Experts answered basic questions about what SAP S/4HANA is, what a possible deployment path looks like, and how and where an organization can start on this journey.
