Finance transformation

The SAP S/4HANA® digital core ERP, powered by SAP HANA®, is essential to transformation at many organisations today. For the finance function, especially, SAP S/4HANA Finance capabilities, can help finance leaders make an impact that matters.

With SAP S/4HANA, finance executives can begin to conquer complexity, focus resources on more value-added activities, and support the organisation’s ability to pivot—to operate as a “built to evolve” Kinetic Enterprise™, enabled by a clean core, intelligent technologies, cloud solutions, and an inclusive ecosystem of capabilities and services.

<p>Powered by the SAP HANA<sup>®</sup>&nbsp;in-memory computing platform, SAP<sup>®</sup>&nbsp;S/4HANA Finance can offer an accelerated path to a streamlined and centralised finance function, integrated business planning activities, and more flexible and timely analytics. The solution’s Central Finance capabilities allow you to begin posting transactions from multiple systems in real time to a central system—effectively centralising financial reporting and transactional processing.</p><p><br></p><p>Through a clean, intuitive user interface, SAP<sup>®</sup>&nbsp;S/4HANA Finance provides a single, real-time version of the truth—supporting greater data transparency and giving users the ability to drill down to line-item detail and to access real-time reporting. Executed effectively via the cloud or on premise, SAP<sup>®</sup>&nbsp;S/4HANA Finance ultimately can help finance leaders enhance productivity, accelerate business processes, and respond rapidly to disruption and new business demands.</p><p><br></p><p>As part of a broader Kinetic Enterprise transformation, SAP S/4HANA and the finance capabilities it brings can help organisations operate in a more agile manner and innovate more readily—thanks to a clean ERP and reduced technical debt, cloud-enabled responsiveness for moving at the pace of disruption, and built-in intelligence.</p>

<p>Implementing SAP S/4HANA to support finance transformation and activate the Kinetic Enterprise will require a broad spectrum of skills and experience. Deloitte can help.</p><p><br></p><p><strong>SAP strength.</strong>&nbsp;SAP<sup>®</sup>&nbsp;Ariba<sup>®</sup>. SAP<sup>®</sup>&nbsp;SuccessFactors<sup>®</sup>.
