SAP S/4HANA Enterprise Management 1610: Overview of Key Changes
SAP SE presented the latest version of its ERP software SAP S/4HANA Enterprise Management on Monday. Release 1610 delivers a number of innovations, setting new milestones in the ERP software segment.
Among other things, the solution features optimized portfolio and project management, integration of the complete S/4HANA Finance module including Embedded Planning and Embedded Consolidation into the digital core, and the integration of Extended Warehouse Management and Detailed Production Planning. The oil and gas industry is integrated into the core with this release as well, so that all 25 branches of industry are now fully represented. These are just a few examples from the extensive catalog of changes. Among the many innovations, the User Experience, Embedded Analytics, and SAP Activate deserve special mention.
Improved User Experience with SAP Fiori 2.0
SAP sets new standards for the User Experience with SAP Fiori 2.0. The innovative and trendsetting user interface even earned the Red Dot Award 2015. An intuitive, personalized dashboard that brings all important information together forms the core of the solution. All input screens feature an automatic suggestion and completion function that speeds up data processing and reduces the error rate. The floating panel is an innovation that makes working with the solution much easier. It can be used to buffer information, share it with other users, or to prepare complex business scenarios. All that without leaving the main screen where one was working originally – so that multiple tasks can be carried out in parallel.
Analytics becomes part of the digital core with this release. Combined with the HANA database, this further simplifies and speeds up data analysis. The solution also contains specific tools for business users, power users, and developers, allowing them to analyze data and administer reports and KPIs.
SAP Activate: extension of best practices
More best practices are mapped in SAP S/4HANA Enterprise Management 1610. The processes for Australia, Belgium, China, France, the Netherlands, Canada, the Philippines, Singapore, the UK and Hungary were integrated into the software. Naturally the corresponding Fiori apps are available for these countries as well.
