What is SAP S/4 HANA ?

All,

I read few documents and FAQ on SAP S/4 HANA. But I still have lot of questions in my mind where in I couldn't find the exact answers.

Basically, I have below questions to be clarified

  • What is SAP S/4 HANA ?. Is it a software like Front end Application ( HANA Studio) ?. Why should we go for SAP S/4 HANA ?
  • SAP S/4 HANA is only for ECC(OLTP) or for SAP BW ( OLAP) ?
  • If the existing customer already has SAP HANA why should we go for SAP S/4 HANA ?
  • What would be the Key roles in SAP S/4 HANA ?
  • What exactly we do in SAP S/4 HANA ( ABAP Coding, ETL , Modeling, DEveloping REports ) ?
  • What knowledge should we have to work on SAP S/4 HANA ? ( ABAP Programmer, BW Developer, Functional Consultant ) ?
  • How can I see the Look and feel how does S/4 Looks like ?
  • How should I install S/4 ?. What are the prerequisites ?

Could someone clarify me above questions ?

Appreciate your prompt response ?

Regards,

HA

    Hi.

    All of those are good questions.. In summary S/4 Hana is the acronim for SAP Business suite for Hana. It is a business suite entirely based on SAP Hana, similar but not the same SAP ERP product. It can be run entirely on the cloud, on premise or you can also create a hybrid implementation.

    To get first hand information about it you can start giving a look to this free OPENSAP course:

    If you wanna know how S/4 Hana looks like, you can test a trial version here:

    Existing SAP applications can be extended to SAP HANA Cloud Platform. There's a course that explain this also:

    Last but no least, you can find full FAQ information in this post, you probably have seen it but I'm adding it just to remind you.
