    Hello Bilal Razem

    First, let me say that your question is... well... not a very precise or elaborate one. Also you post two questions at the same time - the title asks about differences between R/3 and S/4HANA, whereas the body - about R/3 and SAP HANA. Those are two different questions.

    You need to understand that SAP HANA is generally speaking a database, whereas S/4HANA is an ERP system utilizing HANA database.

    So if you ask about differences between R/3 and HANA, you are comparing pears and apples. The answer could be - the difference is the same as between a car and an engine.

    Now seriously, S/4HANA is a next generation ERP system from SAP. It supersedes ERP ECC, which long time ago superseded R/3. R/3 is an old version of ERP system from SAP.

    To get general overview of what S/4HANA is, go to:

    Then you can see a detailed list and explanations of the differences (simplification) between ERP and S/4HANA:
