In R/3, R represents Real Time, and 3 indicates the 3 layer architecture.

In that way what does S/4 is indicative of ?

Also what does mean by word "HANA" ?

Gajanan,

I have heard/read several versions of 'what S4HANA' stands for but most believable:

HANA = High-performance ANalytic Appliance (although some state that HANA is a proper noun & not an acronym)

S4 = comes from the fact that it is the 4th generation of SAP Business Suite

hence

SAP Business Suite 4 (generation) for SAP High-performance ANalytic Appliance = SAP S4 HANA.

It is stated that it's development involved (among other things) rewriting 400 million lines of code and does not require batch processing.

And since you mentioned - it is much more "Real Time" that R/3 or any other ERP product of matching scale.

I think it is a very exciting product launched by SAP and with all the new architecture it can also be called HAsso's New Architecture (another popular side story about HANA's acronym)
