As with platform management with SAP HANA, it can raise a whole host of questions.

Here are our top five questions into regards our SAP S/4HANA and our answers.

If there are any unanswered questions you have then please get in touch.

1. Can I effectively manage my costs for sizing?

Yes you can and there are several options of doing this. One option is to migrate your landscape to the cloud. The Cloud gives us a lot more flexibility with increasing and reducing storage availability. By optimising our storage and planning the capacity, whether it’s on-prem or the Cloud, we can manage a more stable environment. Centiq have created blueprints to help you understand the options available to you and which would best suit your needs.

2. How can improve the stability of my SAP HANA environment?

You can save a lot of time and money if you’re prepared to optimise your SAP HANA estate. By embracing automation across the 1,000’s of processes we have available, we are able to reduce the potential of errors, as well as process time. This also gives us a safety net of understanding when a problem has occurred, and quickly too. If you’re interested in increasing the stability of your SAP HANA estate, talking to a trusted partner can help you reach your full potential.

3. What and how can I automate to manage processes effectively?

SAP HANA comes with 1,000’s of processes and when we’ve migrated from a legacy platform, we often bring a lot of these processes with us. Initially this can be fine, but it may mean that your HANA environment doesn’t run as quickly it is designed to run. By automating a lot of these processes we give the landscape a chance to be able to run to it’s full effectiveness. Automation is one of Centiq’s passions.

4. How do I benefit from automating my SAP HANA processes?

Outside of migration, automating many of the processes with SAP HANA frees up time for you to innovate. Your IT team can turn from fire fighting to proactively planning ahead and innovating your SAP HANA landscape. As legislation’s increase, especially throughout industries like Financial Services and Insurance, we’re seeing a more desperate need for tough governance of processes within organisations. Automation can help keep you on top of data laws and legislation.

5. As SAP HANA & S/4HANA mature, do our skill sets need to change/update?

There will always be changes in certifications and skill requirements when it comes to technology and these can be expensive, both time and money-wise to keep on top of. A way to maintain these requirements is by including a trusted partner in your plans. Centiq can guide you towards the certs you may need for your SAP HANA and S/4 HANA estates. Another option being, Centiq become an extension of your team. We’re continually updating our industry certs to keep on top of the changes within SAP.
