Innovation is now a regular occurrence, challenging both small businesses and world-leading organizations to improve their performance with technology that offers higher capabilities. With rapid change as the new normal, it’s more important than ever to future-proof a company’s backend and customer-facing processes. Logistically, especially with everything else businesses have had to deal with in the last couple of years, transformation can be slow.
At NTT DATA, it’s our goal to help you to not only keep up but stay ahead. To explain how that’s possible, we need to first discuss a technological development decades in the making which is now an everyday tool – the Cloud.
The technology behind the Cloud has developed massively in the past few years and it’s not slowing down any time soon. From a business perspective, it is the backbone of storage, collaboration, scalability and even security.
In fact, in an age of remote working, desktops and other location-reliant tools seem outdated and impractical. The numbers support the bright future of Cloud technology as “Worldwide end-user spending on public cloud services is forecast to grow 20.4% in 2022 to total $494.7 billion” according to Gartner. The transition from the physical to the Cloud is secure.
Businesses are investing in this technology because having a cloud-first approach is becoming a necessity, not just a choice, with Gartner estimating that 85% of organizations will be following this principle by 2025.
As well as the post-pandemic impact, the Cloud initiative is also being pushed by the call for sustainability. Why repurchase new office-ware every few years when so much can be done digitally? Both mandated requirements and customer preferences are driving organizations towards carbon-neutral commitments which Cloud providers are responding to in order to fulfill demand.
As the Cloud industry grows, so do the possibilities. There is one provider in particular bringing future-proof Cloud solutions to ahead of the curve businesses with capabilities that Smart Businesses just can’t ignore.
As a leading force in the technological sector, SAP creates advanced business management software that puts centralization and security first. With over 230 million cloud users, the technology SAP develops breaks down barriers to efficient data processing and information flow so teams across a business and across organizations have access to what they need, when they need it and without compromising security.
Ultimately, this disruptive technology affects businesses’ bottom line. With improved workflows, higher productivity and the ability to adapt smoothly, customer service is greatly improved. With both internal and external processes running at their full potential, success can flow and grow.
SAP’s latest development is S/4HANA which allows complete management of business operations from one software. With 50 years of experience in Enterprise Resource Planning software, they have designed a platform for the modern business based on Cloud technology. Including an in-memory database, industry-specific processes, intelligent dashboards, advanced analytics and more, SAP S/4HANA is supporting business performance today with tomorrow’s technology.
So how do you transition to this?
RISE with SAP is a business package designed to help start this technological transformation sooner rather than later. It combines the SAP tools, services and software into one subscription with one price. Instead of needing different contracts for licenses, infrastructure, support services and so on, one contract covers all business needs.
However, RISE with SAP is not limited to the S/4HANA Cloud. It also offers a range of tools to support business growth. For example, Process Discovery for S/4HANA Transformation identifies opportunities for improvement in business processes. The Readiness Check supports smooth technical migration. The SAP Logistics Business Network starter pack is designed to encourage collaboration with suppliers, partners and customers.
The SAP S/4HANA Cloud is the center of a family of tools disrupting the market.
Here at NTT DATA, we champion the development of RISE with SAP, a complete set of solutions that gives businesses access to all the tools they need to become an Intelligent Enterprise. We add value by providing planning, migration and maintenance services as well as additional assets. As RISE with SAP covers the three key elements of software, infrastructure and infrastructure management, our complementary services and tools fill in the gaps and ensure a successful integration or migration to SAP S/4HANA.
From implementation services such as AEMS to sustainability solutions, Cloud services via agreements with hyperscalers, empowerment of intelligence in business processes and more, we elevate the RISE with SAP initiative. By complementing the potential SAP S/4HANA offers, we are able to (R)evolutionize the implementation of innovation, accompanying each business throughout the journey to ensure the best results possible.
We spearhead transformation by mapping business needs, managing the technological migration and applying the next level technology to its full capabilities.
