The Sky is the Limit with SAP S/4HANA Public Cloud

In recent years, the manufacturing industry has been struggling. With a pandemic fresh in the memory, among other things, as a manufacturing company you now understand all too well the need for change. You look for ways to reduce risk and embrace change faster. Although the aftermath of the turbulent past years is still being felt, you want to look forward and see your goals shaped in a different way. With SAP S/4HANA Public Cloud, you have everything you need to get your manufacturing company ready for the future and the Sky is the Limit. Do you dare to be a high-flyer?

Revenue growth, reduced risk and more efficient operations

SAP Insights Research Center asked manufacturing companies where their priorities lie for the future. This survey shows that revenue growth is one of the priorities. Forty percent said they wanted to achieve this through the introduction of new products or services. Another key priority is reducing risk. In this regard, strengthening the supply chain is a crucial focus for nearly half of the manufacturers surveyed, followed by better protection against cyber attacks. Producers also want to become more efficient and improve processes. To make that happen, 84 percent of manufacturing companies surveyed see technological innovation as a top priority for the next three to five years.

Digital transformation even more important

Producers have long recognized the importance of digitization. The sweeping changes of recent years have made that realization even more apparent. Nearly ninety percent of those surveyed now see that a digital transformation of their organization will lead to positive business performance. But how can manufacturing companies quickly and relatively easily have the right technological tools to meet their priorities?

A digital transformation aims to make your business efficient, flexible and future-proof. Modern technology and digital tools contribute to fundamental changes in processes, operations and business models. Quinso specializes in sustainable supply chain solutions in the manufacturing industry. We don’t do anything else! And that’s not all, we not only transform supply chains, but often go further, from business consulting to implementation.

Six key benefits of SAP S/4HANA Public Cloud

With SAP S/4HANA Public Cloud, manufacturers have a complete modular cloud ERP powered by artificial intelligence and analytics. We list six key benefits of SAP S/4HANA Public Cloud.

Flying start thanks to best practices

SAP S/4HANA Public Cloud is based on best practices. That means you benefit from proven successful business processes and solutions. That way, you don’t have to figure out for yourself what works for your organization. Thanks to those best practices, you also shorten the implementation process considerably. So you can get started in no time. From Quinso, we have previously guided implementations at successful organizations such as Yanmar Marine International, Fujifilm, IGM and AEG.

Optimal maneuverability

Manufacturing companies have busy and not so busy times. To respond proactively to that, you want to move with them in terms of digital capacity. Thanks to SAP S/4HANA Public Cloud, you have maximum scalability. You easily scale up and down computing power and storage and add new technologies easily, without large investments in hardware and software. That way, as an organization, you are optimally agile to move with whatever comes your way.

More control over costs

For a traditional IT infrastructure, you have to invest quite a bit. Think hardware, software, installation and maintenance. Especially if your organization is growing – and you need to continually expand that IT infrastructure – those costs can quickly add up. With a cloud solution like SAP S/4HANA Public Cloud, you save on hardware and maintenance costs. Plus, you have more control over which solutions and tools you turn on and off.

Easier sustainable working

Sustainability plays a hugely important role in a future-proof manufacturing company. SAP S/4HANA Public Cloud makes it easier to reduce product footprints, introduce more sustainable packaging, be transparent about environmental goals and strategically choose suppliers that contribute to those goals, among other things.

Benefit from management and maintenance

SAP S/4HANA Public Cloud is a Software as a Service (SaaS) solution and is therefore fully managed and maintained by SAP. Moreover, it is based on the SAP S/4HANA platform. That means you automatically benefit from SAP’s latest technologies and innovations. Consider smart innovations such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), robotic process automation (RPA) and analytics.

Continuously the best safety

The security of a traditional IT infrastructure must be kept proactively up-to-date. If you don’t, you will soon be vulnerable to hackers and malware. A cloud solution like SAP S/4HANA Public Cloud features advanced firewalls and data encryption technologies for the most optimal security. In addition, SAP actively maintains that security, so your data is continuously well protected and stays that way.
