What is sLOG or Simple Logistics on S/4 HANA?
The market has seen huge increases in the number of S/4HANA implementations globally, whether they are for the S/4HANA general suite, or more specifically Simple Finance or S/4HANA Finance. But what’s going on with S/4HANA Enterprise Management, also known as sLOG or Simple Logistics?
In the same way that SAP S/4HANA Finance is the next step for SAP FI/CO systems, S/4HANA Enterprise Management is the next phase for the ECC6.0 traditional logistics modules, for example SD, MM, PP etc..
Similarly to S/4HANA Finance, it will take a bit of time before everyone decides that they need to move their existing systems to SAP S/4HANA Enterprise Management. Options need to be assessed, customers need to be convinced that it is the best option for them and it is worth the cost of the project. As with Simple Finance, there will be a significant increase in the number of ongoing projects and customers carrying out these implementations.
If we look at the SAP revenue numbers for 2017 and the number of customers purchasing the new solutions (Hybris, S/4HANA, SuccessFactors among others), it is clear to see that SAP have been very successful with their cloud solutions up until now. What is also clear to see is that there is a significant lack of certified resources in the market at the moment, meaning these projects and implementations can’t happen as quickly or abundantly as they otherwise might be.
So, if you’re thinking about retooling, is now the right time? YES!
