SAP S/4 SIMPLE FINANCE

SAP SIMPLE FINANCE Training Course

S/4HANA, the new business suite of SAP is designed especially for the digital economy. SAP HANA was introduced by SAP in 2010. This fast database made a significant change and revolutionized the method to storage of the database record. This platform can support row-based storage as well as column-based storage. This is the main strength of SAP HANA. The main difference of these two storage methods is that row- based method stores records of tables in a row sequence while the column based method stores the data in columns. The benefits of this feature are better compression, faster data access and enhanced parallel processing that means fast ad-hoc reporting, on-the-fly aggregations.

Haroon Arshad, a solution lead finance on the implementation of S/4 HANA Finance, states that it was the time to utilize this business suite due to its capability to retrieve data as well as information quicker. With the code optimization and shifting processing logic, it is possible to save time since all the calculations are made at the level of the database itself. This enhances the large calculations like variance calculations, month- end settlements, and interest calculations.
