SAP Analytics Cloud boosts reporting on S/4HANA at Everlam

Recently Everlam took up the challenge to boost the reporting for their S/4HANA system using SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC). Everlam was missing real time data visibility on their S/4 system. Most of their reporting was done with a lot of manual effort and input from different SAP tables and external sources. This led them to the decision implement SAC and start creating reports based on standard or custom CDS views in S/4 HANA. Flexso helped Everlam in this journey by inspiring them with the standard content already available in SAC and by building custom CDS views when necessary, among other things.

Idelco Insulation Achieves Warehouse Efficiency with AGV integration leveraging SAP S/4HANA Cloud

Idelco aimed to streamline its warehouse operations, which included the integration of a third-party Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV) system and the automated tracking of pallets throughout the warehouse using Radio Frequency (RF) technology. To meet these needs, they decided to leverage the EWM functionality provided by S/4HANA Cloud (RISE with SAP) in conjunction with BTP/Cloud Integration Suite. This choice enabled them to establish a fully automated, end-to-end process, starting from production and extending to the storage and staging phases, all without the need for human intervention.

Happy UX (Fiori) & authorization marriage, happy users!

User Experience in SAP S/4HANA (FIORI) is inseparable from and in line with the authorizations. What a user sees is one on one linked with the roles and authorizations of that user. So where companies in the past had sometimes a challenging time to define a future proof authorization concept, this becomes even more important when moving towards SAP S/4HANA. We start from the user perspective and dive into the possibilities to translate user expectations into an appropriate setup. And off course we highlight what is on the shelve available to get the UX journey started. The following topics will be tackled: Fiori UX for business users, SAP Best practices for Fiori implementation, our Expertum approach and What about Public Cloud?
