Following are the advantages of using SAP S/4 HANA −
SAP S/4 HANA takes advantages of HANA's multi tenancy feature, with this option we can run ECC and CRM or any other satellite system on one box. A typical ECC - CRM data transfer accounts for 60% of overall system load, with this multi tenancy option this data transfer load will go away.
SAP removed the redundant tables required for aggregates and indices. This leads us to fewer table to work upon, that means less table locks, less data to manipulate and better performance.
Guided procedures results in faster rollout and reduced learning curve for end users.
