What's in Each SAP S/4HANA On-Premise Release

March 30, 2020

SAP S/4HANA—first introduced in February 2015—is SAP’s current ERP system as well as the core of the intelligent enterprise. It’s the future state that’s already here. 

SAP has released an upgrade to the on-premise edition each year since it first introduced SAP S/4HANA. Those include 1511, 1610, 1709, 1809, and most recently, 1909. Each of these releases has introduced significant additions and advances to the platform, as well as some unintended consequences. In this article, we’ll go over the five major on-premise releases, detail their most notable additions, and give you the information you need to decide which version of SAP S/4HANA is right for your enterprise.

SAP S/4HANA: Release 1909

For the third year in a row, SAP buckled down on automation and machine learning. SAP S/4HANA release 1909 went even further, ingraining these capabilities into the core of the platform. The “Digital Core,” as SAP calls it, is a new architecture that embeds automation and system intelligence to help with business practices across the entire SAP S/4HANA platform. 

Version 1909 introduced new innovations to many of the SAP S/4HANA key LoBs that directly use all these new automated capabilities. For example, customers in the manufacturing sector now have a predictive material and resource planning application that can reduce inventory carry costs by predicting the demand for components and materials. 

The finance and sales components of SAP S/4HANA also saw significant updates. Financial users now have access to group reporting and financial planning with SAP Analytics Cloud. Users working in sales have more workflows for sales documents—for example, they can manage approvals for workflows and receive notifications related to those workflows.
