SAP’s High-Performance Analytic Appliance or HANA is the vital platform for all SAP-based applications including the newly introduced SAP S/4HANA business suite. This application combines the synchronic SAP HANA database along with essential application functionalities.

Being a torchbearer for the digital transformation, HANA enables an organization to install applications at a faster pace making sure that requirements are all in line. This procedure gives a 360 degree view of the organization's entire business operations and making it unlikely to become obsolete. Developing an SAP S/4HANA road map prepares an organization to face future challenges.

Now the question which arises is how does an organization begin the SAP S/4HANA Transformation Journey? Is the current system landscape well-equipped to ensure that existing processes stay unhindered during the digital transformation journey?
