SAP presents new tools to help customers simplify business
SAP has presented its road map and new tools to help customers conquer the complex challenges that businesses face in a world of ubiquitous data.
SAP is the smart companion to navigate the data jungle: analytical applications with cloud-based access to all data sources; collaborative intelligence to help companies understand and react to the changing work environment; and finally, intelligent assistants that take away the tedium of repetitive tasks.
The company introduced general availability of SAP S/4HANA Cloud 1705, enabling businesses to make their processes more efficient and automated. The 1705 release most notably features general availability for SAP CoPilot, a digital assistant for the enterprise that is aware of business context, driving efficient collaboration, quickly recognizing and connecting to business objects and offering in-context chat.
Further embedded machine learning capabilities offer predictive analytics for increased end-user efficiency, automatic invoice matching and more.
SAP S/4HANA Cloud is SAP’s intelligent enterprise resource planning (ERP) software-as-a-service solution with contextual analytics, digital assistant capabilities, machine learning and the award-winning SAP Fiori user experience.
