Cloud computing adoption has been increasing rapidly with large organizations adopting cloud-first strategy for implementing new solutions. Organizations are evaluating adoption of public cloud because of its ability to meet location-specific requirements, such as data sovereignty, low-latency and network bandwidth. SAP S/4HANA Public Cloud for a Resilient Business has been designed to optimally address these dynamic preferences of organizations.
