RISE with SAP S/4HANA Public Cloud ERP for Mid-market & Large Companies

SAP S/4HANA Public Cloud varies from its predecessor S/4HANA Essential Edition, in terms of the complexity and flexibility of processes it accommodates. S/4HANA Public Cloud has several UI options to select and expand functionality you want with greater user-friendliness. It is ideal for those who want to do away with managing the entire IT infrastructure without compromising on flexibility.

SAP S/4HANA ERP, available in 64 countries in 39 languages has cloud, on-premise and hybrid deployment options. However, depending on the nature of hosting, the solution flexibility and functionality varies. SAP S/4HANA Public Cloud is a single tenant offering with a dedicated Cloud landscape.
