SAP S/4HANA: ERP system with in-memory database

SAP/4 HANA is the new ERP system from SAP. The previous versions SAP R/3 and SAP ECC will only be supported until 2025. This means that all companies still using SAP R/3 or SAP ECC will have to switch to SAP/4 HANA by 2025.

SAP HANA is the largest technological leap in the SAP world in decades. Not only from a technical point of view, but also from the user's point of view, this results in far-reaching possibilities and perspectives.

SAP HANA is a mandatory requirement

The core of S/4HANA is the in-memory database SAP HANA in which all data is stored in the main memory, so that the database is able to perform extremely powerful analyses and calculations almost in real time. While SAP R/3 or SAP ECC systems can run under many different databases and database types - including SAP HANA - SAP/4 HANA requires the SAP HANA database.

What happens to custom Z-Programs and SAP-Modules?

There are typical difficulties with HANA implementations - e.g. concerning the runability of custom developments - and often only vague ideas exist about what happens with the introduced modules - such as SAP WM - when SAP support or even user rights expire. And what is the best time to switch to the SAP HANA database?
