ABM Global Solutions, SAP Introduce S/4 HANA Through Simulation Workshop
In an era where digital revolution is the new game, ABM Global Solutions (AGS) has been at the forefront and has continued to introduce innovations to enable businesses to optimize their operations through its digital solutions offerings. A trusted business management solutions provider in the Philippines and an ePLDT subsidiary, AGS, together with SAP, the leading enterprise software company in the world, successfully launched TECH TALKS: ERP Simulation for S/4 HANA at the SAP NAC Office in Taguig City.
SAP S/4HANA is a real-time ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) suite for digital businesses built on an advanced in-memory platform and offers a personalized, consumer-grade user experience with SAP Fiori. It allows midsize to large enterprises to connect all of their business processes, obtain live information and insights, and seamlessly integrate their enterprises within the digital world. This core digital solution also supports the Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data, real-time analytics, mobile, business networks, third-party systems, and a number of other functions.
The workshop engaged Chief Financial Officers, Chief Information Officers, Procurement, and Sales and Marketing Heads of various companies in an immersive and interactive simulation experience. Participants were grouped together as hypothetical companies where they had to outperform other teams in terms of sales, savings, and growth in a number of simulated challenges based on real-life business scenarios through the S/4 HANA system. At the end of the activity, participants were able to differentiate S/4 HANA from classic SAP ERP.
The workshop aims to educate attendees on how SAP S/4 HANA can empower business users with insights to act in the moment and utilize its immediate, intelligent, and integrated features to go beyond the usual automation of their entire processes. Participants of the event were also encouraged to digitize their business processes to enjoy the opportunities and overcome the common challenges of any business such as data decentralization, business disruptions, excessive spending, and manual errors due to absence of an integrated system.
