如果你是企業的工程師，即使你知道SAP S/4HANA 有多厲害﹑功能有多全面，你可能會也對立刻升級/遷移SAP S/4HANA有點猶豫。 這也無可厚非，工程師的主要工作是管理系統的設計和工作量以及系統的更新，所以你可能不會太積極重新採用新技術，原因不難理解，新技術往往需要時間/資源重新學習或適應背後的支援工作。話雖這樣說，墨守成規很容易不進則退，因此工程師需要不斷關注此類升級/遷移的進展情況。 在2019年2月和3月，SAPinsider開展了一項調查以了解SAP客戶在使用SAP S/4HANA的情況。 調查結果顯示大多數受訪者（70％）在不同的程度上都在朝著升級/遷移到SAP S/4HANA這個新的解決方案邁進。 技術是一個很大的心理關口。在沒有徹底審查和測試新系統的情況下，採用新系統是一個存在風險的舉動，因為害怕新系統有甚麼差錯，導致錯漏百出。 根據SAPinsider的調查結果顯示出，早期採用新系統的都是由數碼轉營和競爭驅動的企業。 這些企業都是： 優先考慮分析和數據驅動策略; 希望改善決策並支持數字化轉型; 和…
The thing about clouds is that they can make it difficult to see what’s happening. That’s also true when it comes to cloud computing. Cloud is such a broad and fast-moving topic, it’s hard to get a handle on everything.
Maybe that’s why I enjoy Cloud Expo Asia so much. The two-day event does a good job of putting the cloud latest development into perspective. But, with 128 hours of insightful conference content shared by leading industry experts across 12 theatres, you can’t see everything. And picking out precisely what to attend and which booths to visit is tough for the more than 12,000 attendees.
Keeping it simple
At the latest event, SAP tried to simplify that challenge. We invited independent speakers, along with SAP experts, to share their insights on some of the burning issues. The result was a series of Mini Talks which took place in the Expo’s VIP lounge. Held on both days of the Expo, attendees were free to drop-in for a particular session, but many stayed for the full programme
Along with SAP presenters, the talks on Day 1 included guest speakers from CapGemini, covering the Journey to an Intelligent Enterprise, from IBM on creating Cognitive Enterprises, and Blackline, who discussed the last thing many companies want to think – dealing with the challenges of a Financial Close!
They were joined by Horace Leung from the HKPC, who offered advice on how Hong Kong’s thousands of SMEs can Migrate to “Enterprise 4.0,” and Victor Tsang, a partner at HMI, who offered ideas on ensuring Best Practices in Cloud HR.
Day 2 was also packed, with representatives from Deloitte and Dynasis delivering talks on Cloud for Financial Services and digital transformation strategies. They were flanked by SAP, SAP Concur, SAP SuccessFactor and SAP C/4HANA speakers, whose presentations ran the gamut from how to make money (by creating excellent customer experiences) to how to keep as much of it as possible (with intelligent spend management).
