SAP delivers innovation to address customers’ most pressing needs

(Press Release)

At the SAP Sapphire conference in Orlando, Florida, SAP has announced new innovations that deliver business value for customers in four critical areas: supply chain resilience, sustainability, business process transformation, and no-code application development.

According to a recent survey from Boston Consulting Group, while 80% of companies are turning to digital solutions to navigate current business challenges, only about 30% are successfully achieving a true digital transformation of their business. The innovations announced today will help SAP customers accelerate their transformation journey with cloud-based solutions that provide the end-to-end business process support customers most need. The announcements come on the first day of SAP Sapphire, SAP’s global customer and partner conference, taking place in person and virtually May 10–12, 2022.

“For 50 years, SAP’s mission-critical solutions and deep industry expertise have helped businesses around the world run their best,” said Christian Klein, CEO and member of the Executive Board of SAP SE. “We’re uniquely positioned to continue enabling our customers’ success in a rapidly evolving world by driving cloud-based digital transformation that solves customers’ most pressing challenges, from supply chain resilience to sustainability.”

 

Resilient supply chains and intelligent business networks

SAP innovations improve supply chain efficiency and transparency, enabling improved performance and resilience. Through its ongoing partnership with Apple to transform the way people work on iPhone and iPad, SAP is announcing today a new suite of apps that streamline the digital supply chain and empower workers with intuitive tools. The first two of these mobile apps – SAP Warehouse Operator and SAP Direct Distribution – launched today and are available now in the Apple App Store.

In addition, the new SAP Digital Manufacturing Cloud solution brings together the latest analytics, edge computing, automation, and state-of-the-art innovations supporting manufacturing processes end to end to help customers optimize manufacturing performance. SAP Business Network also continues to evolve as the world’s largest business network, and with the planned integration of Taulia software customers can unlock the value tied up in their working capital.

 

Moving businesses from talk to action on sustainability

The increase in the number of SAP solutions for sustainability uniquely positions the software to help companies move from well-meaning talk to meaningful action. New innovations out today include new capabilities in the SAP Cloud for Sustainable Enterprises solution to help companies innovate across key areas of sustainability management. The enhanced SAP Product Footprint Management solution helps customers reduce product carbon footprints at scale with live connectivity with SAP S/4HANA Cloud, including transport and travel capabilities.

 

Enabling business process transformation

Customers continue to adopt the RISE with SAP solution to redesign their end-to-end business processes and transition to a modular, agile ERP in the cloud. Several customers will be on stage at SAP Sapphire to showcase how they use RISE with SAP to deliver business innovation. Partners are also helping our customers scale these innovations through best practices and bespoke solutions: RISE with SAP and SOAR with Accenture now integrate and deliver what businesses need for a cloud-based transformation, including cloud infrastructure management, application management, and operations services.
