PURPOSE AND OBJECTIVES
Customers expect fast ROI with low cost and low risk, so one of SAP’s success factors for the future is the ability to offer simple and rapidly implementable solutions. S/4HANA Cloud, SAP’s next-generation ERP business suite, was designed with this in mind from the start, as for an ERP product in the Cloud a smooth implementation experience is key for success.
This new end-to-end implementation experience includes a “Guided Configuration” approach to customization. Guided Configuration puts configuration settings or “implementation content” in the customizing tables of an S/4HANA Cloud system which enable running business processes out of the box. In addition, it provides the necessary tools to configure the system to the needs of the customer.
The SAP S/4HANA Central Content services organization is part of S/4HANA Cloud Development and enables the S/4HANA Cloud development teams to deliver new features and the business configuration content in high quality based on defined guidelines / governance with each quarterly S/4HANA cloud release. Within Central Content services, the content architecture team works close together with the content development teams and the content framework team – our tool-provider, and other organizations within the SAP S/4HANA cloud area development.
