What SAP Said About S/4HANA in the Cloud Being Easily Extended
SAP released a major paper titled SAP S/4HANA Extensibility for Customers and Partners. In this paper, SAP proposed that S/4HANA in the cloud would be “extensible” (and introducing a new word to the SAP lexicon) and made a variety of claims ranging from improved upgradeability to reduced implementation timelines.
The Truth About S/4HANA in the Cloud Being Easily Extended?
As we covered in the article How Accurate is SAP on the Use of the Term Extensible for S/4HANA in the Cloud?, the term extensibility is a synonym for customization. This highly dishonest article by SAP attempts to thoroughly mislead the reader into accepting both a number of false assumptions about the history of SAP (for instance that R/3 became popular because of low cost “extensibility”) as well as incorrect assumptions about the future. In the paper, SAP proposes things that customers will be able to leverage that literally do not exist.
