Digital transformation and the deployment of applications in the cloud has been a key topic of discussion within the enterprise software market for several years but that conversation has been accelerated by the global events of 2020. Organizations whose workforces had been entirely on-site have had to quickly convert to a remote work environment. Many of those companies have scrambled to address critical infrastructure changes and implement cloud-based applications to provide faster and more reliable access for remote users.
As organizations continue their transition to SAP S/4HANA, more are focusing on making it a single source of integrated business and financial data. SAPinsider has observed this trend in multiple reports in 2020 starting in April as a strategy being pursued by 42% of respondents in our SAP S/4HANA Finance: State of the Market report, then as a requirement that was important or very important to 79% of respondents in our Business Case for SAP S/4HANA report in June, and now as a driver and a requirement for a centralized view of data from multiple sources and systems in this report. Without tools and an integration strategy, this centralization is not possible.
