SAP have announced their latest suite of solutions, SAP C/4HANA, designed to modernise customer relationship management, which was announced during this year's SAPPHIRE NOW conference.
SAP C/4HANA is an integrated offering designed to modernise the sales-only focus of legacy CRM solutions. Following the completed acquisitions of market leaders Hybris, Gigya and CallidusCloud, SAP now ties together solutions to support all front-office functions, such as consumer data protection, marketing, commerce, sales and customer service.
The SAP C/4HANA portfolio includes SAP Marketing Cloud, SAP Commerce Cloud, SAP Service Cloud, SAP Customer Data Cloud (including the acquired Gigya solutions) and SAP Sales Cloud (including the acquired CallidusCloud solutions). Additionally, SAP Sales Cloud unites the SAP Hybris Revenue Cloud solution and SAP Hybris Cloud for Customer (comprised of SAP Hybris Sales Cloud and SAP Hybris Service Cloud solutions).
These cloud solutions — formerly on the market under the SAP Hybris brand name — as well as SAP’s commerce and customer engagement organisation are now consolidated under the SAP Customer Experience business unit to support a consistent brand experience.
The new SAP C/4HANA suite will offer full integration with SAP’s business applications portfolio, led SAP S/4HANA. The combination of assets features new machine learning capabilities from SAP Leonardo as well as the new SAP HANA Data Management Suite, which enables companies to gain visibility and control of their highly distributed data.
