S/4HANA Cloud offers the proven functions of S/4HANA without the complexity of operating your own infrastructure. S/4HANA Cloud is the ERP from the cloud, operated on the infrastructure of SAP.
The software runs on the same technological basis as the proven SAP S/4HANA. Costly and time-consuming updates are a thing of the past. The entire S/4HANA cloud infrastructure is upgraded to the latest release status every three months. SAP therefore takes care of the updates, the operation of the system and brings with each release new functions that are automatically available. The software is operated via the browser and the new UX concept Fiori. You can also use the software on a tablet and are generally independent of the operating system (MAC/Linux/Windows).
The second release of the year has arrived! With the power of solutions such as our full SAP S/4HANA Cloud, we ensure that you have an easy-to-use Cloud-ERP on your side, which is continuously improving and offering more and more features.
We would like to introduce the following four topics and functions of the current release.
It is now possible to monitor, approve and process payment lots for both SAP and non-SAP systems. A central hub for these activities leads to an increased degree of automation of the entire end-to-end process and thus to a better visibility of the entire cash flow.
The new Graphical Kanban Board makes it easy for you to constantly monitor your control cycles with the circulating Kanban containers. This innovation provides an easy-to-understand graphical monitor, which is represented by different colors indicating, for example, missing parts or bottlenecks for each supply area.
With the Order-to-Cash Dashboard we offer new insights into sales volume, profit margin and incoming sales and service orders in various dimensions. With this one-stop shop, you can check who manages sales and customer service for an organizational unit and view incoming sales and service orders.
To increase service excellence with in-house repair processes, we publish repair quotes as part of our SAP S/4HANA Cloud 2005 Release for Service. This function enables you to provide customers with cost estimates for requested repair items.

The Cloud SDK for S/4HANA Cloud allows developers to create their own extensions. TeamWork is already working on several extensions for developers which will be available soon on the APP Exchange.
