SAP PRESS has published a book to help professionals seeking to advance their logistics technology with SAP S/4HANA.

Logistics with SAP S/4HANA: An Introduction was written by four SAP experts, led by Deloitte Consulting principals Deb Bhattercharjee and Eric Monti.

“As organisations across industries continue to innovate their business models, SAP has continued to innovate on the technology front,” Bhattacharjee said. “But many executives struggle when it comes to aligning new technology capabilities with new business processes – especially in the extended supply chain space.”

The book provides a full overview of the solution, and includes sections on sourcing and procurement, inventory management, warehouse management, inbound and outbound logistics, manufacturing operations, plant maintenance, quality management, SAP Fiori applications, and implementation and migration. The book includes information about key functionalities and innovations, and how to navigate through redesigned processes.

According to Monti, the new publication gives industry leaders more than just a survey of the solution.

“It offers them a view into the possibilities for radically improving operational efficiencies, enhancing user experience, and seamlessly integrating disparate solutions. The book offers readers a solid starting point for exploring the potential results they can deliver – thanks to a fundamentally new platform that combines in-memory computing and a modern digital core ERP,” Monti said.

The book is available in print, electronic, and bundled editions and can be purchased via the SAP PRESS website and
