S/4HANA allows organizations to evolve their finance function to increase automation of traditionally manual processes. Especially the Financial Services Industry benefits from adopting S/4HANA as a new innovative platform and to improve insights into large sets of structured and unstructured data. This allows banks and insurers to focus on what differentiates them in the market and to realign processes in order to reduce complexity.

The shift to S/4HANA allows companies to streamline business processes, workflows, applications, technical infrastructure and the entire IT landscape. 

SAP HANA in-memory technology allows SAP customers to instantly access large amounts of data. Combined with simplified integration techniques across SAP and non-SAP applications, this enables FSI companies to reshape their products and services portfolio in the digital age. Deeper and faster finance insights become possible by leveraging the Universal Journal, the new Group Reporting as well as real-time analytics, planning and reporting functions within the SAP Analytics Cloud.


The most important factors to successfully implement or transition to S/4HANA are: 

A clear objective 

To tap into the potential of S/4HANA and find the way among the various deployment options, it is essential to define clear objectives for the transformation, backed by comprehensive and measurable KPIs. ifb helps to define your objectives with the proven “Transformation Assessment” and to project these onto a transformation roadmap.

A robust architectural framework

Before and during an implementation or transformation, robust enterprise-architecture frameworks and a proven project methodology help to stay focused on the originally formulated objectives. ifb’s REFRAMETM architecture and project framework offers precisely this required connection between enterprise architecture and project management. The multidimensional approach used by REFRAMETM ensures maximum control and transparency at all times throughout the transformation.
